all the major tools are in the owners tool kit. when i was rebuilding my bike i frequently used allen wreches, phillips screwdriver, and 10mm socket.

I found 8mm, 10mm, 12mm are the most common pieces on the bike.
Also some 14mm ones for exhaust.

For taking the front wheel off you may need something bigger then you have, on my 02 the front nuts are 17mm and 22mm, not sure about on a 98..

A good variety of allen keys is good.

Just make sure you get metric stuff :)

Torque wrench (if you have $)
Zip ties
Rubber mallet
8, 10, 12, 14, 17, 22mm sockets. in 3/8" and 1/4" drive. I'd also get a good 1/2" drive with at least the 17mm and 22mm sockets with a big honking bar for leverage.
Allen keys.
an soortment of various metric size bolts

A mercury stick or something like the Carbtune to sync the carbs is a good idea. If you have one you will have lots of friends. For about $20 you can get enough tools to change your own tires which will save you a bundle if you do much riding.

like cambridge said, a torque wrench will come in handy. i actually got a nice one on ebay for just $25, and it goes up to 120ft-lbs. you will find they will come in handy for removing wheels and changing sprockets as most of the bolts involved in those jobs are to be torqued to certain specifications.

get a service manual to. little expensive, around $45, but so worth it. you can save yourself a lot of $$$$.$$ in repair/service bills.
