Just brought home a 2011 C-14.  Only a 100 miles so far and already love this bike. Replaced my old bmw k1200lt.  What’s a good service manual out there for this bike? Thanks!

As far as I know, Kawasaki is the only producer of a manual.   As stated above, one can look on ebay.  They come up for sale occasionally in the For Sale board.   You can post in the Wanted board asking for one.


Fred Harmon has produced some 'entertainment' DVDs on maintenance of the bike.  These come up occasionally for sale.

Welcome Oily, from another newb to the forum!  You can get a downloadable pdf of the service manual here for $13.95: https://servicemanualwarehouse.com/motorcycle-service-manuals/kawasaki/2011/.

I got one for my '12.  It's searchable, which is handy since for many repairs you have to jump around in it a bit.  Also, you can just print out the pages you need for a given job.  A lot handier than a hardcopy IMO.
