You would want the service manuals. I don't think you will find a good copy online legal or otherwise. I am thinking one or two service items and it would pay for itself. Otherwise you are just guessing on getting at things, torques, reassembly. I would not buy it if you do not have the tools or serious intent to do the work. Even just simple things like getting wheels off for tire changes saves money vs. paying dealer. My dealer wants 75 bucks each to swap a tire on bike vs. 25 to mount tire off bike. I should learn to mount but just haven't taken the plunge yet. Fork oil, coolant, brake fluids are all going to add up if you pay for service and the bike is gone while being done. I also like the peace of mind knowing everything is buttoned up and done right (any doubt and you need to sort it before riding) and if I have to deal with some issue (cables, flat, battery) I have some familiarity with the items. Now if you are not mechanically inclined or equipped maybe it is not for you. For me half the fun is tinkering around with this machine.
I want my dealer to make a fair profit and be able to keep qualified mechanics on staff and trained but I would not pay dealer to lower pegs, replace windscreen, add tool tube, install risers, install fork brace, replace horn, replace pegs, install top case, replace locks, install tank ring..........
Make sure that rear caliper is properly slotted in the swingarm btw when mounting rear wheel.
