And...we all know the CORRECT amount is 180 ml...for future readers of the thread.

Otherwise, an informative and well produced video that will surely take out some of the mystery about FD servicing.

I do, however, recommend that the main stand be tied to the front wheel. As it is , the setup isn't very stable.
In fact, you can see how the whole bike moves back and forward as he works on it.

Minus two points for that omission, and loss of expert-status.

Great DIY video. I could have used this when I had my first GS.
