    None. My extended warranty & BMW takes care of that issue if I had it. All the other maintenance I'll do myself. I don't have a bike stand Yinzer...simple.

    I venture to say ANY tool that is a necessity is special...lol. Otherwise all we'd need is a hammer and a flathead to fix our bikes!

    There is not a SINGLE bike or manufacturer which doesn't require special tools. Be they carb sync tools, diagnostic computers, calibration tools for sensors, etc.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if a certain #7 ended up there on the roster next week.

    If you venture away from home, you might find yourself needing to do a roadside repair at some point.

    On a normal bike, I can buy wheel bearings at any NAPA auto and put them in with a long screwdriver and a rock.

    I love the irony that we both posted the same thing trying to make opposite points.

    I think you might need to work on more Nippon bikes.

    I would not be using that example if I have not done it multiple times. Napa has bearings for most bikes, in stock. You just have to know what to ask for.

    True story.
    I once replaced wheel bearings in a GasGas by getting some from a snowmobile slider system. Honest to goodness the only tools I had was an adjustable wrench, a flat blade screwdriver and a rock.
    Got ‘er did. Rode the next day.
    Can a Beemer do that?

    Stillers is dead, no point in taking him on. I doubt he's yinzer-approved, need to win is not worth the publicity. I think that Duck kid is better than smashed head guy. He can get them to a 6-10 season

    I think the ‘distraction’ of all of it would make for a nice distraction from a 6-10 season. Plus, the Rooney Rule needs a cousin to graze with in the pasture. Just a hunch.
