Most of our manuals are not formatted as PDFs. We have found PDF’s to be clunky and hard to use. Our system is very easy to access in real time without the need to download and open a file. You can easily print any topic you wish.
How can I be sure a Cyclepedia manual will cover the procedures I need to perform?
The contents of every one of our manuals are provided on their respective product pages. For example, if you are interested in our Honda XR650L manual you would visit: http://www.cyclepedia.com/honda-xr600rxr650l-service-guide/
If you needed to adjust your Honda XR650L valves, you can be confident that the Valve Adjustment topic is included in our manual since it is listed in the table of contents. In most cases we can add or enhance a topic upon request. Our manuals are not static and we consider them to be living documents that are constantly changing. We encourage your suggestions on how to improve them. If you have additional concerns whether a topic is covered in sufficient detail please contact us at: http://www.cyclepedia.com/contact-us/

I sold my ATV. Do I need to cancel my account so it doesn’t automatically renew?
Unless advertised as such, your manual subscription will not automatically renew. Once your subscription expires you will be sent a reminder to renew. If you do not renew it will become inactive and you will not be charged again. Some options you have with your existing subscription include transferring it to another manual or to another person. You may transfer your manual subscription to any other manual we have and use up your remaining time there providing there is more than 30 days time remaining on your subscription. You can also sell/give your login to anyone else and your account will be made inactive. We will need their complete info so that we can create a new account for them so they do not have access to your personal information.
I bought a lifetime subscription to one of your manuals but I sold my bike. Can I change my subscription to another bike?
We don’t swap out lifetime subscriptions. You can contact us if you want to pass on the existing subscription to the new owner with the sale of your vehicle. If you think you will be changing bikes often the best option is to get a one year subscription. We do allow for a one time subscription swap on one year subscriptions.
