Those subtitles... eish. Rather get rid of them. Good vid though, will give this a go at some point!

Are you talking about the auto-generated subtitles made by youtube that you need to switch on? Mine don't come on automatically.

Don't drain the lowers oil first and service with the forks upside down(handy if that is feasible), not quite the same as RS service?

I'm sorry but that wasn't the best instructional video I've seen. There were parts when he is explaining something while you see someone riding their bike. Why have scenes where people are riding their bikes in the middle of an instructional video??

It would have been far better if it was more comprehensive, explained in more detail and better scenes/close ups of the parts or procedures and no in between riding scenes.
