Most of it is pretty basic stuff...valve bit is worth a look. The "Mr Chumley Warner" type mechanic is quite amusing, as is the soundtrack.

These videos have a wealth of useful information (though perhaps a bit basic for some) including all important specifications for the job at hand.
Highly recommended for the home mechanic and novice alike.

Is this part of that maintenance series of videos with the two buxom assistant wrench wenches ;-)

Billiant for a newbee like me. Probably won't have to worry about it until warantee runs out. Will put it away until then.
BTW, any updates to this? Seems reasonably old by the commentry - sounds like the news readers on the old 'News Reals' that we used to get here in New Zealand from GB around the time of WW II. ;)

THE CHAIN & FINAL DRIVE VIDEO. Not mentioned in the video is the need to use the spanner tool so the chain is in the full loose position before fitting the new chain (as one or more links may need to be removed depending on sprockets utilized). The video did not mention the generally accepted best practice of replacing the sprockets when replacing the chain. The video is somewhat dated as DID chains are now in use by Triumph, not the Regina mentioned in the video. While not a Triumph procedure, a good safety practice when re-installing the wheel is to use a plastic wire-tie to secure the safety clip because of reported instances of the clip having come off.

Noticed on the oil & filter change that they never showed application of light smear of oil to the filter sealing ring. A sound practice tip is to prime the oil filter before fitting it - amazing to see the oil seemingly "disappear" when you fill it the first time as it's absorbed into the element.
