This book covers all the skills needed to do basic maintenance and repairs on your V-twin powered motorcycle. From adjusting the clutch cable to installing brake pads, this book explains in both words and photos how to safely do your own work. Instead of taking the bike back to the dealer or shop where you bought it, roll it into your garage and get out the tools. Written by Mark and Paul Shadley, long time owners of the Shadley Brothers shop, this guide to basic repair explains not only how to repair and adjust various parts of the motorcycle, but how stuff works. Colored diagrams explain the brake hydraulics and the best way to adjust the primary chain. Additional chapters include fork overhaul, installation of shock absorbers, and alignment and adjustment of the final drive. The brothers even cover your choice of tools and any special equipment needed along the way. When you re trying to learn something for the first time, there s nothing like a good photo, or series of photos, that show exactly how the operation is performed.
