THE TOOL COUNTER:


TOOL RENTALS:

Typically, when performing very infrequent or one-time tasks, it is not cost-efficient to purchase all of the special tools you’ll need to perform the task just for your one bike. Don’t get us wrong, though: you do need to use the proper tool(s) for the job to get proper results! It’s just that these special tools can really eat into your maintenance and rebuild budget.

Our TOOL RENTAL PROGRAM allows you to have access to those special tools for an affordable rental rate, thus minimizing your investment and maximizing your results.

Here’s how it works: you “order” the tool(s) that you’ll need and pay the regular retail price (and shipping) for the tool. The tool(s) are then shipped to you just as a regular order, and we’ll note the date that the tools shipped to you. You then use the tools, taking whatever amount of time you need. Then, return the tool(s) to us, prepaid, and we’ll then refund you the full tool price minus your “time rented” fee.

Remember, your “time rented” fee is calculated from the day that we ship the tool until the day that the tool is received back to us from you (not the day that you ship it back). We receive incoming shipments 5 days a week, so if a tool is “returned” to us via the Post Office on a Saturday, it will be the following non-holiday Monday that we “receive” the tool back.

The only other restriction is that tools returned to us broken, damaged, inoperable, modified, or worn out in any way will not be accepted back, and will be returned to you (with additional shipping costs to apply) and no refund or credit issued. Thus we recommend that:

a) you treat rental tools as if you own them, since you will if you don’t treat them in a professional manner!

b) when you ship the tools to us, you insure them at their full value against any loss or damage during shipment. Claims for loss or damage against the carrier is the responsibility of the shipper (that’s you), not the recipient (that’s us). And since the “travel time” both to and from you is counted as “rental time”, we strongly suggest that you opt for the priority mail shipping option, as this will minimize the “travel time” and will typically reduce your overall cost.

c) you will need to provide us with the Package Tracking Service (“delivery confirmation” number) for your return shipment of the tool to us so we may document the return date to us.

Although these rules may seem strict, we hope you can understand the reality of the need to put such restrictions on the long-distance rental and use of these tools.


Please also note that, in the case of some tools ---- due to either their low retail price and/or the cost of return shipping ---- that it may not make sense to rent such tools for any extended period of time…….in other words, such tools only make sense to “rent” if you do so only when you are immediately prepared to use them (within a day or so of receipt of the tool) and have the ability to return the tool(s) to use immediately after you have finished using them. The most practical plan is to rent such tools associated with a specific task that you’ll be doing…..such as a fork rebuild….at the same time you are purchasing your fork rebuild parts. In this manner, the tools will be shipped to you with almost minimal shipping charges (they’ll ride with your other parts that you’ve ordered), so at least some of the cost of the tool rental will be absorbed in your regular parts order.


REVIEW: Tool Rental Terms and Conditions:

- you’ll pay the full price of the tool in advance….just like you were ordering it for “keeps”….and get refunded/credited when it is returned to us.

- the tool must be returned in working order or you have bought the tool! All of our tools are inspected to insure they are in proper operating condition before leaving our shop.

- the tool rental rate starts as of the day that we ship the too to youl, and ends on the day that we receive the tool back. Yes, this does mean that you are paying the rental rate while the tool is in transit. This is why small-dollar-value tools may not be a good idea to rent……..it may be more cost-effective for you to simply purchase the tool.


