Can u PM or email me if u find anything suitable ?
Will do Grey.
Can anyone recommend a good general/basic motorcycle maintenance guide for the newbie here? I have the service manual for my bike, but sometimes there's an assumed level of knowledge required...
If you can find a Haynes, Clymer or Gregory's for your bike they often have more beginner-friendly steps.
I know the Clymer I have for the KLR650 and the Haynes one for the CB250RS are fairly helpful that way.
Hope this helps - I'll see what else I can find.
Try http://www.amazon.com/Motorcycle-Basics-Techbook-Haynes-Manuals/dp/185960515X and http://www.amazon.com/Zen-Art-Motorcycle-Maintenance-Inquiry/dp/0060589469
The second one is philosophical fiction but is a damn good read!
Cheers Fred I couldn't find a Haynes or similar for my bike yet but saw those ones, that and the general maintenance one might be the go...
Am actually reading zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance although it doesn't really have a lot of practical advice but I am enjoying it!
Have a peek at this one also ..... I havnt actually studied it myself so it may be technical in nature but may be useful.
My awesome wife has put this together for me, parts explosion and part numbers for 1990 Honda VT250L. Its all the stuff still available for order that i have found, hope it helps anyone who can use it!

hey all...after a workshop manual for my 92 gsx250ssm katana (GJ76A) needed for general maintenence,wiring diagrams etc...guessing there could be another manual for the suzuki inline 4 which could have same wiring etc...have no issue paying for premium member to download manual but it must be the right one...cheers ...and also if anyone has a spare speedo they want to sell
Just about everything available for most 250s is in the resources
250 Katana stuff seems to be non existent ... the larger ones moreso
Grasshopper has a 750 Katana so we have the manuals etc ... I messaged u a link to it all, which may help
You probably already have it but parts book https://en.impex-jp.com/catalogs/moto/suzuki/9900b-68034.html and you may be able to buy a hardcopy from the Japanese auction sites.
