Motorcycle Clutch: Changing Friction Plates on '82 Yamaha Maxim XJ 650
 
10:26
Changing clutch friction plates on a Yamaha 1982 XJ 650. Info on oil: fjowners.wikidot.com/oil The clutch change procedure is the same for most 80's XJ's as far as I know, except for the 550 (?) which adds a clutch boss spring to the mechanism, as well as a tabbed (?) plate to the mix. This video was just a last minute idea; I had to use a friend's camera because I didn't have mine with me. Hope it helps you anyways! Clutch Lever Adjustment and Clutch Cable Replacement How-To: http://xjbikes.com/Forums/viewtopic/t=2672/highlight=replace+clutch+cable.html UPDATES: Polock (xjbikes.com) mentioned: If you have a new gasket, get a cereal box and trace it--you can make your next gasket yourself from it. Take off the clutch cable at the clutch lever side, and you won't scratch up your clutch arm. Those five springs are generally advised to have replaced when you are doing a full clutch rebuild. If you leave a plate out of your clutch, it won't lock up--it'll just slip really badly. You should probably use a torque wrench if at all in doubt on the basket bolts (ones with springs)--they strip easily. It is advised to use locktite on the basket bolts, and anti-seize on the clutch cover allen bolts. "that's all minor stuff though, thanks for the vid, you done good" ---- Tsakz mentioned: "Nice job. Some other points: If the bike is on the side stand, you don't need to drain the oil. Before installing the new plates, they should be dredged (soaked) in oil. Also a thin film of oil on the gasket before mating the two surfaces. I always replace the clutch cable when I install new plates." --- Bigfitz commented: "Biggest "miss:" Not soaking all the new parts in oil, per my how-to which you quoted but didn't follow. (It wasn't just a casual suggestion.) And you DO NOT need to Loctite the clutch bolts; you DO need to use a torque wrench to keep from BREAKING things. Good effort. But here's the thing on how-to's: it's kind of important to do it RIGHT if you're going to present it as telling people "how-to." You fussed at me because my (correct) how-to didn't contain enough anti-idiot warnings. At least I present the correct procedures before declaring "this is how you do it." Might wanta study up a tad for the next one." Nice guy, that bigfitz... I guess you don't bite the hand that feeds you, even if it slaps you around as well. --------- If you would prefer to see a picture/text walkthrough, bigfitz has an excellent one here: http://xjbikes.com/Forums/viewtopic/t=29541/start=0.html It goes through some diagnosis procedures, walks the 550 users with springs and tabbed plain plates on their processes, shows some diagrams, and so on--a great supplement. _____ BUYING PARTS: All relevant parts can either be found on ebay (your luck on quality or correct descriptions may vary, and it's up to you to make sure you get the correct part--first time I ordered a valve cover gasket, I was sent the wrong one through a mix up in descriptions), or you can be guaranteed to get the right parts, high quality, with help and a high level of customer service at http://www.xj4ever.com/ (I have no affiliation with xj4ever, I just know of their great reputation and have had nothing but quality interactions with them.)

Bad Knee Injury--ACL, MCL, Meniscus, chipped tibia. Che Valdez @ Go Shibata, October 2013
 
01:58
A video of one of Kokoro's black belts not just tearing his ACL, but completely obliterating his knee. "Just saw DR. Bad news. I tore everything in the knee....ACL, MCL, Meniscus tear, maybe PCL, chipped my Tibia, and a quad strain. At least I still have my leg. He says 3 weeks till we can schedule surgery cuz it needs to heal some before going in for repair and then 3 weeks of post surgery recovery! 6 weeks before I can even think about walking around!" Che has black belts in both BJJ and Judo, has black belt students, and teaches at Paragon and Kokoro. He has had reconstructive surgery on his other knee; this was his 'good' knee. Get well soon, friend. Thanks for your help.

