Motorcycles are often ridden as a hobby or passion on special trips and voyages and are typically used to unwind and relax on the open road – either alone, or with a group of like-minded enthusiasts.


For millions of riders, motorcycles are a way to access motoring enjoyment on a higher level than with a daily-driven car, truck, or SUV. As such, when it’s time for a ride, the last thing the rider wants is a setback caused by a broken or worn part or some other maintenance-related issue.

Clymer and Haynes manuals lie to you at the most inopportune moment.

Use a factory manual.

I'm just here for the beer.

Actually I find that the Clymer pages wipe better than the Haynes pages.😁

HD manuals and parts catalogs (it's silly not to get the parts catalog because the exploded views are worthy enhancements to the service manual and you can save gobs of money using the numbers to search parts online) are consistently excellent. They are the best tools for working on your own machine or getting educated so you have a clue if you farm out your work.

BTW don't count on online dealer parts listings staying current as your motorcycle ages, though Windows Snipping Tool makes it easy to copy any images you might want for reference.
