I've used Haynes for my Rebel but does the forum have a consensus on which manual is the best? I've seen Haynes, Clymer, Kawasaki Repair Manual, and some other unknown brands online.

I've always used Clymer and the factory manual together, sometimes one will show something better than the other. If you can only have one then the factory manual, hands down.

Factory manuals tend to skip over common mechanics knowledge, such as the rules of working on braking systems, whereas the others will spend more time on weekend repairs.

I've always used Clymer...
Even though there were "mistakes"...

Needing one now for my 2005 1600 Classic for a future bevel gear bearing replacement...

Anyone got one lying around collecting dust ???
PM me PLEASE !!!

The OEM manual might be better in this case as it contains all of the bevel gear adjustments and I am not sure if the others do.

Ok thanks, I found an online PDF version of the kawasaki service manual so i'll look through that for now. The bike seems like a lot of bike for now, but I'm hoping that with practice I'll feel as comfortable as I do on the Rebel 250. =)
