I'm more than willing to come watch and offer unsolicited advice that won't help.

I did manage to break the loaner (from advance auto) ball joint tool. Not sure what that's going to cost me yet.... friggen 12 year as 255k mile ball joints where in TIGHT!

Got an air hammer? They make a ball joint attachment for them that works great.

Unless you're talking about BJ press kit, at which point I can't help you there. I know a guy close by with a 20 ton press if needed.

I'll be getting some backyard practice on the Freeride and some more seat time on the CB :thumbup:
Just like yesterday. Being semi-retired is fun :deal:

Also, just put the center stand on the CB, fixin' to mount up TKCs :cheers:
Oh yeah I need to buy some more beer :freakey:
I'm completely ready to be full on retired but I've got about 7 years left. I may do semi-retirement (or maybe do some kind of volunteer something or other).

A friend of mine went from a CB to the africa twin. I need to ask him how he's liking the big bike. I wouldn't mind having a CB myself but I may dump a street bike or two to get a trials bike so a CB won't be happening any time soon (if anyone happens to want to trade a trials bike for a kawi versys I'm game).

I've got a 16x rivet gun from my aircraft maintenance days. I used it for bucking 1/4" and larger stainless and monel rivets, it'll do some damage! I actually broke the tool(power service? Whatever advances brand is) installing the new ball joints. It may have been a little abused before I got to it.

I do love me some horrible freight though, I bought their 20 ton press a couple months ago when they had a sale going. My mom uses it to crack walnuts! :lol2:

Last time I borrowed a power steering pulley puller it was broken when I got it. You been using it?

I saw that press on sale & wanted it but never made it up there.

Don't worry, the press routinely goes on sale for $129 if you get their coupon magazine in the mail.
