My son and I were able to do our own 600 mile service on both our 650's with the service manual. Piece of cake and we aren't cycle mechanics. Saved lots of money. Well worth the $40 we spent for the manual. Ordered it off the internet. I'll have my son get me the link and post it for you if someone else doesn't already have it.
TomRider, you will notice on that manual it says 2003-2004 AN650K but I haven't found anything different on the 05 model. From past posts in this forum, there isn't an 05 manual available and everyone seems to agree that this one is all you need. I'm sure there are some differences in the 05 bike, but probably not in anything you will be tinkering with. If I'm wrong, someone please correct me.
There is an 05 supplement available for the service manual. It has re done engine specs, and certain procedures and diagrams are different.
I don't think that for 600 mile service, it matters, but that's just from first glance. I'd spend the extra few bucks to get the current info on the 2005's myself.
Interesting. I just tested the link again, and was able to pull up that part number. From the first page, click on Dealer Services, then Parts Finder.
Find the search by part # box, switch to Suzuki, enter the part #, and up she comes. Price is $7.71, by the way.
Did you by chance have Yamaha in the brand field on the search box?
I've done that more than once.
That'd cause a no find.
Brewman, I just ordered that supplement from the web link you gave me. Price $7.71. I ordered it and during the checkout no mention was made of shipping charge. Total was $7.71. A few minutes ago I got an email confirmation of my order and charged me nearly $13 shipping on a $7.71 cent paper supplement. I sent a reply to their email to immediately cancel the order.
Have you ordered from them in the past? Is their shipping charge always so high?
I've never ordered from them, I usually go thru Oneida Suzuki for my online purchases.
But crotchrocket.com has a better parts search engine, so I use it to find a part number, then search for the part on Oneida's website.
From what I've observed on the stuff I've ordered, Oneida is a bit higher priced than crotchrocket- not by much, but a little higher. I think Oneida wants $9.99 for that supplement. But I ordered the main service manual, the supplement, and a couple parts from them all at once. Total of the order was maybe $160 and shipping was about $12.00.
I get small stuff locally, or by combining smaller purchase to get a better return on the shipping charges.
