    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.

    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!

    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

    Whilst not the GSF250 version - which seems to only be available in Japanese. I was able to download an english version of the GSF400 Service Manual from https://www.manualslib.com/brand/suzuki/motorcycle.html. (just now in fact)

    At least it can give a good idea of things as the 2 bikes are quite similar. As usual lots of photos and diagrams. Better than nothing and easier in that you don't need to try and translate. I think using it, coupled with the resources already available on the site, should see mechanical repairs able to be done easier.

    So far, looking through the manual - it looks really good

    Lots of other motorcycle service and owners manuals available for free download off the site as well

    You can compare it to the one on my page https://litetek.co/Carb_Kit_Suzuki_GSF400.html
    Could be better, could be worse. In any case having the 400 one will make it easier to translate the 250 one, which you should do if you plan to keep it.
