    the factory service manual is generally the best option, although also a bit more money than the others.

    I owned a Clymers manual for my CB750. The Clymers manual looked like it was drafted by a dude with a crayon that knew a lot about bikes. The info was there, but the way it was presented was pretty lame and not really technical.

    Factory manuals are 100% the best option.

    factory manuals > *

    i'd rather listen to the guys who designed & built it tell me how to fix it over some random who tried to take the shit apart and put it back together again

    Search forums specifically for your bike. Alot of people have the PDFs and will PM them to you.
