Anyone here have a drill-press that can help me drill ~12 bolts for safety wiring?

I can buy the bits (if you tell me what to get).

Can you take it to Norman? I bet they'd do it for next to nothing.

If you're in a bind, I've got a vice, a power drill, and a fairly steady hand... [laugh]

That's not really up their alley. They *could* do it... and a shop could do it. I was looking to save some money.

Tigre - Did you get your holes drilled? Ifyer still lookin', I've got a drill press and a cross-slide vise, but I don't have one of the fancy drilling jigs. I'm in Mill Valley up in Marin. (And yes, Drill Press Ownership is an explicit reason for why I live in suburbia.)

I've got a volunteer to help -- I just need to get my bike back so I can mark the bolts and pull them off.

Hopefully it'll be back by Saturday -- I'll call Desmoto tomorrow and check. They told me they were going to start with the valves today.

I just saw your bike at Desmoto while I dropped off DESMOQ. The exhaust is back on, but it was parked in the same place it was when I saw it last week sans exhaust...right next to Corbino's bike. That 749 is a nice-looking ride...can't wait to see the Tigre livery on it.

Things are moving forward on the bike. Should be ready (sans paint, but with orange seat) for January 23.

Cheers,
Tigre
