03' 600RR
03' 636 (SOLD)

Which Manual

Need some help; I'm looking at getting a repair manual for my 03' 600rr and saw there are two different models. First is by Clymer and the other is by Haynes. Whats the difference in the two other than different authors and Haynes is hardback and Clymer is paperback.

Which of the two would you purchase and why?

I'd go only with the Honda Factory Service Manual for that specific year and model.

Never seen Clymer before. Is that motorcycle specific? I know chilton has to be the worst piece of I ever bought but that was for a 2001 Mustang GT. I'll never use that again. Couldn't even tell you how to change the spark plugs right. Haynes was better. I can't vote since I don't know Clymer.

Try looking on amazon for some reviews or call one of the sponsors to ask. I'd get the factory manual.

Don't buy manuals....get the factory manual, or let someone else fix your bike. :2sense:

factory manual would be the best bang for your buck. but ive had clymer and there pretty good. but also depends on what your trying to do.
