Tucson Area Tool Exchange
This thread is for the sharing of tools (especially specialized ones).
If you have tools and or facilities, and would be willing to share either, please post up! It would be useful if you posted the following information
A)A list of tools that you have (an example would be a 30mm socket, or tire irons)
B)A list of facilities that you have (an example would be a tire changing machine or a bike lift)
C)A list of skills that you would be willing to share (such as how to change a tire by hand, or how to do an oil change)
D)Your general location. It doesn't have to be an address, but the more specific the better (Broadway and Kolb is a lot better then "Tucson")
If you want a tool/service, just look through the thread and PM a person that has it, and you can make arrangements.
I would like to keep the thread just to a listing, so you can find information quickly rather then sifting through 3 pages of "does anybody have this?!"
It would be a general courtesy to return the tools at least in the same cleanliness, if not cleaner. Please don't return tools all greasy and oily, otherwise people aren't going to want to loan out their tools to anybody.
So, if you have tools, please post!

I'm in southeast tucson, I know upholstery, welding, fabrication, custom bodywork, and some other stuff.
I'm happy to help.
I am located at Pantano and 5th, Far Horizons Tucson Village (a blue hair RV park.) Covered, concrete carport. Until late April (when most of the blue hairs go home) working on more than one bike at a time is no-go. Summer rules are a lot looser than winter ones.
Tools, all the usual suspects sockets, ratchets, breaker bars (with a cheater pipe,) a real good torque wrench. Hammers. 5hp compressor, pneumatic tools (ratchet, impact, drill, cutoff wheels, nailers, a coupla spray guns w/regulator.) Some sockets that are larger than the usual candidates--30 mm deep wall, impact socket for GM hub nuts, 1 1/8, 1 1/4 sockets. 1/4 1/2 3/8 drive sockets, extensions, wobblers, and drives.
Got a broomstick for taking fork legs apart, necessary to keep things form spinning inside the leg.
M/cycle jack, tire spoons, valve remover tool. Many automotive jacks (bottle and floor jacks.) Cheep multi meter from HF, digital & dial micrometers, and a mic for measuring runout (but no attachments or frames.) Some feeler gauges, wire gauges for spark plugs.
Hobart handler MIG welder (currently even have gas.) Grinders, pedestal grinder one side is stone, the other is a wire wheel. 1/2 in drive drill. Drill press (fairly good sized) various sized drills of various qualities. Ox/acetylene torch setup with small tanks (no gas, tho,) kinda the HVAC/Roofer special. Anyone who can afford to fill the bottles can borrow it.
I have manuals for the 08 & later KLR, DR 650 (95 & earllier.) If I can ever get into my old hard drive, I have manuals for later DR 650 and earlier KLR.
I have a single bike, small, very light trailer. The trailer lights work most of the time. & a Chevy Lumina with a trailer hitch.
In my 'useless' tool box, a valve spring compressor, piston ring compressor, some larger hones, brake spring tool, induction timing light w/variable advance. McPherson strut spring compressors. Easy outs. Some helicoil stuff. An air pop riveter. An oversized pop riveter. Cheep taps and dies from HF. A/C vacuum pump (electric.)
The usual rules about cleaning up, catching fluids, and recycling parts/fluids apply.
Big-ass hammer, + various other beating devices.
And a few other things too.
I've got bicycle tools (and 20+ years of know-how)
Not so much in the MC specific stuff cept for 1150 and 1200 boxer oil filter wrenches
I have a shed full of tools with which I've built/maintained motorcycles, cars, boats, airplanes, and regular around-home stuff. I also have a motorcycle lift. Tanque Verde/ Sabino Canyon part of town.
I need to do a brake job on my ancient and decrepit motor home. Does anyone have a good 1/2 drive air impact I can borrow?
Tapered alum damper-rod holder
Flywheel puller(s) for DR650
Ironwood & Lloyd Bush
All the standard junk/hand tools... also have welders, plasma cutter, and general know how to hack junk together!
..and for the KLR folks, I have the Doo Tools! :evil
Tucson Area. Tire machine needed
Anyone in Tucson have a tire machine that we could use as we ride through to Mexico.
We will be arriving September 25 into North Tucson, and will need to one tire on a KTM 990 and maybe 2 on F800 GS.
Sunday Late or Monday . Any help would be appreciated!
Otherwise if you want a machine, probably just take it to a shop, you could try zmw or onanymoto, I'm sure they'll have tires and they have a tire machine.
I have lots of tools. Mostly METRIC ............ I used to work in a bike shop. I have fork seal drivers, carb sync'ing gauges. Air tools and a big compressor. I am not big on loaning out tools, but would rather help you fix it myself. A friend in need is a friend in deed.
