Doo tools in PHX area needed ASAP!

I am in desperate need of the doo tools to disassemble my Alaska partners bike. We have found a lot of metal in his oil screen and suspect the doo spring, but need the tools ASAP. Can anyone help?

A 1 1/4 cresent wrench will work to hold the flywheel. An electric impact is perfect for removing the flyhwheel. You won't need the wrench if you use the impact. You will only need the wrench when you torque the flywheel back to spec. Now all you will need is the flywheel puller bolt. I bet Fred at could get you one pretty fast since he is located in Moab. They aren't that expensive either.

Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.

I know there are 3 or 4 sets in the valley here owned by guys on this forum and one other. I need it ASAP, like in the next day or so. We actually did the doo on this bike 3 months ago, but now need to take the left side apart to inspect.........

I'd loan you my tools, but Fred is probably faster.

You're probably going to need to dig deeper the oil pump and cam bearings. You really need to check them even if you find the source of the metal.

We got the tools from a local yesterday and tore into the bike. The doo spring and lever were fine. The front most balancer gear was not. LINKY. We will have to determine if further tear down is necessary. I guess we need to know the route of oil flow, and take a good look to see if the stuff could get past the screen and head north. A good flushing of the case and probing around with a magnet may have to do......
