Same tool that's been around for years. And the price has gone up . I bought mine from UE with the tank for around $25.00...Its worth whatever the cost because it makes the ring removal very easy and quick. thanks for the info I'm sure that a lot of people are wondering where to buy the tool other than from the dealer for about $100....or more . from time to time they are available here in the classified section.

A strap wrench works pretty well... Probably could make one out of a coffee can in about 5 minutes as well. :D

Coffee cans are a lot cheaper. Here is a LINK on how to make a tool.
Attached is a ready made template you can use.

The coffee can will last about 5 removals and installs before the metal starts to get fatigued.

a friend made one out of a worn out hole saw of the proper size and i have heard of making one out of a piece of pvc but for 40 dollars a tool that you can use forever is a bargain when you consider the time you spend rigging something..

The cheapest and easiest is the strap wrench. I got 2 for $4.99 at harbor freight and it works flawlessly!! Cant beat that with a stick. Also you can use it while it (tank) is in the
bike as well.
