    Just bought this... Review by carter
    Just bought this dvd to watch and see how big of a project im getting into. I consider myself between beginner and intermediate mechanic...just starting to get into the nitty gritty of the internals. This video was great except for a couple areas where i think if you didn't have good mechanical intuition or friends to hit up to clarify you may get prettttty stumped. The things that i noticed most were...

    camera angles-
    a lot of crucial parts where there are precise movements or placements all you can see is him messing around inside the tranny from 8 feet away and you cant see anything hes actually doing....when the camera is close a lot of times its viewing from behind his hands and you cant see crap....maybe a 3rd angle or guy with a hand held getting in close would help. that would allow you to really see what the hell hes doing in there while hes explaining. Better yet get a bench in the middle of a room or put that tranny on a vice and plate in the middle of the room where he, and camera guys can walk 360 degrees around it so that you dont miss a thing.

    skipping things-
    a couple times on crucial parts it skips ahead and there is a piece already assembled and to a guy that knows this stuff its no biggie but for someone seeing the inside of a tranny for the first time its a huge deal. Keep in mind as a first timer were scared shitless that we are gonna miss a step and end up in a dangerous or expensive situation down the road. So more explanation would be good even if it was cheesy and overdubbed.

    everything went pretty smooth-
    what about for a lot of us who probably bought trannys off people that may have been in shitty condition. in the video he references things that you might have to fix or take care of but doesnt explain much about how to or what your options are. On the more meticulous parts where it takes a little massaging or precise movements it seems to work out pretty perfect in most parts of the video...it could definitely use some more explaining on what to do if it doesnt work the first time or you have to re-adjust something.

    fitment-
    thank god i watched this thing before i tore into the tranny. at the very end i would have realized that the tranny i have is actually earlier then my engine. i would have had to completely disassemble and buy the correct main shaft set up for my engine.

    -tools
    unfortunately the reality of the situation is, i dont have the majority of the tools he used....especially the specialty tools that cost hundreds of dollars. This goes for everything from brass punches, chisels, dead blows, stone, air craft sealant crap, 4 different hammers, shim kit, polishing bits etc. chances are if im buying this dvd i probably dont have enough money to pay for someone to rebuild my tranny, therefor im gonna get brave and try this out(plus i wanna learn this stuff) after all its hyped up to be easy as pie and DIY labeled, but i cant invest in all those tools. For a lot of people buying this dvd if you laid out all the tools, materials and where to get them. A good majority of the people probably wouldnt be comfortable starting this project. But you get a kook like me with a small tool bench and start taking stuff a part and every 30 min in the video i gotta hit pause and go to the store and buy a new tool your gonna have an overwhelmed frustrated dude whos not stoked on the video.


    even though i gave it a brutal review... it really was a good video, atleast a good start. I really think with your guys' marketing and resources you could put out the same dvd but 10 times better even with the same host. He was great just needs a little bit more directing/producing. You guys are pioneering the diy video stuff on the old bikes and finally putting out a good product. Keep refining it and it will be superb. Still gonna try this project but im gonna try to rent some time in a local indie shop to use the tools. Then ill break out the shovelhead DVD and give that one a whirl. (Posted on 6/21/2013)

    looking at factory... Review by Jeff O
    looking at factory repair manuals with crappy out of focus pictures sucks, and some of the details seem to always get left out, this video helps to fill in the gaps left out by most of the repair manuals you find. (Posted on 6/5/2013)

    Kaisler makes it a lot easier. It's like taking a rebuilding course without all the extra BS, time and expense. He doesn't say anything that the average guy won't understand. (Posted on 6/14/2013)
