Have been cleaning up a couple of SR500 heads. Ready for porting, new valves and rocker shaft bushing. Needed to remove the shafts. Rooted around in the odds’n’sods bin.

  • 2 x pieces 6mm threaded rod
  • 1 x long open ended 6mm joiner
  • 2 x 6mm nuts
  • 1 x 6mm dome nut
  • 12 x large 6.5mm washers
  • 1 x piece duct tape

5 minutes. No cutting. A perfectly good 6mm slide hammer.
