I need a repair manual for 2001 bourget motorcycle

Bourget did not produce a repair manual for any of their motorcycles and the did not produce a parts manual for reference.
Have been told that that two times by Bourget dealers, but they said that the Bourget Motorcycle has not parts book available for customers. Do not know if that means that the dealers have a parts book.

Honda deale told me i needed a valve ajustment on my 750 shadow it got about 9000 miles on it i took it in the spark plugs were black it runs good they say one valve may need ajustment some one told me...

Spark plugs are carbon fouled black usually caused by leaking valve seals,bad oil control rings.The fuel flow, the fuel pressure, the fuel itself, the fuel pump, the fuel filter needs to be inspected.Also the oil needs to be checked.--------- If one of the valve is out of adjustment, it needs to be realigned, as it can cause the leak and this may cause spark plug getting black. --------- I agree that at present, motorcycle is running fine, but this spark plug getting foul black, is the indication to checked this above mentioned possibilities.--------- ---------- Get the valves and fuel system inspected by the local dealer or at local garages.They can inspect the valve and fuel system and do required tune up and adjustments.--------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

On Valve Adjustments: I believe I need some valve maintenance on my 86 VT500. When I have it running there is an audible (though only if you put your ear low to the engine) chatter/chik-chik-chik noise. It...

Good questions...
First, the valves are a regular maintenance item and should be adjusted regularly. The cam chain, if it has an external adjustment should be adjusted just as often.
If you have the Clymers manual you are half way there. Look at chapter 3- maintenance and tune up. Find the section on adjusting the valves and cam chain tension. Read it and see if you think you feel comfortable doing it. If you take your time and measure twice you can do this yourself. I would expect that the first time would take 3 or 4 hours but you should be able to get it down to about an hour after you are familiar witht he process. The biggest deterent is special tools. If you have some shop smarts you will be able to make your own for pretty cheap.
If you decide to tackle the project and have more questions or concerns feel free to come back to this site and ask our experts.
