If you’ve ever been interested in motorcycle repair manuals / service manuals, you’re going to want to check this out. We’ll be going through the newest repair manual by Cyclepedia. It’s an interactive, digital-only motorcycle service manual, full of bright, color pictures, and easy step-by-step instructions.
The best part? Cyclepedia makes service manuals for all types of motorcycles, and they probably make one for you too. Check out this video to see what their repair manuals are like.
Yesterday I was planning on getting some work done on my 1997 Harley-Davidson Sportster XL1200. Another project motorcycle that I’m trying to bring back to her former glory, much like I’ve been doing with a Ducati Monster 620…
But then I got an email from Cyclepedia: They had a new service manual for the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and they wanted me to review it.
Cyclepedia is in the business of making digital service manuals. They get a perfectly good motorcycle, completely tear it apart, and put it all back together again. They figure out how to do this so that you won’t have to. Then they make a Kawasaki Ninja 300 repair manual and sell it to you for a pretty sweet price.
Let’s see how this goes…
I was kind of excited when Cyclepedia reached out. Although, if I’m being honest, it’s the only bike in my garage currently in 10/10 condition:
The Ducati leaks. The V-Rod has a brake dragging. The Yamaha doesn’t have high beams wired up. The Sportster in her current state is hideous. Only my little Kawasaki is fully-functional. But I won’t turn down a cool new manual.
So how is it?
Anyway, the manual is quite good. Here are a few of my favorite parts:
- Complete listing of specifications of all liquids, torque values, bolt sizes, etc. that you’re working
- Step by step easy to follow instructions
- BIG COLORFUL PICTURES THAT YOU CAN ZOOM IN ON
See for yourself! I made a video of the manual:
