    Not all radiator caps (Honda VF750) have a pressure release valve....

    Found out just before I turned my brother's garage into a sauna :)

    Like this...

    I have a great amount of tools from my mechanic/fab days. I plan on aquiring most specific tools I'll need to work on my new F800GS I'm buying this week. Once I get all my tools home (at a friends shop), and some of the speciality tools ordered, I'll be glad to help anyone near the Birmingham Alabama area, or loan speciality tools.

    I have a newly built garage with lifts and lots of tools that
    can be used on your bikes. Air compressor, press, welding table.

    I notice there's a pro GS-911 for sale in the Flea Market right now. How can we get one into the tool pool? Anyone else willing to donate towards having one in circulation?

    It's a nobel idea, the loaner tool thread. Not sure how it is working out.

    I know Indy is a major pass through point -

    I have garage space and hand tools, power tools, air tools, drill press, etc. I can mount and balance tires for you for a nominal fee if non-emergency. I normally have fluids and JB Weld on-hand. No major projects please - but day-repairs and emergencies are welcome to contact me via PM!

    No idea what a doohickey is. Maybe an idea of year and model of bike in question would help.

    The term doohickey has been around for ages. It doesn't apply to any specific part that I know of. Maybe some riders have appropriated this word for their use?

    There is one particular item on KLR650s that is so well known for failure that most KLR owners replace it preemptively, and among dual sport riders it is universally known as the "doohickey". It's one of the rare cases of a generic word being used to refer to a very specific thing, and it taking over.

    Google says it's a "balancer chain adjuster" - I was thinking it was cam chain but not so.

    Anyone willing to loan out a 49mm fork seal driver to a non-ham-fisted type of guy? I need to check out what's what in my DRZ's fork, planning for the worst, hoping for the best.
