Reviewer: Bob from Istanbul, Turkey

This is a "must buy" book for anyone who rides a motorcycle...if you are the kind of person who takes pride in keeping your bike running at its best, then there are chapters on everything from changing your oil to doing your own tune ups. Even if you hate the idea of getting grease under your fingernails there are chapters on the best way to breaking in your new engine. (Something I could not find in my owners manual!) to the best way of keeping your machine looking like new...a wealth of information on planning trips and buying the proper gear...for 30 years, the first purchase I have made after getting a vehicle has been a Chilton manual. My manuals always seem to end up grease stained, dogged eared, and swollen from moisture, but they have always kept me on the road and saved me money...Chilton manuals...are well organized, easy to understand with clear photos and drawings... an extensive troubleshooting section"
