I have both the downloaded PDF manual and the Clymer paper manual. I seriously prefer the Clymer, as it explains things a lot better. And it has a lot of helpful pointers which can save you a lot of time and trouble, and help prevent damage to both you and the bike. It was written for the do it yourselfer, while the oem manual was written for Kawasaki mechanics.

As for as the engine goes, I HIGHLY recommend Roach's videos. He did an outstanding job, and makes everything crystal clear.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

I know it's a late reply, but I'm new to the forum and definitely willing to filehost if it means spreading the knowledge. PM me and we'll set it up.
