Tappet Adjustment Tool
JIMS® Tappet Adjustment Tool
Tappet adjustments made easy by Hiro Koiso. This patent pending hand tool simplifies the way to verify proper tappet adjustment. After adjusting the tappet, simply insert the tip of this tool under the hydraulic unit retaining clip, above the pushrod seat. Similar to a "Go No-Go Gauge", if the tip doesn't fit between the clip and the pushrod seat OR if there is up and down end play, then the tappet is out of adjustment. Only when the tip fits nicely with no end play is the tappet properly adjusted.

JIMS Vacuum Fed Fork Filling Too
JIMS® Vacuum Fed Fork Filling Tool
Changing the fork fluid on models with fairings can be intimidating and take hours. This patent pending tool will eliminate the need to remove the fairing on all touring bikes to change the fork oil. It's like magic. With this tool it should take about 30 minutes to perform the service compared to 2.2 hours. To drain the fluid, simply insert the tapered fitting into the drain hole and create a vacuum using a standard Mityvan hand pump. Once you reach approximately 23 lbs. of vacuum pressure, rotate the valve and instantly the vacuum will draw the pre-measured amount of fork fluid into the fork tube. This tool is designed to be used in conjunction with a Mityvac tool, which is available separately.
No. 740 - Use on all common damper tube type fork assemblies. (Not for use on motorcycles using cartridge type forks or inverted fork assemblies.
