I hope you enjoy working on your own motorcycle as a hobby; often it is a must with these old machines. If you have a reputable shop in your area that loves Airheads as much as we all do, then they can be a good resource. But, if you're like me, I would not allow anyone within 200 miles to touch my bike; I do all my own work. As disston mentioned, the internet can be a good resource; always remember, "Everything you read on the internet is true.", said no one ever. Even though it can be tedious and painful to wade through his articles, I do like Snowbum's website - http://bmwmotorcycletech.info/techni...icles-list.htm . The Airheads website has some good info - https://www.airheads.org/index.php?o...d=8&Itemid=102 . Disston mentioned the Haynes and Clymer manuals, I have both, and I also like the Chitech manuals - I have all of them.
