The rotor puller bolt is required. Rotor has to come off to get to the doo and the puller bolt is required to remove it. The giant wrench holds the rotor still while you're using the puller bolt to "pop" the rotor off and to retorque the rotor bolt when you put it back together. The special "doo" tools are just the giant wrench and puller bolt.

NOTE TO EVERYONE:
Valves are adjusted COLD. Riding your bike in will make that difficult.
The doo job requires the oil to be drained.

I have the rotor puller bolt.

I'll post up a new thread instead of the continued hijack. It would be helpful for everyone to chime in to the new thread and we'll take it from there.

I'm undecided on "doo". I ordered one spring (32mm) "just in case" and the outer case gasket. Did I hear Lakerider say he had the tools? I'm assuming that 08 stock doo is ok and just the spring might need replacement?

Oh, I also ordered an 08 manual but it's backordered.

Man, those $12.99 parts add up... I'll also need a new rear soon. Maybe I should bring a new TKC too...
I have the manual for 1987 up to 2006 and (07) too I suppose. And I'm sure it applies to much of an 08 as well.

I'm in for the 20th, I think!

I have tools, torque wrenches, metric stuff, etc. Let me know if you need.

I also need a swingarm lube for my KLR.

Of course, this all assumes that I'll be able to get the damn thing running. I have a starter problem, it may be the starter relay, not sure yet. The starter won't stop whirring.

Hopefully I'll get it sorted before then.

No time . . . too busy.

Swingarm check is something I should do too. We'll see...
