That's generally the trade-off. You can usually get the manual for less money at Ron Ayers, but it took weeks to arrive. Ron Ayers has the best prices on a lot of stuff, but they don't stock anything. When you order from them, they order from their source.CINCNORAD said:
Suzuki doesn't update the entire manual each year.What you will get is a K3 manual, but at the back it should have an addendum for any specs that changed for the K4.billmeek said:No problem. I tried finding it on the Ron Ayers website and ran into the same issue as you. The only way I located it was searched the forums, found the part number, and then did a part lookup on the Ron Ayers site. They really need to update their site to make it more "user friendly" in finding parts.
Please post the part number for the AN400 2004 service manual.garyw0cki said:I emailed Ron Ayers asking for the part number of a AN 400 manual, also asked if it was in stock. They kindly sent me the part number and the price, about 59 bucks plus shipping. They did not answer whether or not it was in stock, I'll bet it wasn't. :roll:

I just got the official Suzuki 400 shop manual and there are a couple things I don't like about it. First, the manual doesn't cover simple procedures very well. It seems to assume every one of us are going to perform a complete engine over haul and so there are pages and pages of engine removal and tear down.
What about a procedure on changing the belt and changing the brake pads? It seems everything is described as a complete tear down and so you have to read between the lines to figure out performing some of the most routine maintenance tasks. I guess this is one of the reasons for this forum. Maybe a Cymer or Haynes version will come out and we'll really have a practical manual.
