Doo tools?

Trying to save a bit of money during these hard times. Was wondering if someone would let me use your Doo tools (puller, holder) i would be able to return them within one - two weeks. I am about to order the Eagle mike Doo and would rather not spend the extra cash Thanks Guys Jesse

The gentleman that sent me his free of charge will probably hook ya up when he sees this thread. We went below freezing and I kept the tools about a month. Felt bad about holding them so long but he was very cool about it.

I (being Cheap of course) went with just the doo and spring. No gaskets or the lever thingie. Worked out perfect. The bike only had 1244 miles on it and the gaskets were very reusable. Barely stuck at all.

Yeah, sit tight. You'll get your tools. Don't spend money you don't have. Lots of folks will hook you up, including the gentleman Cheap refers too, my guess.

Thanks guys i have been contacted and should be here soon, i think i might order the gaskets. My bike is an 06 with 4000 miles not sure what condition they will be in.

I was thinking about changing the clutch to, it hasn't slipped yet but feels weak. When i shift into first i can sometimes feel and hear clunk into gear.

My qustion is should i change the clutch at the same time, and do you have to drain the oil to change the clutch? thanks guys Jesse

OK, that torsion spring can be a bear to get on. Hate to say it, but try again. Mike's part is machined correctly, of that you can be sure. If the spring really won't go on, you can re-drill the hole to give the spring a bit less tension. Call Mike to confirm; he also may have some hints to getting that bugger on. I would wager he's done a few more doo jobs than anyone in the known universe.

As to the broken spring bit, ya gotta find it. Are you sure it's not in the vicinity of the doo? Drain the oil and look for it. Can you get a magnet up the drain hole and fish around a bit? It's worth the effort to find it; the havoc it can cause is significant. Hopefully there are others who can advise on how to find that thing.

Wish I could be more helpful.

the piece of spring is no where to be found, i sifted threw the oil and didnt find it, flushed the motor out with motor oil and it still didnt come out. this is the first oil change that i have done on the bike. i am thinking that it might have been broke before and the fella that owned it before flushed the piece down with the oil. i am going to advanced and get a magnet and see if i can find it up the oil drain. if not i think im just going to slap it back together.
