    I’m in Las Vegas and have enough tools to fix most bikes. I used to belong to BMWMOA and they have an anonymous book which lists locations, tools, space etc. Anything like that here?

    Looking for a Triumph tool #T3880103
    I’m doing a tank protection kit #A9780062 for my ‘18 Triumph Tiger 800 XRx.
    A Triumph tool #T3880103 is required to loosen then torque the “Frame Adjusters” to 3 nm.

    You can try and make one from a chisel. Not mine, but I found it on the Triumph Rat forum.

    I would cut down the length so it would be a bit easier to use. It would also allow you to put a socket on your torque wrench that matches the size of the chisel so you could torque everything back correctly.

    Looks like (as I had thought) a way old tie-rod end adjuster, which I have several of.
    Really do appreciate your response and if I don’t have the right tool I’m definitely going with your info

    I just found this link...

    I have a No-Mar tire changer. Just order tires and have them shipped to my address. Ride your bike over, or remove the wheels and throw them in your cage, and we'll get them changed.

    I also have a number of specialty tools for the R1200xx LC. Come on over and we'll do a tech day on the valves and cams.

    Please PM me in advance for availability (me and the tools) and address.

    In my opinion, you can't put a price on not only good quality tools but the right tools for the job for a bike tool kit.
    All the space and weight saving in the world won't mean anything when you can't fix the problem you're having trail side kilometres away from help.
    I've built my two bikes with bolt kits that allow me to carry a minimum of tools for a wide variety of jobs. Personally I reckon that's the way to go.

    I’ve got a heated shop near Davenport, IA that I’d be happy to share with anyone needing a good space to work on their bike. Have plenty of tools but not much specialty stuff. Room to throw your tent on the floor if you’re passing through or have a project that’ll take more than one day.

    I'm not sure if this is the correct thread, but I'll start here.

    I am looking for the timing chain riveting tool for the KTM RFS engine.
    KTM Part number: 59029020000

    I'd prefer to buy used from someone who no longer need theirs.
