YouTube 919. I thought this was going to be great, now I'm scared how it'll come out.

I don't understand the colors, some gray, black and stickers all over the tank. I'm not liking where this is going. Love the new throttle, cables, fender, engine work, etc... but the stickers on the tank and mixed colors could ruin it.

BTW, did he just take off the front wheel, put on a new tire and NOT do the seals or fork fluid? Did I miss something?

My guess is that KarlJay is under the impression that the "Patron's bike" is getting lots of new bits and pieces, new tires, but that basics such as fork oil changing are being ignored.

Exactly. Given the overall condition of the bike, why would a fairly common, and important thing like fork oil and seals be ignored?

Great the he's done the valve adjustment check, tensioner, drive chain, tires, etc... but how can you do those things and pass up the fork oil and seals?

I really hope I just missed it and he actually did it.

The tank and quicker throttle are mistakes IMO, the adjustable throttle and a factory color tank would have been a better choice.

My suspicion is that it wasn't done.
Seeing as the build is "patrons driven", I'd assume that every bit fitted has been displayed and mentioned.

How do I emulate this to make some $$$ at the same time like he is?
Any suggestions?
I could even pluck some elastic bands at the end of an episode.

Here's a suggestion.
Make your video wearing a kilt and play some bagpipes ... Maybe then I'd watch it.

That sounds like a winning combination!
