    Hi There

    luv this forum, but would like to stress to all the new vn owners, if you want to save yourself heaps of cash, go out and by a Gregory's or similiar manual.
    Has literally saved me thousands over the years

    Cheers

    or... just drop a line and even if the post has been put up before one of us will try to help the best we can. and the best way to learn is to ask as many questions as you can then give it a go. if you get stuck ask more questions.
    you will eventually get enough confidence to try most jobs

    Yeah, and if you can't find it in the manual, just ask. We won't bite... unless you want to know if a pod is better than an SS cai. ^^

    Gregory's manual. Best value for money I've had in a long time (since I got my exhaust done!). The Gregory's is a VERY helpful bit of gear. It's helped me do a lot, and I've probably saved close to $1000 already (12-18 months). And you get the satisfaction of knowing things are done properly - you don't have to trust that someone you don't know has done the right thing . . .

    Is there much difference between the Gregory's and Haynes manuals?

    Nope. They're much of a muchness. There are minor differences, though, and I don't know what they are . . .

    Some people find the haynes to be easier to understand, some prefer the gregories.

    Whatever you've been brought up on...
