I never would have guessed that the standard procedure for draining the oil includes removing the exhaust system and rear wheel.

The idea I have is more formatting than substance. The video format is great for giving a person an overview of the procedure before getting started. They do not work as well as a step-by-step guide. It would be helpful if the videos came with companion files, similar to your pictorials, that a person could load onto their smartphone or iPad to reference while performing the work. Having that information on a smartphone could come in real handy on a trip when roadside repairs come up and the DVD is back at home.

Nice stuff.

Interesting you say that. I have each of my pictorials, covering much of the DVDs, on file as downloads in PDF format.

I have a couple of your instructional dvds. I like them very much, and I have learned a lot from them.

i would love a dvd where you take the 1150 or 1200 engine itself apart (and reassemble it).

Maybe to much effort for a limited marked/interest?

Thanks, I like that my videos help people save money and do their own work.

You are right, limited audience on that, though some would buy it just for fun.

I am considering a Fall/Spring video for those that winterize their bikes. How to safely put it away, and how to safely get it ready for riding season. (For those really cold places, of course! )