Kyle's Promotion To Brown Belt at BJJ Globetrotters Zen Camp 2017
 
03:42
Christian: "...who was not even considered, but during the last few days, a bunch of the instructors all came up and said, 'what the fuck, this guy--this guy submitted me, a few too many times, and I wasn't even trying not to defend it--" Morcegao: "--You don't even have to [___? It's Kyle?]; He was good, very very good." Christian: "--and um, we usually only qualify anyone for this thing, if they, you know, come up and say, 'hey, by the way'--I mean, it's not like I go around asking everyone if they have an instructor, that's not how it works... if you kind of let me know beforehand, 'by the way--'" Oliver: "'--I'm learning in the world'." Christian: '"--I've been taking gold in every single blue belt division for seven years and no one wants to put me in the next division.' something like that, anyways--" Mocegao: "A few of us said, it was stupid, him being a purple belt... Does he have an instructor?" Christian: "--That's what happened. And then comes the awkward situation where you kind of [have to find out] because jiu jitsu's weird... So, It was not really planned, but I, uh, we all agreed that this was pretty fair, so uh.... Kyle..." [walks up] Christian: "...And also, this was the only way we could actually get to throw Kyle because he would just fucking Judo throw everyone else." If you can tell the missing audio, let me know, I couldn't quite make it out from the video, but it was nice to hear. :)

The FJ lives!
 
05:23
Starting up the FJ1200 I flew across the country to pick up and drive back... First time it has started in more than a year. Previous owner sold it as a non-runner, "turn keys and nothing happens, electrical problem." I put in a new battery, rebuilt the petcock, flushed the carbs, and voila. Still have to fix it so that the starter button starts it so I can stop having to short out the solenoid to turn the crank over, but whatever, it runs!

Carrie And Lowell
 
32:30
One Sunday, Waterloo played Carrie and Lowell a week before its release and gave out posters for it in conjunction with a few places around the country. I recorded most of it. Here it is. Obviously not perfect, you can hear shop music. But it's pretty listenable. About 70% of album before it went away.

The Doll Room
 
01:29
This is a song of mine, that I wrote, performed, and recorded, and put to a video that I filmed & edited. The location was my great grandmother's doll room. I used a DV5900 camera. It's cheap, but it's the best I've ever had.

While watching a breakdancing circle, a person in a giant bear suit invaded out of nowhere and took over the circle. Much merriment ensued. (This is in downtown Jerusalem.) כיף במרכז העיר! איזה הפתעה... וכמה מוזר?

720 x 480 widescreen (pixel aspect ratio 1.212, rendered in vegas)
 
00:09
Confused about 720 x 480 being 16:9 or 4:3? Read explanation below. This video: 720x480, with pixel aspect ratio of 1.212(1), exported in vegas. Original content was true 720p with a pixel aspect ratio of 1:1. Explanation: A common question: Is 720x480 widescreen or not? Answer: you're asking the wrong question. 720x480 can be either widescreen or standard--the reason this is true is that 720x480 is an incomplete formula. In reality, your footage will either be (720 x 1) x 480, or (720 x 1.2121...) x 480, where that new number refers to the dimensions of the pixels you are measuring! Widescreen (16:9) assumes you have rectangular pixels, while typical tv aspect ratio (4:3) assumes square pixels. Of course, these aren't mathematically perfect or ideal, as they are based on old analog measurement... it gets pretty complex. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standard-definition_television

Steaming hot jose

After an intense BJJ roll, I noticed jose was literally steaming out of his jacket. Pretty intense. A testament to the quality of our A/C and the intensity at which Jose and Nate roll...

Wind Chill: 1000 miles in the cold
 
00:32
Doing the Iron Butt Saddle Sore 1k and Bun Burner 1.5k in the same ride. Just before dawn, right before my last receipt for the 1k, my bike died. It ended up being a failing petcock, but it took 30 minutes to figure out and get back on the road. When I made it 20 miles down the road and finally got to the gas station, I only had about 17 minutes to spare! As for the ice... I was going around 120mph, pre-dawn, just outside Albuquerque, in November. I'm not sure what the temp was, but it was obviously really, really cold. I had on 3 coats, 1 of them heated and on its highest setting, heavy leather ski gloves (hands were still numb), several pairs of pants, and a rain shell... And a balaclava and a scarf, under the full face helmet. COLD!!!!
