Default Wisconsin Tech Day

I've been looking for a tech day within a few hours of Madison, WI. Does anyone know of one coming up?

Bump. I'm interested in doing the doo. Maybe as things melt we can find someone in between Madison and Milwaukee to host? I'm in Menomonee Falls.

Anybody in the area have the tools and knowledge? I suppose I could host. Otherwise I'll just get the kit with tools. Looks like it would be simple enough to do, but a little moral support always helps!

I'm in Greenfield (suburb of Milwaukee). I have tools and a ride-on lift. Let me know what you think . . .

Great! Is the lift portable, or would you be willing to host? Also, do you're tools include doo tools. I need to know whether I should order the doo tools along with the kit.

I have a portable non ride on lift, and a decent tool set, but not the special kit for the doo. I am in an appartment, so me hosting is useless.

I could host . . .
(The lift is not very portable)
I DO NOT have specialized Doohicky tools.

The first week in May does not look good; I'm out of town. Otherwise evenings or weekends might work. Let me know what you guys think.

Alright. If nobody chimes in who has the tools to loan, I'll go ahead and order the tools along with the rotor bolt and doo tomorrow. So if you're out there with doo tools to let us borrow, please speak up. Hopefully the doo won't be on backorder.

I ordered the doo and tools from Arrowhead. He said the doo was on backorder. He was guessing about two weeks. Then three days to receive after shipment. Everyone interested in getting this done should get their order in soon!

I live near Elgin, IL but often ride up into WI in the weekend. Was just up in Burlington today. I would be interested if the timing works out for me. I will check back here for the date. I have a 2007 and would like to do the doo.

I'll post when I get the e-mail from Arrowhead that the parts have shipped. Then we can start talking about time and place. Does everyone else interested already have the doo or on order?

I won't be doing the Doo, but I have an oversize rotor kit I'll be installing. I also have a portable lift in addition to the ride-on lift. I can also obtain a third portable lift if needed. We can work on several bikes at the same time.

I'll have refreshments onhand for those attending. I think you'll enjoy the facility!

I'm going to enjoy seeing how other folks have outfitted their KLRs. Be warned, there may be a DR650 or two in attendance . . .

Sounds like a good time! Hopefully Fred is right on his guess that the Doo and tools will ship next week. I'll let you know when I get the word and we can figure out a date.
