Haynes isn't perfect. But it's a BOOK, so I would have it just because of this  :002:
With my other bikes, I was using (and still use) equally factory service manuals and Haynes book.

:0461:

:084: IMO Haynes is best for the beginner or basic level DIY'er due to all the pictures. Most factory produced manuals tend to only have line drawings and are geared to having a base knowledge of mechanical principles and procedures. I agree that for a confident DIY'er owning and referencing both is a useful option to go for.
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

My second bike is 2003 Suzuki GSX1400, which is my wrenching and tuning bike. Taking engine apart, and (most important) putting it back - sometimes Haynes is not enough.
But I'm totally with you, what for most of maintenance it's more then perfect.

Have some other book's for cars, and they cant be compared with Haynes.

If I was still working I'd have printed off the on-line manual, I downloaded the freebie that covered all models up to '18. I have to look that up on 'puter, bit of a pita when we only want to check a torque figure, much easier to flick through the Haynes with our greasy mitts for a quick reference.

Downside is, Haynes manuals aren't the quality paper & hardback they were 10 years ago.

Unlikely many of us will be rebuilding our engines like we did on our old Brit iron, these bikes won't be worth the cost of the rebuild by the time they're worn out. Hopefully.

Yes, seen that, it's good as long as nothing has changed in the model updates. There was similar kicking about for the 1050 but it wasn't kept up to date. Front calliper torques changed from 35Nm to 55Nm, I always check. Haynes can get it wrong.

I have just received a Haynes manual that covers Tiger 800 models 2010 to 19 and am pleased to say that it does cover the Gen 3 bikes. I went straight to the wiring diagrams and Front brake (Brembo) sections to check on this.
As previously stated by others the illustrations are not good quality and the paper is wafer thin but is a supplement to my Gen 2 digital workshop manual and what I managed to extract from the Tritun site.

Got my Haynes couple of days ago, good for quick reference. Shame they're paperback & poor quality paper. Nowt like earlier, still got Haynes for my long gone '99 ST955 in hardback. I'd have happily paid a few quid more for the quality of old.

Yes... I picked up a Haynes a few weeks ago and although I feel they did a good job with the content, the quality of the physical book itself is very poor compared to what they offered in the past   (it is now phone book quality).   Kinda sad for us old guys that prefer printed books to pdf's.
