If that were enough, then why do they print a shop manual for MOST of the bike, but not all of it?
I have shop manuals for Hondas, Yamahas, Suzukis, Kawasakis, Moto Guzzis, BMWs, Triumphs: They all include the brakes. AND all the info for each bike is ONE BOOK! I've had 4 KTMs, each came with a handful of incomplete manuals, plus the LC4 and LC8 shop manuals I aquired in addition: I've got piles of KTM manuals on a shelf I have to sort through every time I want to look at something, AND THE SHOP MANUALS DONT EVEN INCLUDE THE WHOLE BIKE. I'm sorry, that's sloppy!
