    *All your standard pliers/screwdrivers etc.
    *Bike specific standard tools, circlips pliers, spark plug sockets, stands etc.
    *Case splitter.
    *Thread repair kit M6/M8/M10
    *40 piece tap and die set.

    *Flywheel puller to suit modern KTM.
    *Flywheel puller to suit older Yamaha.
    *Various other specialty tools I have lying around.
    *Battery tools drill/impact driver/impact wrench/grinder (for when things get desperate)

    Wish I knew of those last time I compressed my spring. I used ratchet straps and it scuffed the spring a bit.

    Also, I'm in WA State, about half an hour North of Everett and have most automotive tools and driveway (possibly cramped garage) to help perform work.

    I have read the first few pages ,skipped forward a few and the last page. Overall how is it working, what are you doing for a deposit,I would hate to loan a expensive tool and be told it was lost in shipping then see a tool on E-Bay with my markings on it.A retired machinist with a lot of tools acquired over the last 42 years.

    Hey everyone, I'm in Southeast Michigan (Metro Detroit area) and I have a decent tool collection and a three stall garage. Willing to help anyone with day projects or even multi-day projects if it's an emergency. I have a decent base knowledge and always willing to learn or teach if needed.

    Let me know if any of you need anything.

    Is this list still being kept updated and current? Or has it kind of gone by the way side?

    I am in the Boise area. Have tools, a jack/stand for bikes up to 350 pounds. Safe secure storage if you are down and awaiting parts. Fairly decent humidor and spirits :-)

    I also work at a place that employs 15 maintenance men with a huge shop. I have seen them make diamonds out of garbage several times.

    I am in the tiny little town of Robesonia, about 11 miles west of Reading, PA. I have owned and maintained my own BMW motorcycles and cars my entire life. I have a Harbor Freight lift, a few BMW airhead specialty tools (Steering head bearing, Swing arm bearing) All sorts of metric and standard tools as well as a workable knowledge.) Feel free to drop me a PM.

    I live in Maryland in between Rockville and Wheaton, The Washington, DC metro area. I have many specialty Airhead tools, some for older bikes than I have ever owned. I own an OTC press that I use to rebuild Airhead 5 speeds. Have all the micrometers and tools for such. Pullers and drifts for all Airhead work.

    Some used parts, 5 speeds, etc, may be available.

    PM me with what's needed for your project. Local only. No mail friendships.

    This is a long shot and maybe the wrong forum. I am looking for Timken setup bearings for an early Dana 44. I need to put shims in a new carrier and want to make sure I set them up right. Thanks.
