I see that this post got bumped.

Vessel sells JIS screwdrivers at a reasonable (but not cheap) price. I wound up buying the JIS #1 ,2, and 3 sizes in the "Phillips Head" configuration, and do not regret it.

Because of the very limited storage space available the only useful repair kit
would be a tire plug kit for a flat tire and co2 cartridges to inflate the tire.

For everything else a cell phone and credit card works the best.

I think John was just referring to the JIS screwdrivers as being a useful addition to a set of shop tools for motorcycle service. Probably not necessary to carry JIS screwdrivers on the bike.

The front brake reservoir cover has two JIS screws. There are also what I believe to be JIS screws retaining the left and right switch pods. There may also be some in and around the engine itself. Maybe the turn signal lenses (can't remember). But essentially...anything that looks like a "Phillips head"...isn't.

I bought a CBR600 toolkit from partzilla. Came with another Allen wrench, a few box wrenches, a spark plug socket, a wrench for the rear axel, and a reversible screw driver.

All are on the lower side regarding quality but they have proven their worth and its awesome have my them on the bike.

I completely forgot about all of those JIS screws used on the 250R... good post Stichill.

The smaller JIS screwdrivers are also handy for electronics.

Japanese Industrial Standard is really the Asian Industrial Standard.

And MIke was right, the JIS screwdrivers stay in the garage, or wherever I am working on a computer.

Definitely. I got a set of precision JIS screwdrivers for working on cameras, phones, printers, laptops, etc.
