Oh good question! I was just wondering which one is best, the Kawi one, Clymer, or any of the many pdf ones. Can't wait to see the verdict.

When I rebuilt the ZX11, I used both the kawi manual and the Haynes manual together. I found that some info was better in one or the other, combined, they were perfect.
Kawi - more detail but harder to understand
Hayne - more explanation, less detail

All I have is the Clymer, but it is pretty dope.

The cover is from the Kawasaki manual.

Whatever it is, I think at that price it is pirated.

Bad ju-ju.

I downloaded a kawaski manual and for a 1.50 and then tranfered it to a cd and it's the full service manual. Kind of a pain to use though.
