Front axle puller …

It is not easy to remove the front axle on the 1290 Super Adventure, so this puller is a handy tool.

It is installed permanently in the front axle by freezing the puller and heating the axle – and then drive the puller into the axle with a mallet.

You only have a few seconds before the heat is transferred between the parts and the puller is permanently fixed in the axle, so you need to work fast.

Coolant exchange …

I have been using Tomtom GPS devices for +10 years, but the new Garmin zumo XT is just lightyears ahead of the old Tomtom platform – so it is time for a change.

Installing the mounting plate and the Zumolock locking backplace is easy enough, but it is necessary to remove the headlight to hook up the power supply.

Clutch slave cylinder …

After 60.000 kms, the original clutch slave is seeping a little, and the reservoir needs to be refilled once in a while.

Oberon makes a better quality slave cylinder and a cnc milled base plate (the original one is plastic)
