Suzuki Intruder Volusia - post-winter maintenance workshop

Hello everyone,

I was putting some silly hours recently into recording a thorough "HOW TO" series on maintaining my bike.

It covers a rather thorough disassembly, maintenance activities and then complete assembly back.

I'm mid way now and thought I'll share what I produced so far.
I'm hoping this will be a good "go to" series for anyone who is yet to start doing work themselves.
It's all relaxed, slow paced and aimed at complete beginners.

I hope it will be useful to someone.

CHAPTER 1 - general disassembly

CHAPTER 2 - maintenance and reassembly


All the best,
Marcin

Nice videos. Thanks for making them.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
