    Hex head DYI library controversy!!

    THERE IS NO CONTROVERSY (I only used that title because bad news draws more attention than good news) Sorry!


    I spent some time yesterday looking at theHexhead DYI library posts and I must say, thanks for the great job you guys did!! The step by step pictures and instructions are outstanding.

    I am pretty confortable wrenching on my cars (even when they are newer) but for some reason I was reluctant to touch my bike with anything other than a sponge.

    But the details and pictures really demistified this situation. My most recent task was changing my tires. Yeah I know pretty low tech and easy... I wanted to save a few bucks by removing the wheels from the bike. After looking over the post in the library I got motivated. Both wheels were off without insident in one hour (extra time was spent expaining every step and why to my 7 years old son plus he got to turn the wrench a few times too).

    I know that I will also do the brake pads and fluid change, final drive, trans and air filter when required.

    I am hoping that a few people (at least 10) will thank these guys for the stellar work! I'll start.

    I concur. Read my previous posts from last night and this morning's project.

    I seriously could not begin to work on my bike without this stuff. It's been an awesome learning experience.

    It is always nice to have a second opinion available when there is just a hint of doubt. Thanks guys!