EXAMPLE:

You will be ordering and converting your bike from the stock oil filter system to our spin-on filter conversion system. You order the spin-on kit along with the tools needed to do the job:

HCP10299 Aftermarket deep-drive 30mm SOCKET, 1/2-drive thin-wall style that will work properly with the HCP1284 spin-on oil filter adapter kit that we offer. Because of the very close tolerances between the outside faces of the nut and the adapter plate recess, you'll need a very thin-wall socket to tighten this nut with. Chrome-plated, 12-point, 1-/2" drive.
Purchase Price: $ 39.95
Rental Rate: $ 1.25 per day

HCP22025 Aftermarket standard depth 32mm SOCKET, used to remove the special oil filter union bolt used on all XJ550 models, and on all factory-equipped oil-cooler systems used on 1984-85 FJ600, XJ650 Turbo, and XJ900 models. Chrome-plated, 6-point, 1/2" drive.
Purchase Price: $ 16.95
Rental Rate: $ 0.75 per day

HCP10300 Aftermarket 3/8"-to-1/2" DRIVE ADAPTER. For use with the HCP10298, HCP10299, HCP10530, HCP11336, HCP22025, or the HCP22947 sockets, and the 10mm and 12mm HCP10302 stud extractors included in the HCP10301 tool kit. Most people have the standard 3/8" drive ratchet wrenches in their tool kits already, and the larger 1/2" drive sockets can be used with those ratchets with this converter/adapter. Chrome-plated, 1/2" male drive, 3/8" female receiver.
Purchase Price:$ 12.95
Rental Rate: $ 0.25 per day when any of the 1/2” drive sockets above are also rented.


Your parts ship on the 11th, you receive them on the 14th, you do the install on the 16th, and get the rental tools into the mail back to us on the 17th. The rental tools are received by us on the 20th.

Thus you have 9 days (the 11th thru the 20th) worth of tool rental on each item.


When you initially rented the tools, you paid us:

HCP10299 Socket $ 39.95
HCP22025 Socket $ 16.95
HCP10300 Socket $ 12.95

Total: $ 69.85


We received the returned the tools 9 days after you received them:

HCP10299 Socket 9 days x $ 1.25 per day = $ 11.25 rental fee
HCP22025 Socket 9 days x $ 0.75 per day = $ 6.75 rental fee
HCP10300 Socket 9 days x $ 0.25 per day = $ 2.25 rental fee

Total rental fees: $ 20.25


You will be credited/refunded:

$ 69.85 initial price minus $ 20.25 rental fee =
$ 49.60 credited or refunded

Black millimeter markings on the measurement tube allow you to easily determine the fuel level with respect to the bowl-to-body reference point. For use on all XJ models with fuel bowl drain nipples (all models with Hitachi carbs and XJ600 Seca II, XJ1100, and XS1100 models with Mikuni carbs, and all other Mikuni carbs using our HCP26218 adapter tool or the HCP8494 drain outlet nipples).

HCP4 Professional quality sliding-arm FLOAT HEIGHT GAUGE is specifically designed for measuring float heights and features a sliding arm that allows you to accurately measure the distance from the carb body base to any point on the float itself (normally to the top or bottom edge of the float, when the needle is in its "just-barely-closed" position) and then apply this exact same setting to the other carbs. A great time saver for this technically simple, but very time-consuming task.

A complete variety of 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, and 18mm adapter fittings and extensions hoses allows for maximum flexibility and ease of use on all types of engines. Comes in a handy plastic storage case, with a user guide, and a field service kit.

Rental Rate: $ 4.95 per day

HCP17850 Aftermarket PROFESSIONAL PRESSURE LEAKDOWN TESTER KIT......this versatile, affordably-priced, accurate set contains everything you'll need to check the "health" of those four holes: gauge head, regulator valve, permanently and a set of extension hoses with 10mm, 12mm, and 14mm fittings for use on all types of 4-stroke engines. Comes in a handy plastic storage case with a user guide. NOTE: requires the use of an air compressor for use.
Purchase Price: $ 159.95
Rental Rate: $ 4.95 per day


dd2) Aftermarket camshaft CHAIN BREAKER AND RIVETER TOOLS, needed to properly break or rivet a master link onto original or replacement cam chains.

