Good Repair Manual Download?

Does anyone know of a good repair manual that can be downloaded? The Kawasaki one is not too worthwhile as the pictures suck and the instructions are not detailed enough for a tinkerer like me. I would buy a Clymer, and I still might, but I find it much easier to have one on my computer.

I have a clymer for my bike and a haynes for my truck.. I haven't seen the haynes for our vulcan yet personally, but I like the format of my haynes that I have better than the clymer... personal preference.

good luck!

Thanks Dragon, but this is the same file I was complaining about!! It is nice to have but it isn't detailed enough for a non-professional like myself. The pictures aren't too detailed or clear enough and I need to know where on the bike the pictures are pointing to, etc. Guess I'll just have to buy a Clymer's unless anyone knows of a better download. Too bad the Clymer's isn't available in PDF format.

if you compare the clymer to the PDF file...there isn't that much difference...In my opinion they are very much one and the same. As for the Haynes...I love em for the car...but it really sux when it comes time to do tests on the bike (the R/R or Ignition are two prime examples). What i like about the PDf version is I can print a file to office, coppy the picture and paste it into my photo editor and blow it up and make a better resolution for view on a pc. Also if the pics and diagrams aren't very clear in the manual...ask for help here...if it hasn't already been posted, then starting a topic on your concern is just what this forum is all about.

Thanks slimvulcanrider. You've come to my assistance before, and I know you'd be there for me again when I need it. So would many others on this forum.

I bought a Clymer's on the net and I'll probably just rely on you all for help. By the way, I found my mystery leak (oil leak from radiator?) and it was because of the help I got here. Thanks, all...
