K7 Wee maintenance manual

Does anyone have a maintenance manual for their K7-650? If so, where did you get it? The only one I can locate is at the Suzuki dealer and it's $130 CDN!! Does Clymer make a manual for the k7-650 yet or is it too soon? Just curious to know what book other Canadians are using for their 2007 model Wee.

I, too, have been looking for the Clymer but, as far as I can tell, they haven't published one yet for any DL650. I've been told that we could probably expect something next spring.

Service Manual

Check out www.repairmanual.com

I got mine for $69.95 US plus shipping - covers 2004-2007 and is the actual Suzuki manual. I too was quoted $130 CDN at the dealer who actually said he would be ashamed to sell me one for that price (although he also didn't volunteer to come down any in price either).

Delivery was about 8 days to Ontario.

Hope this helps.

Manual

Just ordedred mine from my local Suzuki dealer. $75.00 US. I buy a factory manual for everything I own. I'm just wierd that way. I will say that I find the Haynes books to be superior to Clymer, though. The English are just so darn thorough.

Unfortunately they are also rather slow.
Haynes' only Strom manual is book number 4083 and it covers the DL1000 model years 02-04.

Yes, this is Shep's 1000 manual. Does an online version of the 650 manual exist?

By the way, I see that Paul Donahue has started a similar thread on this