HCP9203 Aftermarket camshaft or drive CHAIN BREAKER AND RIVETER TOOL SET, comes with a complete set of 3 different size tips, press plates, all contained within a durable plastic case. A professional quality tool designed for shop use.
Purchase Price: $ 109.95
Rental Rate: $ 5.95 per day


HCP10181 Aftermarket VALVE SPRING COMPRESSOR TOOL SET, comes with 5 different size adapters to allow use on all XJ-series engines, including the Maxim-X type multi-valve engines. NOTE: although this screw-type compressor tool comes with five different-sized retainer disc "adapters", you may find that none of the specific adapter sizes fits your valve spring retainers "perfectly". However, you merely need to select the size adapter that most closely fits the retainer size on your engine (never bigger, always smaller than the O.D. of the retainer disc) and use that adapter carefully (so it does not "slip" or "walk off" the edge of the retainer disc as you are applying pressure, as you DO NOT under any circumstances want it to "walk-over" the edge of the retainer and then scar the lifter bucket bore!).

Although the OEM sized adapters fit the retainer discs "perfectly" (and therefore do not pose this "walking and potential scarring of the lifter bucket bore" threat), the huge difference in price between the OEM tools listed above and this complete, high-quality compressor tool set makes it worthy of purchasing, as long as you are careful in its use. Our experience shows that the 30mm adapter will fit the retainer discs very well (or exactly on some models) on the 550-1100 engines (except the 700-X and 750-X water-cooled models). The "X" motors will use the 19mm adapter; but it will not fit the retainer perfectly, but is the closest practical size. Comes in a handy plastic storage case.
Purchase Price: $ 59.95
Rental Rate: $ 2.95 per day


HCP27430 Aftermarket engine DOWEL PIN PULLER tool kit………what a great little tool to have on hand. Those dowel pins or collars are everywhere on these engines: cylinder heard-to-jugs, jugs-to-upper crankcase, side covers-to-crankcase, crankcase lower-to-upper section, and I’m probably forgetting a few. After time and moisture do their trick, those pins can get stuck….really stuck. And though vise grips (and penetrating oil, and heat, and a bigger hammer…) might work on some of them, these tools make for a quick, easy, and safe extraction. Special split collects fit snugly down over the protruding section of the pin, and with the torque bar or a slide hammer attachment tool, you’ll easily twist or yank them right out! Includes 5 different size collects, which are the correct size to attack almost every pin or collar on these engines. Each;

HCP23533 Surface measuring PRECISION STRAIGHTEDGE. This 18” straightedge is used by professional engine builders / machine shops for measuring any warpage in flat surfaces. We recommend the purchase of our HCP6383 feeler gauges to be used with this straightedge. Comes with a usage guide and warpage specifications for all XJ cylinder heads. NOTE: although Yamaha does not specify doing so, we also suggest that you measure the mating surface of the cylinder jugs in the same manner as you would with the heads, and apply the same criteria and warpage specifications and remedies to them..

Supplied with clamp ring compressor tool and 4 clamping rings (one each of 4 different sizes) which will allow use on all XJ- and XS-series engine sizes. Comes with a storage case. Since the 4-cylinder Yammy motors require placing 2 pistons into the jugs at a time, you will need 2 of these tool kits to accommodate your rebuild. Each tool set:

HCP10543 Aftermarket clutch drum HOLDER TOOL. In order to install the clutch drum retaining nut HCP3204 above, you have to lock the clutch drum and prevent it from turning while the nut is torqued.

Light-duty design is not recommended for shop use, but it works just fine for periodic (individual) use. Fits all XJ550, XJ650, XJ700, XJ750, and XJ900 models.

Body and Frame Tools:

HCP27621 Aftermarket seat strap rivet CLINCHER TOOL, used to splay the end of the clinch rivet and secure it tightly. Although it’s not absolutely necessary to use this tool to splay the rivet tip, it sure makes the job easier (and prevents you from ruining a bunch of rivets as you practice your technique!). If you’re going to have your strap “rebuilt” by a trim (upholstery) shop, then they probably already have a version of this tool (but you should ask them first). This tool is available for rental, since you probably only need to use it once in your life. For use with the HCP16598 clinch rivet above.
