    This is a great idea!

    I've got several things I'd gladly ship out if needed:

    Twin Max
    Mighty Vac
    1150 GS Manual
    1100S Manual

    I've also got a shop in the middle of West Texas for repairs. I am located in Colorado City, Texas. I can throw a rock and hit I-20. I've got most hand tools and the space for almost any repair.

    Just noticed this thread and what a great idea. I'm about to throw some TKC's on a F650 that I picked up and am looking for someone with one of those nifty H/F tire changers in their garage in the
    Central Coast California area. Glag to bring beer of choice or $ for usage.

    Subcanis,

    Is that doo-too still in the "privately owned" category? In other words, would you need it sent back to you in between each use or are you okay with it being passed around without coming back to you each time?:ear

    <!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->I just picked up a Twin Max TB / Carb syncronizer. If any ADV riders in the area wish to use it just drop me a line. I'd be happy to lend it to you.

    I also have a BMW (Hazet) oil filter wrench for the 1150GS (fits other BMW bikes too, not 12GS however.)

    No shipping, just local guys please. I am in Newburyport, MA, work in Amesbury, right on the NH border, no garage, so all I ask is to just come meet me and take the stuff for the weekend and return it in a timely matter. I do take 6-packs of microbrew beer as donations.

    I'm looking to borrow the tools to do a KLR650 Doohickey.

    Failing their ability, I'll buy 'em, and put them in the pool.

    Anyone got a set I can borrow?

    Also, I have a KLR shop manual, yours for the asking- no matter where you live. 98-03 model, but honestly, did it really change that much? :)

    Also (for onsite use only) a pretty good assortment of hand tools, MIG and ARC welders and basic welding skills- Charleston SC

    I have updated the list of "on-site use only" items on page 1. Since the list is getting kinda long now (that's a good thing:D) I will probably start to organize those items by location soon, to make it easier for folks to find out what tools are available in their specific area... might even do a google map if I get inspired.

    I should probably add "advanced electrical knowledge, digital multimeter, Ninja 650R shop manual" to mine.. sorry, didn't occur to me. Also feel free to activate my "contact" link, and if all else fails, I wouldn't be averse to putting my cell number out there either....

    If anyone needs assistance in the Chattanooga, Tn area I would be more than happy to help. Me and Dave have everything from a Lincoln 215 Pro Mig to most tools needed to get you back on your way. If we don't have it we can usually find it close by...

    I'm about 20 miles southwest of Chicago. I've got a Harbor Freight tire changer, a tire balancer (never used yet), a motorcycle lift, and a pretty good supply of most hand tools. Also a Fluke meter and a mig welder. I have a couple of homemade specialty tools: a tool for holding the damper rod while disassembling the forks, for a KLR , and one for a Yamaha XT350 (they may fit other bikes too).

    You can put me in the "On Site Use" group
