  1. Oops, sorry I drug out a better light. Better picture of jack stand:
  2. I went crazy locked up in my shop the last couple of weeks with all this rain we are getting here in East Texas. I mounted spoon and shift lever on left passenger peg. Mounted clutch lever to 24 mm wrench on left swingarm. Mounted on right passenger peg: a spoon, brake lever, and Enduro Star jack stand. The stand I put is a long 1/2” drill bit tube, then put that in a 5/8” heater hose. The little flat Allen head bolts in the passenger peg pivot holes are spares for my top luggage rack. I also mounted my Motion Pro 24mm/spoon to the rear brake line clamps. The only thing I haven’t mounted, and frankly I’m not sure I would need to, is my spare rear brake pedal. I want to get all that out of my bags to allow me to carry more beans & coffee for camping trips. Dog

    TMD rear chain guide

    Thanks 6days, what I’m asking is which of the two I posted would be the better choice.

    TMD rear chain guide

    I need to replace my factory rub block and thought I might as well do an upgrade to the TM Designworks. Is anyone familiar with them? I’m looking at two they offer, the “Factory Edition 2” and the “OEM Style “ Which would give the longer life on my DRZ400S for moderate trails and up to 70 mph highway speeds? thanks - Dog

    Motion-Pro spoon/axle wrench toughness?

    The story did state that the nut was over torqued at the shop. I wouldn’t doubt they used a cheater pipe that caused a stress riser in the same area on both the aluminum ones. I thought the socket part would brake first, like on the smaller one. Great input, Thanks Dog
  7. I wasn’t very confident I could put my trust in an aluminum wrench until tonight. This was my first time to use it. After adjusting my chain with it and getting very close with the Army Boot torque (missed it on lose side very little against my torque wrench) setting of 72.5 lbs. I feel much better about only carrying just it, for my axle nuts. I had cut down an old Craftsman 24 mm and mounted it to my swing-arm chain-guard tabs, but it is heavy compared to the Motion Pro. How much have you used yours, and has anyone ever heard of one having a failure? thanks - Dog
  8. I was in the USN & I was at the Possum Kingdom rally and the M/C Camping & Adventure Show.

    EBC clutch hub tool BS

    Atolduso, I would call them but they are in the UK. I guess I’ll have to email them. Matt, exactly I’ve never seen anything that bad. A real pain in the ...... Dog
  10. I found a new place for the spoons. The left side is temporary (need more hose clamps). I’m going back to just wrench on the swing arm. bucketlist, the method to my madness is to keep some weight low and out of my bags. I have a 1/4” ratchet set handy in a small grenade pouch to take off the tire tools or check bolt tightness. Dog

    EBC clutch hub tool BS

    Well, I finally got the crap off after another 2 hours work. I put it in very strong thinner and also acetone (I forgot to try gasoline) I had to scrap every cog with my knife and wire brush it by hand with a stainless steel brush. It took me longer to work on the tool than it did to install the kick starter kit. Needless to say, I not to happy with EBC💩 Dog

    Erik, I did cut the plastic all the way around inside and outside hoping it would just pop off, but to no avail. I am going to try Acetone and see if it will melt it off. Kent
  13. Rhinoracer, I wished I had seen your pictures before I cut my wrench. I like the way you formed the spoon on one end, good idea. How did you do that? Did you hammer it out, or just grinder city? Kent

    Whoever at EBC thought shrink wrap was a good idea needs to pull it off one of the tools and see how he likes it then. It is in every nook, cranny & cog and comes off in tiny pieces. I don’t want any of it to get in my motor. I’ve been trying to get the crap off for 45 minutes and stopped to vent. I thought about putting in my bead-blast cabinet or pouring gas on it then light it off. Anyone got any better ideas? Dog
