    Flywheel and clutch holding tool - it's just a re-purposed filter strap wrench and I have to say that it works a treat in conjunction with an electric impact driver

    Used it with an M16 1.5P bolt to remove the flywheel from the Fizzer engine as well as loosening the clutch nut.

    So a 650 ninja has steerings bearings that don't protrude from the frame's stem, just 2 small recesses to be able to knock them out. But the problem is you can't use a screwdriver or straight chisel, you need a special chisel with a crooked point. Or bend an old screwdriver that has its point ground to fit. I recommend the chisel as the modified screwdriver has a bit of flex and bounce, but beggars can't be choosers.

    How come you got Noah's welder @ShaneP :D
    That thing must weigh a ton.. imagine what you could sell it for in terms of the copper inside it. :)

    That's not old, my dad's first arc welder in 1950 was an ex army wooden box 32 volt one. Think I still have the instruction book somewhere.

    This is one if the best buys I have made, they are $300-400 at a Man's Toyshop, but I got mine secondhand for $100. Not the bike (which was $100 with a mc19, too), the hydraulic platform
    IMG_20181116_175034.jpg
    It lifts a good height, has wheels, simple foot operations. For a road bike, get a piece or 200mm C-section (which doubles as a ramp) and the wheels go on the channel while the kickstand goes on the platform. Bam! Adjustable-height workbench for your bike!

    I happened across this in the SOHC UK forum.. this guy in the USA built himself a really nice little service table for his bikes..
    It is one of the better home made ones I have seen..

    Gudgeon pin wouldn't come out easily... IMG_20181126_163535.jpg
    The secret is the zxr250 sliding frame mount spacer, which just happened to be the right size for a kdx200 wrist pin.

    You need to put a clean rag into the crankcase opening to prevent bits getting dropped into the crank.

    The zero end and the big moveable leg sit on the base of the carby and then little L shape leg is used to set the float height

    Built this this afternoon to change seals on some USD forks.
    20x20x1.6 RHS and 25x25x1.6 RHS, a piece of 12mm threaded rod and nuts, some old bolts and a piece of 16x5 flat bar.

    Took a while to work out how to use it, but still don't get the spike. But I like it, might show my mechanic.

    Oh, that's the other part. I thought you were using it to load the spring to undo the dampener rod bolt at the bottom. The yz doesn't have a long preload tube, so the spanners fit between the spring coils from memory.
