For more than half a century, the Haynes Service Manual has been the authority for do-it-yourselfers and garage professionals of all kinds. John Harold Haynes wrote his first manual in 1956 about a home-built car he designed based on the Austin 7. After forming his publishing company, the Haynes book line expanded rapidly, with how-to’s and reference guides for everything from cars and trucks to personal computers and model railways. At Dennis Kirk, we have Haynes repair manuals for nearly every major motorcycle and ATV ever built, from the Yamaha KVS650 to the Honda Rancher, for enthusiasts who love to work on their favorite ride.
Haynes and his publishing predecessors knew two things: 1) riding enthusiasts take great pride in doing their own service, repairs and upgrade; and 2) they hate having to search for reliable information or backtrack after mistakes. That’s why each Haynes manual is co-authored by two professional mechanics that completely tear down each machine and then rebuild it. The detailed step-by-step instructions on everything from changing brake fluid to replacing an axle, along with corresponding diagrams and photographs, come directly from this process. Information such as maintenance schedules, wiring diagrams and mechanical tolerances are also included, and this data usually comes directly from the manufacturer.
Whether you ride an older classic machine, have just purchased a new ride or are looking to do a restoration project, a Haynes manual is a treasure trove of information that you’ll want to have in your garage or on your bookshelf. You’ll love the knowledge you gain, along with the time and hassle that you save from trying to plow ahead based on less reliable books.
