I get "video unavailable" 1/3/2020, but if I copy and paste to another tab (Chrome) it comes up... in Italian.

I'm sure the work is instructive. I just happen to have a Canadian/Italian visiting but she's off with my wife... I'm sure I'll get the bill sooner or later. The visitor is of course not a biker so she may have some difficulty with technical terms.

(several hours later) my Canadian/Italian visitor watched the video and the shop owner says essentially that despite high mileage, the condition of the motor is impressive. Several minor parts were replaced, we didn't get quite which, but surely gaskets, seals and likely the crank bearings. The shop owner is even more impressed than he had been with the quality of BMW motors, etc. and quite went on about it.

We didn't see the clutch except being removed, and I didn't get comments about it. I wonder about the grainy surface on the intake tract in the head, but didn't get comment about it.

Thanks to Johan for posting this!
