Thanks Ryan

19mm is about 3/4"
Go to any Home Depot or Lowe's and you can get a threaded rod coupler for $2:

Make sure that you measure the OD. The one I got at Lowes as well as the one I got at Ace Hardware was too small. I understand that The ones that Home Depot sell are the correct 19mm size.

Matter of fact, I had two of them, William, and loved them.

BTW, I ended up making my own tool out of a bolt with a 19 mm head, plus two nuts jammed together on the other end. None of that fancy smancy store bought stuff for me.

Be sure to keep your receipt to be able to return the nut when you are done.

Better yet, wear loose pants with a pocket.

I screwed up and lost the receipt. I guess I'll put it in the flea market.

Best offer?

It's in the blood I tell ya.

I at least welded the nut on the bolt. I used a 17mm nut so that I could have both end sizes.

Great Christmas gifts for people who know you have or had a KLR.

Sure will. Just add $19.99 to the price of the tool and I'll include free shipping.

But wait, there's more!

Get an additional FZig wheel tool for free!

Just add an additional $29.99 to the above for postage and handling.

Amen, Bruddah! Ain't it the truth...

You can't post about cameras in a Super Tenere thread... It's against the rules. But you can gush like a schoolgirl, getting all warm and gooey, about the latest model BMW "Roundel Recall Roundup" to your heart's content.

Wonder if the Germans have improved the quality of the mahogany they use in the final drive bearings...
