Lets see your homemade tools, parts, ect.

Recommended Posts

Since I havn't had any money lately i've been making some of the things i wanted to buy. (frame guards and a skid plate) They actually turned out a lot better than i expected and they work, which is unlike other things i've made 🙂 If theres anybody else making parts or handy tools i'd like to see them. Thanks 🙂

I made a Lexan headlight cover to keep a rock from costing me $150

If that didn't work, it's in my garage

Very nice! I was expecting something a little less.

That is the Ballistic medium from www.dirt-bike-gear.com

I like it, but it is a little small without a backpack and not big enough to hold my tool kit, cellphone, and first aid kit.

I'm replacing it with one of the big Cordura bags.

don't worry about it, see you've been doing your homework, thanks for sharing, a tool is a tool, and all machines have to get worked on, regardless of shape, size or color, ...... made that huh?

this is a little more of a blue shade ...... after racking up a few hundred miles on the odo, it's quite the pain to reset. This little mod allows me to insert a long tool to help peel back the miles. I also can use my cordless drill and make short work of this tedious task, oh yeah ....... besides, who's hand can actually fit down in there?

Why are we cluttering an already cluttered forum?

There's already a post going on in the correct section, with the same exact title.

This was another resurrection... original post July '05

One of my more creative homebuilt tools....

Kawasaki makes a gear holding tool needed to remove and retorque the clutch on the Vulcan cruisers. This tool is over $150 and is special order.

A penny jammed into the gears works perfectly. The coin is softer than the gears and leaves no marks... and after torquing to 90ft/lbs, the penny now looks like >

You know, I just happen to save a couple of my old metal plates when installing a clutch kit last week. My plan was to spot weld them together and then weld a handle (similar to yours only to the actual plates). That way I'd have lots of contact spread around the perimeter.

I'll try to get over to a ThumperTDC's as I think he has a spot welder.

Great job on that! I'll post a pic when I get it done. In the mean time, here's something I banged out today (bullet cam protector):

sorry kid, I want to see what's a bit more specific to the color blue, (specifically my bike) not all the colors of the rainbow, and it cuts down on what I consider "clutter" and I don't have all day to go all over ...... if you find something somehwhere that also fits a blue bike, be sure to share it with us, thanks ........
