Electronic manual

Hi folks,
Anyone know if there is a downloadable electronic version of either the Kawasaki or Clymer manual. Going to Africa soon and trying to save weight, could bring this along on my phone.

Cheers for any help.

There are PDF versions out there.

I don't know of any free manuals available. I had to buy mine.

I think I found a website, security-protected, that had 'em all!

And, . . . I think I posted the URL to this free service manual website on this very website!

I posted caveats, inviting the moderators to delete my post if anything in violation of any intellectual property law was involved, but . . . I didn't notice any indication of anything outside the law.

I think Kawasaki KLR600 and other factory service manuals were available, too; website based in Holland, I think.

I believe I found the website from Google; you might research there yourself, or . . . sift through my previous posts!

CAVEAT: While I had no problem downloading whatever manual I sought, BE AWARE OF THREATS when you download stuff from unknown sites; have some protection software (e.g., AVG, etc.) active. I just tried one from Google, got a threat alert, engaged protection option and backed away, slowly, from the keyboard!

Thought I found my original source here: http://www.pdfmotomanual.com/ but . . . I couldn't negotiate successfully the gibberish security letters used to separate humans from robots.

Thanks Damocles, I did indeed find an electronic version of the Clymer manual that I already own. Much appreciated. That's a good bit of weight saved!

Cheers!
