    I own a 1999 Kawasaki KLR650 dual sport motorcycle and just want to say that the Cyclepedia KLR manual has been a lifesaver. I bought the Kawasaki Factory KLR650 manual, the Clymer KLR650 manual and yours. Time after time I find that the Cyclepedia manual is the best out of the three. Just one of many examples – I was replacing my rear brake pads and neither the Kawasaki manual nor the Clymer manual had pictures that showed me how the spring clip went back on – but Cyclepedia did. Thanks! – James F.
