Video Tutorial Thread

I thought since more and more members are making excellent videos, it'd be nice to put them all together in one place to make searching easier.
PM me if you find a worthwhile GS500 tutorial and I'll update the list.

All of these videos are presented with no warranty or guarantee of any kind. They are meant to be used as a visual aide only, not as a service manual replacement. If you need a service manual, purchase one through this link (the site gets a donation):

Thanks for collecting the tutorials. I can see ones done and not have to duplicate.
Next I'll do voltage regulator replacement. Will also include notes on LiFe batteries in it and the correct and incorrect battery for a GS500.
Suggestions for more?
LED in gauges?
Cutting out headlight when starting (2004 and earlier as newer ones do that)?

It'd be pretty interesting to have the headlight cutoff explained in laymens terms.

Thanks to all who have contributed to this thread.  This one thread makes owning a GS500 a real pleasure.  I've bought the service manual through the GStwins site but find these tutorials more helpful.  I've owned my 2009  for almost 2 years now ( bought it brand spanking new) and have now developed an oil leak coming from the sprocket cover area.  I've cleaned all the gunk off the chain and under the sprocket cover too.  I think my leak might be coming from the clutch push rod area.  Can anyone do a tutorial on how to change this seal .  Come to think of it,  I wish there was a collection of all the possible leaks and fixes for this bike because it's a fairly common issue at one time or another for most GS owners.  Thanks,  and cheers.
