Exclamation chicagoland tech day april 3rd

I'll be hosting a Chicago tech day. We did one last fall at my place and it was great. Figure we will start wrenching at 8AM and go to about 5pm depending on how much needs to get done.

I have tools for the Doo and all the standard stuff for KLR work.
You can also do tires here and oil changes. I'll take care of disposing the oil but if your leaving old tires it will be $2.50 a tire to dump it.

please no surprise work, just let me know if your coming to get work done or you want to help wrench.. Also anyone is welcomed to just hangout and meet each other.

my address is 1664 richfield tr. Romeoville IL 60446

Tech Day in April

I got a new.....1994.....KLR 650 and need to do the Doo.....I live a ways away so I can't say at this time 100% fer sher....but I will get back to you. I hope a "maybe" is ok for now. I'll be riding from Chillicothe, IL.....just north of Peoria, so might be a great road trip. I still need to figure out what all I want to modify. It's pretty much stock with under 6000 miles. I need to order parts pretty soon tho. I will get back to you about this great opprotunity tho. Thanks. Mike

Hmm......
I'm off work that weekend, family in Florida, might be a great day fer a ride.
I'm two hrs from Romeoville roughly. One hour to Chi-town, 2 to get to the other side.
Maybe I'll mapquest the place. No work to do, but wanna meet n' greet, hang out,
and help where I can. Now that I can do the doo. lol Plenty of tire changes,
and all the carb mods too.

I still don't know for sure. I will definitely tell you if I can make it....Not just show up at your door-step........doo in hand......pitifully begging......nah, I'll let you know first. Sounds like a nice mix and lots of help. Thanks for the invite.

FATT, good to see tech days throughout North America. Be sure to let EagleMike know you are having a tech day. If you get in a tough spot and need help and call Mike then he would know who was calling.
