There's quite a few anti Delboy vids. (Here's three)

As with Delboy, don't take his word as gospel.

Theres been a coupla videos where he states something which was questioned by the comments and he just has a bitch fit that point out obv flaws.

lol :angel - yeah - often seems to be the case with these type of guys - I respect the guys obvious knowledge and skill but that can go hand in hand with being a tad arrogant and always having to be right etc. Although to be honest I guess most people are like this about what they consider to be their 'specialised subject' - I can be like this about stuff (I think) I know a lot about and will argue my point till hell freezes over - just be thankful that I don't consider motorbikes to be my specialised subject :angel although passionate about bikes I'm well aware that there is tons of stuff I don't know and I'm still learning loads and am more than happy to be told that I am wrong about something by people with more knowledge and experience on bikes than me.

I couldn't agree more :clap Likewise with any internet content.

This geezer has some very and is a mechanic by trade.... but i'd never do Would you?

As with all info it's advisable to obtain it from various sources. (Especially from the bikes workshop manual)

I just found the topics debated on The Workshop channel interesting... that is all. :)

Haha

even his latest (he uploads about 300million videos a day so this may well be inaccurate) video about magnetic sump plugs.
He initially made a video saying they're useless, then made a comment reply video and now has made a 25ish minute video rambling about magnetic sump plugs.
I didn't watch the video beyond 2 mins but the comments are full of people calling him out on things.

I already do.
I use a special grease (which is mineral based) called CeraTec.
It has a melting point of 1000 degC and is not soluble in water (according to the MSDS).

I use that on bikes & cars, cars seem especially prone to brake pads seizing resulting un-even brake balance and pad wear.
Like shown in that video, I just put a small amount on the resting / sliding surfaces where the pad meets the caliper.
