I‘m with you. With the exception of some very expensive specialty tools most motorcycle jobs can be done by yourself for a fraction of the cost a dealer or shop would charge. As a bonus you now have new tools. But for me the best part is the knowledge you gain about your own motorcycle and the fact that you know you did the job right.Not like the time you did take your bike to the shop and they forgot to tighten the bolt to your ABS sensor causing it to fall out. Makes you wonder what else they forgot to tighten when they had your wheels off.With the experience of changing steering bearings on the Vstrom, I feel fairly conident approaching the FJR.
I'll probably go ahead and get a Dremel-type tool. I have so many tools already, but it's still way cheaper and more convenient than paying a dealer or independent shop to do the job. Also less chance of them breaking stuff by trying to cut corners/speed through the repair. I've had more than enough of that from the couple of times I had shops do things.
