Far as I know the only difference between your K5 and my K4 is the color. If anyone else knows otherwise I would certainly stand corrected.
As for the matter of the "online" service manual, that link does take you to a posted copy of the factory manual. As someone who is in the publishing business, I can guess that manual is not public domain. It is a product of someone's work. That's what they do for a living. It is not free and should not be posted without of the permission of the owner. Since the big S still sells this book for profit, I don't think they've agreed to let anyone give it away.
It's pretty handy to get the information immediately and for free, but you know what? It's stealing. Of course as someone who publishes and sells books for a living, I am a bit biased here but stealing is stealing. I am not going to tell Suzuki those links are there but sooner or later they're going to find out and they'll likely take action against the responsible parties.
Just my two cents, thanks for letting me vent.
