The Dyna has been the best performer in the Harley big twin lineup since its introduction in the 1990s, with lighter weight and better handling. The Sportster has introduced countless riders to the Harley lifestyle and is a genuine modern classic. These new manuals join Clymer’s coverage of earlier Sportster and Dyna models, as well as the Harley-Davidson’s V-rod, Softail, and Touring series.
Every Clymer Manual is based on teardown and reassembly of the actual machines covered, so the warnings, notes, and instructions are from first-hand experience. The hundreds of pictures, diagrams and illustrations are the genuine article and produced just for these books, not recycled factory stock photos. When possible, Clymer even includes shortcuts and instructions for making your own versions of expensive factory tools. Also included in every Clymer Manual is a full-color wiring diagram to make troubleshooting easy and adding electrical accessories foolproof. All of these features and more are also in the online edition, accessible via smartphone, tablet, or computer.
