    I've got some tools in Alabama, but I doubt they could be borrowed to often(I don't live in Alabama often, you'd have to convince my parents you know me to use my toolbox:rofl, if it moves with me(big 5 foot tall cabinet) to wherever once I live somewhere anybody is welcome to it). I am a Wyotech graduate, trained in upholstery, welding(mig, tig, oxy, aluminum/steel, sheet/plate, tubing) regular maintenance and chassis/sheetmetal fabrication...and i'd be happy to help anybody I could with anything. Don't exactly know how that would all work out, but if you want a new seat cover or a rack and you can find me a machine/welder and buy me a beer...:evil.

    KLR 650 "doo" tools on the way to my workshop in Charleston, SC. Will be available for on-site use (at my house, or I ride to yours) upon arrival and reassembly of my engine.

    Also, just bought a cycle/ATV lift and tire spoons. Same deal, 'cept you're gonna have to wait till I get the cage running again to borrow my lift :)

    Hi Eran,
    I've got KLR doohickey wrench and flywheel puller that I'm willing to ship, and a twinmax, but I'd rather lend that out locally face to face, because I'll need it back every 6000 miles.
    If you have a wanted list - or tools we could all chip in on, I would like to get a GS-911 fault code reader. They are $199. Maybe enough people would be interested to get together and buy one for the tool pool?

    LR folks-

    here's the deal. I have a 685 KLR motor that needs to be reassembled. I understand I'll need the doo tools to assemble it.

    I won't however, be able to use them for just a day or two. Probably need them for a week as I reassemble the motor.

    Anyone willing to loan me the doo tools for 2 weeks at the outside? Of course I'll pay shipping.....

    nope.

    http://www.klr650.marknet.us/misc-info.html (scroll to end of page)

    it's 22X1.5, looks like. And the wrench, come to think, is only 1.25" with an offset bend. I was thinking it was 1.5" for some reason, and haven't been able to find that. I have a 1.25" wrench and a torch to bend it up, so shouldn't need the doo tools after all. Assuming I can find the 22X1.5 bolt- how hard could that be? :)

    sorry for the confusion, freakin' flipflop schedule I am working on screws with me BAD. :dunno

    I can get one for you if you'd like me to. Just picked one up in 22X1.5 for my KLR.

    the 22X1.5 cost about $6. Weighs about a pound. Figure shipping from 29420 and PM me if you're interested. Pay me the price of the bolt plus ship and I'll be glad to help out.
