Haynes Motorcycle Maint Techbook - any good?

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by gegvasco, Feb 22, 2005.

  1. I've had my first bike about a month and I like to be mechanically hands-on to a limited extent. So doing small to medium size/complexity maintenance jobs is definetely something I want to learn. I saw the Haynes Motorcycle Maintenance Techbook on a website and wondered if anyone had any opinions on whether this would be a good starting point?

    I have a '00 VTR250 and unfortunately there are no service manuals openly available for them, only a dealer-only CD manual which I can't find on the net.

  2. The Haynes maintence books are fantastic, very easy to follow, heaps of pictures to explain stuff, i recommend them.
  3. Yep ditto on that. Great books
  4. gotta agree also..my Haynes book is one of the most useful tools in my shed.
  5. Sounds like a winner. Will have to order one. Thanks for the responses.
