I have an older 650 Wee factory manual I picked up from a dealer for a very good price. It was "used" but you couldn't tell it. Likely they had it on the shelf and the guys in the ship never bothered to look at it...:-)
If you plan on working on your ride the factory manuals are certainly the way to go. I always pick up a factory manual for any motorcycle I buy as I keep them for years and appreciate having the manual as a valuable source of knowledge and information at my fingertips. They are well worth the price if you plan on working on your ride, or just knowing more of the details of its inner workings.
Now that I have 'upgraded" my 2005 to a 2017 I guess I should sell my current manual and order the new one for the 2017. I normally keep my bikes for a lot of years and just feel like a factory manual is a valuable and essential tool for my ride.
'17 DL 650 Vstrom, Best value ride of all time. (replaced our '05 Wee)
'07 Triumph Tiger 1050 Feel the Power! Culled from the herd...gone but never forgotten.
BMW K1200 GT, Gone but never forgotten
BMW K100 RS, Beautiful German engineering
Husky 250WR, (1986) Last of the real Huskies made in Sweden
Bultaco's ...for those of you who remember....
A long list of so many others.....
Happiness is having a motorcycle with more power than you will ever need.
