Are There Video on how to change track alignment from "Flat" to "Progressive"

Does anyone know of detailed video on how to set the bike from "flat" or "progressive" rideability?

No vids as far as I know but this is the tutorial:

Moderately Easy:

1. You'll need to unload the swing arm:
a. Use a motorbike center lift or some similar
or
b. As I did:
I. Zip tie the front brake on
II. Locate some wood blocks or as I did ~ 17mm of high density foam to use as a center support
III. Position your support near the rear exhaust support (about under the Ducati of the clutch cover for a Termi setup)
IV. With the bike on the side stand, rock the bike over onto the side stand and front wheel till the rear is just clearing the floor
V. Slide in your supporting material

2. Remove the swing arm push rod pivot bolt (will need to support the rear wheel/swing arm a little to take the weight off the bolt - helps if you have an extra pair of hands)

3. Let the rear section go slack

4. Clear the swing arm push rod from the linkage assembly

5. Remove the swing arm push rod locking bolt

6. Screw out the push rod ball joint till the next alignment divot lines up with the locking bolt

7. Reinstall push rod locking bolt

8. Raise or pivot the bike to lower the swing arm and gain clearance to reinsert the swing arm push rod ball joint into the linkage assembly

9. Jiggle and support the rear wheel/swing arm till the swing arm push rod pivot bolt aligns with the forward hole on the linkage

10. Reinstall and tighten the swing arm push rod pivot bolt.
