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.

Is this forum incapable of embedding video?

or can we get an Admin to open up the embedding options?

SS Adrenaline:
Heck, nice job, this should be a sticky.  Cheers

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.
