It is SO vague and there are no pictures, just really lame drawings.
What manual do you folks reccomend? Haynes, Clymer, other?
I love the places where it says things like " unbolt and remove..., reverse process to install..." sometimes there are some very odd fasteners, or tricky way to get the part out...but no...just "remove".
When you reccomend a manual, keep in mind that my bike is currently an RT, but is now stripped to basic chassis and being built up as a GS modified.
I have a Clymer manual. I use it from time to time. I usually just research everything online.
I prefer the Clymer since it was given to me for free. If someone gave me a Haynes manual, I'd use that.
