    I'm in melcher, IA and wondering if any one around has a tool and would be willing to help out for a beer or a little cash? Old chain is off and new chain is on about as well as can be without a tool. Thought I'd ask before spending cash on a tool I'll probably use twice in a life time....

    Thanks!

    I appreciate the views guys. Decided not to wait any longer and bought a motion pro PBR tool. So if any of you are in need and close enough by :)

    Thanks!

    You'll be surprised at how many times that little baby will come out of the toolchest, and it will celebrate each and every event by executing a most-beautiful rivet for you.

    There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING like having the proverbial "right tool for a job" to make it as easy as it looks on TV (or YouTube, whatever). You now have a greater overall aggregate mechanicability that will make you more useful to the motorcycling public, to which you belong. I congratulate you.

    I just saw your post, have one, but I'm in Chicagoland, not much use to you. I was in a similar predicament a coupla years ago and resolved it the same way, bought one, you'll use it again, and smile with the results, and at some point a buddy of yours will want to do a chain/sprocket kit, and you'll be able to help him out admirably, and you'll both smile with the results, as the two of you drink your Thank You 12. Repeat. :clap:freaky

    Regards, Mark
