The 11th edition of KL650E or Gen2 service manual 99924-1384-11 has a current msrp of $74.95 from any US dealership. RMATV/MC sells at $58.46 which can't be very much profit margin at all. Because K doesn't give as much margin on publications & special tools as they do parts.

Back to the OP, 'weloveour86se' issue. RMATV/MC doesn't show the publications for the KL600's.
But Kawasaki.com does. Go to 'owner center' drop down on RH side of home page.

1984 KL600-A1 base manual, possibly in paper Only, #99924-1050-01, $34.95

The 1985/1986 KL600-B1&B2 Service Manual Supplement #99924-1063-51 is not shown. Which deals mostly with the electric start gear train and charging system of the B series. (Would be very similar to KL650-A series 1987-2007, #99924-1080-63.)

Mee too I have a brand new MC . As I look over this bike, what a piece of junk. No wonder your always working on it! Even the engine bolts are rounded. Did I say brand new?

Which engine bolts are you referring to?

Start a new thread, I'm curious of your issues. Please.

Thumbs up

The kick stand for the new center stand I just installed from Studabaker. They told me 13 foot lbs. and to use anti seize compound. Also getting ready to install the lowering dog bones from Blk Pantner. Was told the torque should be 60 foot lbs. Need to buy a repair manual. As a Major Airline mech. I need my books to do the job right.

Reckon Studebaker knows what they're talking about, but . . . 13 ft-lb sounds light to me. I'd think thread-locker, rather than anti-seize compound, would be appropriate for such a center stand fastener at that torque level, but . . . that's just ME!

Full disclosure: Happy Trails ADJUSTABLE HEIGHT center stand.

I'll dis-agree with that statement, JdgDReDD.

I find 18 ft lbs with Anti-Sieze grease to be perfectly fine for those foot pegs bolts, as long as they were not ABUSED by the early Gen 2 books which originally called for 33 ft lbs, WOW!!

18 - 21 ft lbs is quite common for 8mm / steel to steel / torque spec for Metric motorcycle bolts, IME.

This is a 2 year old thread guys!

But I could not let jdgDReDD's comment about 14 ft lbs stand with-out question!
