Manuals

Ok, so i just bought my 2007 KLR and it didn't come with any manuals. I think i want a owners manual and a good service manual. Can you guys give me advice on what to buy. Are there any differences in owners manuals from year to year on Gen. 1 bikes? Thanks.

Me too!

Big Hoss,
You are reading my mind. I have the original owners manual and you can download that off the internet in pdf form. I have glanced at the Clymers manual for 2008 and newer, but the best price is $20 on eBay. Retail for the book is $34.95 and my local bike shop won't budge on the price.
I will keep looking for good recomendations, like you.
I hope someone responds to your inquiry.
Safe travels,
Jack

You can purchase an OEM owner's manual from Partzilla: http://www.partzilla.com/parts/detai...9987-1406.html

The Clymers service manual has served me well. You will probably find the best prices on eBay or Amazon. Be careful with copyright issues if you find a down-loadable pdf.

Thumper question

Hi Thumper,
What is that about the copyright? I saw where I could download the manual for $10. Is it not a good choice?

It might be okay. But I suspect there are some sources on the web that are not authorized to distribute it electronically. The manual is copyrighted by Kawasaki. There was a bit of discussion about it here a couple years ago. http://www.klrforum.com/showthread.p...ner%27s+manual
