Any thoughts on which Paul Sayegh service DVDs to get?

I already know how to get my front body panels off, change my oil, adjust my handlebar height, replace my heated grips and lube my throttle cables with Silicone spray.

In addition, I have changed brake pads, trans fluid and final drive grease on my prior RT and GSs.(also replaced a head gasket on one side) and have done numerous "oil head" 1100 and 1150 valve adjustments.

Given that level of experience, which of Paul Sayegh's service DVDs should I get? Dont need the basic disc # 1 as far as I can seel

I notice that he mentions "checking valve clearance"....but I do NOT see any mention of "adjusting valves" which is something I would like to see done.

any thoughts?

We don't adjust valves; we replace the "buckets" to bring the clearance back into spec.

I'm aware of that,....but....I still call that a valve adjustment.

Brian, keep watching the South Central section for a Tech Session. There is one real soon up in the D/FW area and there is usually one in your back yard every so often. That is a great place to watch, do, help, get done, learn about the bike.
