Owner's manual?

Hi, all,

The guy that I bought my 2006 from promised me he'll mail me his owner's maual to me. Now it is more than 2 weeks, still no sign of receiving it. I guess I am not going to get it from him after all.

I've downloaded the service manual here. Did some readings while not able to ride due to the cold and rain. Just today, to the very front part of the manual. Saying that you should check your owner's manual first. Well, there must be some information that was not included in the Service manual.

Would like to have a copy of the VN750 owner's manual. Is there any digital copy somewhere I can download? It doesn't have to be for 2006. Because they should be about the same. Thanks in advance.

You can buy the owner's manual from Kawasaki, it's on their website.

A service manual is a good thing to have. I have the Clymer and love it. The owners manual is pretty much worthless, all it does is say "see your Kawasaki dealer" over and over again. What little usable information there is in the owners manual is also in the service manual. Jerry.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

Jerry (above) is right. Pretty much all you really need is in a Clymer manual. And a Clymer manual will do you a lot more good than an owner's manual. If you should need something else, you can probably find it on this forum in a previous thread.

The information already in this forum's archive of threads is truly amazing....

Thanks a lot. Old Dog. Now it is completed.

BTW, I put a Texas personal license plate on mine today . It reads "SMILNG". With the group support like this, I'll definitely smiling when riding on mine.

Have a nice day.

Once again, I only regurgitate something I learned here, on this site. This is a link to a pdf file containing the service manual for our bikes:

http://www.tocmanufacturing.com/File...nd%20Parts.pdf

It can be priceless at times, just like the pointers and tips we have been left by our VN750 forefathers.
