Thumbs up How to tips from the pros and service manuals online

In an attempt to keep all this great information in one easy to locate spot, I have consolidated all the tips/tricks and cool links you might need when working on your bike.

Thanks again to Alanrider and Elskipador for their time and knowledge, and to Scorp for the time and effort put into the "F4i" thread.

A big to all that contribute every day to the garage.

Awesome, you did a great job.


Some service tips for the new 2005/2006 ZX6-R 636 owners would be great, if you have the time.

Hi guys,

here is an interesting way of making a home made carb synch tool... cheap, effective, and no possibility of liquids being sucked into carbs.

how to tips

I'm on a Honda CBR 1000RR. I'm going through my third stator in three weeks. It's been to the shop all three times. I've had to replace the rectifier once, this will be the third stator, and replced the battery. Every time it goes the same way. First, I lose all power to my display, then it sputters like it's out of gas, then she dies. I'll take the battery home to recharge it, it makes it home but dies soon after. Any help, advice, tips?? Thanks, Myles

# All are electronic books in .pdf format.

# Please contact holdbarbike@hotmail.com with your request / offer, Please fill in the exact brand / model / year etc. and a valid e-mail address, otherwise I can't contact you with further information.
# Of course it is possible you don't have a manual for exchange, or you really need it, In that case ... you are arranged to trust me and to make a small donation (PayPal), to the future extension of the collection can give a free manual to you, After your donations, you will be receiving service manual download link by e-mail (around 1 working day).
# (Note) The e-mail will be send to the address used for your Paypal account.
