If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers as required. There is that sort of information available as well.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

Hi, Im looking for the manual relating to the mechanism of the engine of a Triumph Rocket III (2008). Can you be of any help?

Hi, Lillie the vast majority of service, parts, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 sometimes more and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, then there is eBay where you may be able to find what you need at a very high price because of its age and rarity. Most of the "FREE" manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have.

Setting instructions


TOTALLY Unfair advantage !!!

Wallace Morse...

At least you know the make & model.

Being a horological admirer since I was a child
(took my daddy's alarm clocks apart... to see why they TICK'd).

Single button can only be a function of the "LENGHT"
of button operation..

I usually can decipher two (2) button clocks in a few seconds...

One button...

Single button, no stem... What else could it be...

Comment me back... the suspense is killing me

How do I adjust the steering head bearing from a 2008 HD road king classic

Jack bike so front wheel is off the ground.
Push handlebar to left until front end starts to continue turn by itself.
When it hits the fork stop (rubber bumper), it should bounce to the right, fall back to the left, then bounce right one more time before stopping, somewhere around the center position.

Remove headlight nacelle.
Remove steering stem nut (on top of top triple clamp).

Under the top triple clamp is a star adjuster ring.
Tighten to decrease swing (tightening bearings).
Loosen to increase swing (loosening bearings).

Reinstall steering stem nut (60-80 ft/lbs).
Reinstall headlight nacelle.

2004 dayton 600--how to replace the steering bearings

yes, but in a pinch the shock adjustment tool may work, or i've used large channel locks, just be careful not to mar it up, and you will probably have to remove the tank and airbox to get a good turn on it. hope that helps.

Right mirror stalk spins on handlebar, can't keep a hold position

Hi there, have just solved this problem on my 865cc Bonnie. The problem is the mirror stems stepped shoulder protrudes beyond the black lever housing that the mirror locates in. Either obtain a washer that the end of the mirror stem will pass through, or do what i did and grind-file about 3mm from the end of the stem. Annoying problem solved!

Steering head noise

If the bearings don't have any "slop" in them it may be one of the fork tubes.
