I talked with Dustjunkie and got the 6mm threaded rods from Ace Hardware. Those were too soft. I broke one off , bent some others, and pulled the threads off another. I finally gave up. Luckily, I live right and talked with a former KTM mechanic now working at the Honda dealer. He had the puller (in fact, a whole set) and loaned them to me.
I must be living right as it will only cost me a six'er of the new beer Miller Chill (said he wants to try it). Mechanical stuff sure is easier when you have the right tools.

BTW, the spring around the starter clutch was fubar'ed. I'd already bought a new starter clutch so that is in now. With a little welding on the fairing subframe, I may have a running 640 ADV by next week.
