Talking Help needed for NOOB in Sydney

Hi Guys, I have a favour to ask.
My mate Nick has just moved to Sydney to study at uni. He has just bought a (well) used XT660 with a rooted drive train.
He's like most students and very short of $$, sought help on the XT660 site with no joy.
If anyone could help him with some advice, a workshop & the right tools to replace his chain & sprockets I know he'd be grateful.
Thanks Guys! Boneman

I've got tools but no shed, and plenty of spare time to help out.

notsoslow and myself (near Concord) are within striking range, Katoom a bit further out

'Cept I dunno what a chain looks like these days...

Workshop, tools and space (we might have to shift a few cars about), evening or weekend (with notice)

PM me if that is helpful

I'm on Pennant Hills Rd in Carlingford, just up the road from the centre of Sydney. Well geographic centre that is

And can deal with chains unlike Viz who just deals in big holes in the ground

Finally get on to 'my' thread

Ahh youíre all too good to me.

Iím so thankful for all the interest shown in helping me out. I really appreciate all the offers; I hope I get to ride with you all one day.

And Boneman; youíve been so helpful; I would have missed all the resources of ADVrider if you hadnít thought to take it upon yourself to start a thread. I still havenít downloaded the manual though, I will do that when I get some time at uni (donít want to excessively use my housemateís wifi)

Iíve sent PMs to a few people (I gather thatís how these forums are meant to work?)

Thank you,
Nick Kamols (camels)
