Default Specialty Tool Loaner Program

I was thinking about creating a thread with a list of specialty tools that people would be willing to loan out to fellow CR members. You break it you buy it policy would apply. We are not talking screw drivers and hammers but more like chain tool kits, seal drivers, suspension tools, etc. Tools that you may only use a handful of times per year or ones that you would like to have access to but are just too cheap. If we have enough interest, we could make it a sticky and others could duplicate the idea by region. Let me know what you think. So far I can add to the list a Blind Hole Bearing Puller. I bought it this week to pull out and replace the wheel bearings on the DR650. It will fit internal bearing diameters from 3/8" to 1.5".

David, you might want to invest in a "T" pretty quickly...

Not sure I have anything to add to the list, but I think this is a great idea. I do have an electric pressure washer good after those really muddy off road rides.

I could use a Nutsert metric install tool to reset or install a new nutsert on my Husky.

Tool, Purpose, Contact

Blind Hole Bearing Puller, wheel bearing removal, Wanderer
Electric Pressure Washer, clean stuff up, ChadInc

If anyone wants to add to the list, just quote this message, add your tool and delete the [quote] formatting. That way, the updated list will include everything and will eliminate the need to scroll through all the post.
