    We bought a basket case Ninja 500 for my wife and the dealer tried to sell us two different manuals for her bike! Very confusing. We subscribed to Cyclepedia and you helped us find parts for it and get it running again. She is so proud to have put her own motorcycle back together. Cheers! – Margaret & Charles N.

    I am a subscriber to the Cyclepedia Ninja 500 online manual. Thank you for creating such a fantastic guide. I found it very easy to use and laid out in a way that is easy to understand by “non-mechanics”. The photos are bright and from angles that are useful for understanding the process. Your product makes paper based manuals useless and a waste of money. Keep up the great work and please keep adding to your catalog of motorcycle manuals! – Peter

    I just wanted to say thanks for having a great manual online and available to the public. The Kawasaki Ninja 500 is my first bike and I know nothing about motorcycle maintenance. Just looking at the photos and instructions at and I feel like even I could figure some of this stuff out! Huzzah!

    The Kawasaki factory service manual is somewhat more expensive and is written for professional mechanics, as opposed to the motorcycle enthusiast who wrenches in his spare time. The, Clymer and Haynes manuals are written for DIY, self-taught mechanics, so they’ll be a little bit easier to follow. In my personal opinion the is the best of the three and has the advantage of being in electronic format. – (Service Manuals, Which one should I buy?)
