    are you offering use of your tools and/or services for free or is it strictly pay to play? just trying to figure out if this crosses the line of vendor advertising since you appear to be operating a 'for profit' garage:ear

    I am not going to give new tires away but ADV mebers are welcome to come use my tools for FREE. If you show up at one of our Evening gatherings you might even get FOOD for FREE! We are operating a 'for profit' garage but just not making a profit! :rofl I posted here to provide a place of refuge for riders in need not to make a profit. :ricky

    I know this is a homemade tool but there's gotta be some guys out there with one. Planning an Alaska trip this July and would like to get the bearing upgraded ASAP.

    Thanks in advance.

    You may also add me to the list of available shops/garages. I don't necessarily have any "specialty" tools but if somebody's passin' through and needs a place to change oil, tires, or other repairs, my door is always open ! :D

    Allgonoshow,

    I added your garage to the list on page 1, thanks!


    I haven't heard about anybody offering to loan out an LC4 main bearing puller yet, but maybe somebody will step up when they see this post:evil

    Howdy, I have a 2005 BMW R1200 that I rebuilding from a crash. I have it just about put back together, but am having trouble getting it to start up again.

    Hoping to find someone who has a GS-911 tool that I might be able to get my hands on for a day or three to see if I can't figure out what is up.

    My local area is Milwaukee Wisconsin, but am willing to pay for round-trip shipping/insurance.

    Other idea would be a pooled purchase with other local riders/owners???

    Feel free to PM me or respond here.

    Thanks!

    I done found this and will offer up garage space and tool usage if needed in the Fond du Lac WI area. I don't have much I can ship hither and yon, but I have a small MIG welder, torches, air, Sawzall, dog, small fridge that is generally stocked and a bunch of hand tools. If you need transport, I have a pickup and a small trailer as well.

    I have a small garage, and space is at a premium, but I can generally shuffle all my junk around to make room for a bike. No room at the Inn, but a decent sized backyard to pitch a tent.

    thanks, Suncoast!:thumb


    i take it that you'd like to maintain ownership of the shim tool? the only downside of that is you end up paying for outbound shipping yourself every time somebody borrows it. i added your tool to the second post on page 1 (in the "privately owned, ship-able" section), so just lemme know of i got something wrong or you ever change your mind.
