Contact ZenSlug,
I donated my Doohickey tools to the toolpool. ZenSlug should be able to arrange a set for you to use.

Thanks, Joe
joe,

yes, please read the instructions in post 2 on page 1 if you would like to borrow one of the tools we have available. please be advised that the borrowers are responsible for making a small donation and also paying one-way shipping charges for the tools.

however, i think there is a regular klr tech day that happens near ramona every so often, wihch could be another place to find a tool set to borrow/use. you might want to post something in the west forum asking when the next one is, or try contacting eaglemike directly:

also look at klr650.net and leftcoastKLR, other good sources of info.

Just wanted to say thank you again Dust junkie and to Zen Slug & everyone who donates time and tools here!

See you on the trail

racedawg,

thanks for posting that. i have often wondered how much people take advantage of the on-site use tools. i have no way to know since i am not involved in the 'transaction' for those. great to know that at least one person has taken advantage of the service and big thanks to dustjunkie and all the other people who have offered to open their garages to fellow ADVriders in need.


p.s. reading through the last page i am realizing that i have been neglecting my duties to update the list on page 1. i will try to remedy that sometime this week. thanks to everybody who has made offers of tools/garages recently!

761, thanks for the replay and donating the tools to the pool cheers too you!

Zen slug, Since I am a KLR owner and a cheep bastard I think I may be able to save a buck using the tool pool, I am aware there are tech days in Julian in the spring time I just need to get the doo done now.

Is there any way to figure what the cost of shipping would be, I really think the pool is a great idea and want to support it.

Thumb Help!

I can help if a fellow ADV rider needs it.

Have many tools, garage, Marc Parnes balancer, motorcycle lift, stories and working refrigerator to keep beverages chilled!

I work a 4 12 hour day rotating shift, so if I am home I can help out anyone in need.

Also available is a 3 place motorcycle trailer. So if you're stranded give me a shout and I will hopefully be available to help.

(one-five-1-five-6 eight nine-one 3 two-6) leave a message if I don't answer, tired of those annoying tele marketers.

Iowa Falls IA.

Found one locally. It is a weird horseshoe looking thing with 3 prongs to fit in the notches in the nut. If anyone else needs one after I am done I have it and would be happy to loan it out. You could use a metric spanner but it only has one grabbing point and this one utilizes three. Thanks anyway Zen.

does anybody have another bmw f650 shb tool to donate/lend?

does anybody own another bmw f650 steering head bearing tool that they would be willing to donate to the tool pool? due to some very sad circumstances the previous tool has been lost from tool pool circulation. if nobody has one to donate, i will most likely be using some of the accumulated "tool replacement" donation money to purchase a new bmw shb tool since there are two borrowers currently in line.

Thumb Count Me In

Now that I own a house and have a garage, I'd like to be added to the Tool Pool list in Category 3. No tools to ship, but tools to use here in the Calgary, Alberta, Canada region

Tire Changer (you change I'll help)
Air Compressor & attachements
Most sockets in metric & standard (1/4, 3/8 & 1/2 drive)
Metric & Standard Combination wrenches (14 of the most common sizes in each set)

Torque Wrench(es) 3/8" drive (inch lbs) and 1/2"drive (ft lbs)
Motorcycle lift (similar to Craftsman model)
Suzuki repair manual for the 04-07 DL650
Suzuki & Clymer repair manuals for the VS1400 Intruders

Plenty of WD-40 & Duck Tape for the KLR contingent

Trailer, Tiedowns & Ramps for transporting a broken down motorcyle

Laptop for checking info on how to make repairs
Fridge with pop & water (sorry no beer unless you bring yer own, as I typically don't keep it in stock)

I work shiftwork, so my availability to help varies
