Fred, do you accept PayPal?
Thanks!
The distributor takes all the major credit cards, but Pay Pal is not an option. You can order right off the secure web site via credit card, or you can phone in your order during business hours (8am-5pm central M-F).

I must have gotten ripped off -- I didn't get any tapes. All I got was DVDs of Fred -- lot's of Fred's hands, a few of Fred's feet, and some raing in the background. Did the tapes include Fred's lovely wife as helper?

Seriously, as a motorcycle-wrenching neophtye who sometimes wonders where they can find the people that write directions so difficult to understand, Fred's DVDs are awesome. I honestly take them with me when I travel in case something happens on the road and I may need to work on something I am not familiar with. I honestly would not be afraid to attempt a rear tire change on the road for the first time as long as I had Fred's DVDs with me. (Who knows, maybe the tapes are even better.)

These are a GREAT investment in your Wing. And they are one of the few expenses that I would call an investment. They will save you money in the long run and make you much more confident working on your bike and talking to mechanics when the work is over your head.

I was so proud to have taken the top shelter off, I wanted to invite the
neighbors over to see how great I was. :lol: I never would have
attempted it without fred's DVDs.

I adjusted my cruise control & ran some wires for a volt meter underneath
the right side pocket. I went conservative with 3 full turns on the cruise.
4 would have been best, but it is much better then before. I numbered
my bolts with a little marker via a Fred Tip. :yes1:

I have only watched the parts of the DVDs I wanted to so far.

P.S. For you 2006 & up onwers, there is some small tupperware changes
I think I have read on this board.

Like I wrote before, even if you never use Fred's CD's as a maintance tool, just to see what's all under the tupperware is a treat in it selve.

One of these day's when I collect the needed supplies, antifreeze, water-wetter etc. I'll tackle my coolant change.

Thanks Fred, and best money I ever spent.

Yes, I think mostly in the upper (gages) cover. Here's how it comes off FYI.......(*DON'T TRY TO REMOVE THE SPEAKER COVERS* )
remove the plastic trim around the ignition, pull up on the "tupperware" at this area it is on grommets and will come loose.....then pull away at the top sort of near the speakers...also on grommets. then remove the wires for the tweeters, and the "information display" underneath. walla!

There may be a bolt or two in there before you do all this, I don't recall.....but of course look for them first!

They won't let us use the Armadillo anymore. Some nonsense about mammal cruelty. He tended to be a bit slow anyway and we all got tired of complaints about him rooting around in folks gardens after delivery.

I believe they are now going either UPS or FEDEX. Delivery is usually 2-3 days after you order.

Well I bought my set from Fred a while ago. Recently I wanted to start viewing them, so a began to look for them. Hmm, did I loan them to someone? The only guy I could think of said, "No, you didn't loan them to me." So I looked everywhere I could think of, to no avail.

So tonight I placed an order for my second set and I hope to get to watch these before I lose them!!

Thanks, Fred!

Hey Kennharvey,
Since you ordered a second set, you know sure as hell the other set will suddenly appear from no where. You can give them to me, since two sets wont do you any good. :yes:

Thanks Fred!

I've almost ordered your DVD's several times but this time I finally broke down. My local dealer charges $85 labor for each tire changed and I am hoping to take this on myself.
