Plan your work and work your plan. —Vince Lombardi
This quote applies to many things in life, and fixing a motorcycle is definitely one of them. We all have a friend who, at some point, tried to wrench on his bike and ended up with a box full of "spare" parts. Sometimes a box of parts and a non-working motorcycle. I say "friend" since I've never done anything silly like that. [cough, cough]. —Luis
Anyone with basic mechanical ability, a good assortment of the right tools, and a good place to work on the bike, can do the jobs necessary to keep a motorcycle running right and save money in the process.
Of course, the best insurance is to have and use the correct motorcycle repair manual, and The Motor Bookstore sells the best DIY repair and service manuals by Clymer and Haynes.
Unlike factory shop manuals, Clymer and Haynes manuals are written specifically for the do-it-yourself mechanic.
During production of the manual, the models covered by the book are completely disassembled, then reassembled in order to provide easy-to-follow photos and instructions, which you can follow so you can maintain, service or completely rebuild your motorcycle.
So whether you need to give your motorcycle an oil change, replace the air filter, inspect clean and gap the spark plugs, tune-up the bike, or clean and rebuild the carburetor, all the way to tearing the engine apart, inspecting and replacing parts, the reassembling it and reinstalling it in the frame, get the right motorcycle repair manual, and fix your bike right!
