Unlike Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) manuals, Clymer repair manuals are written specifically for the do-it-yourselfer. OEM manuals are purposely designed for the professional technician, who often has at their disposal an impressive array of specialized tools, equipment and knowledge. During the production of a manual, Clymer completely disassembles and reassemble the models covered in each book and provide easy-to-follow instructions. This allows Clymer manual users to safely and efficiently service and repair the motorcycle -- in a real setting -- not the ideal setting of a fully equipped professional shop. It is this very experience that sets a Clymer repair manual apart from its factory counterparts.
