Harley-Davidson® Service Manual

Duration: 2:47

For over 10 years, Fix My Hog has been producing the #1 how-to videos on Harley maintenance and performance.

One of our goals is to bring the Harley-Davidson service manual to life. We are another resource for you to go to when working on your pride and joy. Tools, manuals, videos, and products are all part of what you will need.

Haynes and Clymer have been producing how-to manuals for over 54 years. Writing each manual takes 30 man-weeks, with authors working as teams to shorten the production time and avoid fatigue during the difficult process. Hundreds of photographs accompany each manual’s step-by-step instructions. The books are written from the actual experience of Haynes’ own expert personnel using only a basic set of tools and presented in a style that any DIYer can follow, even a beginner. The DIYer can save a great deal of time and money, not to mention feeling proud of the job, by using a Haynes or Clymer book or online.

      Hi Mark, As long as you have one as a reference you should be in good shape.

    I have always bought a Harley service manual and a parts manual, I’m not all that convinced by the Haynes manual, but clymer always make a good back up manual to accompany the Harley factory service manual, I don’t know as well, but the older Harley manuals seems better than recent ones, the older manuals seemed to baby step you more through the process.

    As a professional technical writer that works directly with manufacturers creating product support materials such as Service Manuals, your endorsement of Clymer/Haynes manuals is curious. At best, these “knockoff” manuals cover only the basics and are “generalized” to cover multiple model years with little regard to individual model year differences much less model production changes. Manufacturers invest a huge amount of money developing product support for training and warranty purposes only to have “posers” and YouTube idiots undermining their efforts. People, think about this, if you use a non-factory manual (or random video) and things don’t turn out right, who do you blame? The correct answer is the manufacturer!

    Motorcycles, like nearly everything else, have become much more complicated due to integrated systems. If you want to change a tire or find a broken wire, buy the $30 Clymer manual. If you want to truly maintain, diagnose or repair YOUR bike, buy the $250 genuine factory manual. It’s worth it!
