Cost?

That looks handy. How much would it cost?

Tool

Before he starts making any of these what do you think is a fair price? I have no idea. Im not even sure what it cost for the materials.

He's an old retired machinist who likes to work out in his shop. When I rebuilt my /2 I couldn't find one anywhere. I cut down a pair of needle nose pliers just enough to fit into the holes. When he said he could make one I went back out and re-torqued my swing arm with it. Worked great.

BMW tool kit

Isn't there a spanner in the tool kit that fits those pins?

I'll take one. What do you

I'll take one. What do you need from me?

BTW...what is the dimension across the flats? What socket will it fit into? I'm thinking socket since it would then fit on the torque wrench.

Tool

Let me do this. The friends name is Guy Young. Retired engineer. We live in Richmond VA. His email address is gbyoung2@gmail.com.

I have two of the tools and mine fits a 13/16 socket perfectly. I am assuming they are all the same. Shoot him an email if you're interested. I have nothing to do with the sales except passing the information around. The tool worked great when I set the torque on my R60/2 swing arm.
