Factory service manual or Clymer first?

If I have to get one or the other first, which should I get? Mine is a 2010.

I'm a factory manual guy when it comes to Kaws. I've have been staring at them for twenty+ years and know where to find stuff so keep that in mind. I'm biased.

I have used the aftermarket books but I always wind up coming back to the factory. The price sucks, but once again I was willing to pay with the new KLR.

Anyone need torque specs on an 86GPZ250R

The Clymer is more user friendly and is a bunch cheaper than buying the factory manual.

I'm a freak. I'm "that guy" when it comes to service books.
