Thanks Jim. Now I have tool envy.

Looking forward to some date in the future when you can add the 2010 valve adjustment to your DVD. Keep us posted.

As soon as I can get a Guinea pig, I mean willing volunteer, I will be making a 2010 DVD completely from scratch that covers all the new changes in the bikes with the cam-heads.

Thanks,

Jim

But why? You can remove it easily and safely with the screwdriver you already carry. Besides, the BMW one just plain sucks IMHO.

After spending about $50 on a BMW tool and then proceeding to dick one of my coil sticks up with it, now ONLY the screwdriver method will work on that one.

It's a good idea to make sure the aluminum puller is firmly seated on the coil stick to prevent disintegrating the coil stick. Even though mine was, it still came apart so it's a good idea to know how to use the screwdriver method as a primary or alternative way to remove them.

I was lazy and bought the kit. I have used it several times and all the parts have worked great so far. I added a Slime compressor, the fancy spark plug puller and use the bmw tire plug kit. So far do good.

The Adventure Designs kit looks to be what I want, but who is the manufacturer of the high quality American made tools?

Wright they are!

Wright is what is marked on the tools. And they are very nicely made. Overall, it's really a great product from Adventure Designs even though it is a bit spendy but that's got to be because the US made tools are going to be way more expensive than Chinese made.

Hate to sound too jingoistic here, but just when does one start to realize that keeping jobs in the US involves paying a bit more for US labor? Not that buying a tool roll is going to change our balance of payments problems with China but philosophically when and where does one start supporting US made products at a sacrifice out of our own pockets? Addiction to cheap foreign labor has already ruined numerous US companies and industries and everybody realizes it. Somehow the next President (whether O or R) must find a theme and an economic course of action that will start the reversal.

Thanks! I agree with you 100 percent. It is just not a matter of jobs anymore-China is cranking out the aircraft carriers now with American money. Oops, sorry for getting off topic.
From the Wright web site:"Made Entirely in the U.S.A.
From the design and engineering to the forging and finishing, all work on Wright tools is performed in the United States by skilled American workers. We do not use foreign blanks or forgings. Even the steel we use is American-made."

Order placed!

Well written!

I wrote my previous review back in 2010 and liked the kit then. Since then Adventure Designs has came out with an only USA made kit. I've had a couple of my tools break (Trox and socket) and they have been great at replacing them with the USA made stuff. I would recommend this kit highly unless you're really into penny pinching or parts hunting. The kits compact, bike specific and they have great customer service, what more can you ask for.

Thanks for the reply.

I have it and i like it,

one remark, the non chrome bits rust easaly (not that it matters a lot) and the toolrol is a compact, so you cant add to much stuff.

Speaking of tools...I found these on sale at Sears.



Click here they grip 6 type of bolts including TORX



This would be good in a tool kit.
