want to add to my previous list, like how to take off an RT plastic tank.
Much different than a GS.
changing the light bulbs up front.
replacing the RT windshields and/or it's motor.
how to get behind the dashboard.
Pehaps you should split the DVD between the GS and the others like the S's, R and RT.

While alot of your current DVD helps there are things needed on a non GS bike that are not covered.

Good point. I wonder if there is enough differences to make it worth while? Maybe a Repair DVD that has the RT and the R specific differences and items?

You could shanghai an owner of each and go thru the differences.

I know you said a DVD, but I would like to see a roadside repair/troubleshooting/diagnostic guide (laminated)

E Version

It would be great to have a E Version prepared for an iPad or Android. This would help us DVD challenged people.
Your DVD's have been very helpful and I appreciate the time and effort you've put into them. When I'm on a road trip the DVD's are really not available. I've converted them to a MP4 format and I'm sure there are many more of us Inmates would appreciate this format for future and past Video's.

Jim,

I bought your DVD for my '10 RT and it did make things go very smoothly. At the same time, I've done many of the farkles I've added (risers, guards, stereo upgrades, etc) in spite of the documentation the vendor included ...

I'd be willing to reverse some of these and re-do them to help with the content. I think there's a market, and I think some of the accessory vendors would be smart to include segments with their products to aid people in installing them...

The one thing that would make the DVD easier for me would be a checklist of the steps so I knew I didn't miss anything. I made up for it by taking notes, still missed a step or two, reviewed the DVD and got it right the second time :)

Not a bad idea. Let me think on that one.

Thanks,

I really want to do this, but have yet to come up with a cost effective secure way to do this that didn't basically turn it into freeware.

Excellent idea, especially for the maintenance and repair DVDs.

I have worked with a few accessory vendors to create tutorials and videos. This is definitely a possibility for the future!

Thanks,

Jim

Jim,

Your DVD's have been most helpful, thanks!

Suggestion:
I'd love to see a video off the whole process of removing the Transmission then lubing the Clutch splines. Possibly include clutch replacement too. For both R1150 and R1200.

I'm getting close to having to do that job..

Thanks!

If you lived a bit closer you could be the one donating the bike for this one. I have been looking for an R1200 to do this with.

I had the same concern when referencing to the DVD. Just play the DVD and record it with your portable device.

OK, so I have taken the list of ideas and condensed them into single list:



DVD Ideas:
  • Final drive side seal replacement R1200/R1100/1150
  • Signal switches repair.
  • Fuel pump leaking issues and replacement
  • Repair leaking master cylinder
  • Repair and adjust micro-switch for the servo assisted ABS's.
  • Cleaning and servicing in between the pistons and the caliper that can cause stickiness
  • Bleeding, cleaning, maintenance and replacement of clutch slave
  • Clutch replacement R1100/1150/1200
  • Disconnecting the side stand safety switch
  • Lubing drive shaft splines @ transmission end
  • Installing a power outlet plug
  • Replacing the EWS ring and getting rid of security screws.
  • Pehaps you should split the DVD between the GS and the others like the S's, R and RT.
  • Differences for RT's.
    • Tupperware, how best to remove
    • Gas tank is plastic and the location of fuel filter/ level float is in a different place in the tank
    • ABS reservoir is under the tank.
    • Getting the 1100RT fuel gauge to show all the bars.
    • Changing the RT charcoal filter.
    • Installing an HID system.
    • Dimming down the HI beam indicator light.
    • Replacing/ upgrading headlight bulbs in RT's aiming RT light.
    • Installing floor boards.
    • Retrofit an RTP oil fan system
    • Replacing the RT windshields and/or it's motor
    • How to get behind the dashboard, speedo, bulbs
  • Installing peg lower kit
  • Changing a tire on an alloy rim and a spoked one.
  • An in-depth instructional DVD on using the GS911. Not just how to connect and go through the paces but what it all means
  • Changing fork oil, how and how often it should be done
  • A printed tutorial as option to each corresponding DVD, tools, torques, supplies.
  • Installation of a Centech or Blue Sea fuse box to power accessories?
    • The benefits of relay vs. non-relay fuse box
    • A recommendation for the best/closest wire to tap to get a switched wire for the relay
  • R1100 Low voltage ABS fault test and repair
  • How about the rewiring of the ABS control to eliminate the low voltage code
  • Final drive rebuild (Too complicated for the average DIY, too many ways to make mistakes causing more damage, premature failure, or injury).
  • A roadside repair/troubleshooting/diagnostic guide (laminated)
These are all good suggestions, many of which I believe I can use. If you have any more ideas, please feel free to list them here.

If you are interested in using your bike to accomplish some of these, and live near the Washington DC area, please let me know. I will be able to pay for, or help pay for some of the parts and supplies needed, depending on the parts. I will also give full credit in the DVD, as well as free copies of the DVDs produced for any assistance.

If your idea is chosen (you posted it first), you will, at a minimum, receive a JVB Productions decal, a DVD of your choice and mention in the DVD credits.

Thanks,

Jim
