As an intermediate level "hacker" when it comes to repairs, I had always been more comfortable having the local dealer take care of routine maintenance. Prior to receiving this book I was only changing the oil and transmission fluid on my bike. However, "armed" with this new found information I now cover the bike from front to end! The layout and excellent photographs are easy for even ME to understand!! There is not a lot of industry jargon involved, making it simple for the "mechanically handicapped" to understand. My only complaint is that the book is not longer and I am impatiently awaiting "Volume II."

This is the one book to buy if you want to start spinning wrenches on your Evo Harley. The book is very up-to date--even recommending using a Twin Cam oil filter for Softails for screening out finer particles. The section on de-federalizing your CV carb is worth the price of the book alone; as is the advice for a "five-quart" oil change. The book is very easily understood with its color photographs on every single page. I only wish there were more of them, since some of the projects could use greater specifc detail.

If you can only afford one Harley Book, buy this one. It's the best of it's kind I've yet seen. Just one of the projects is worth the price. It' clear and well written with color pictures that are worth an additional thousand words. Reading this book will get you all fired up to spend some bucks and dig into that machine, so it's fun for the arm-chair mechanics, too. After a few projects you will feel comfortable with the mechanical challenges that a Harley can throw at you. If you do several, you will have a stong, well tended bike. It can save you a bundle if you want to hot-rod that EVO and you get bragging rights along with projects. I can't think of a better way to use twenty bucks.

Format: Paperback
I was impressed with the detailed compilation of tools suggested to have in your garage but more specifically that they are individually detailed for each project.
I was also impressed with the evaluation of each project in terms of time and cost along with the sidebars explaining alternatives to consider while you are in the middle of a particular project.
It even includes dyno tests results comparing various similar products, and much more...
I wish this book was on the market two years ago before I paid to have done on my bike much of what's described within its covers. Now I realize I could have done most of work myself.
Just performing ONE project will save you more in professional labor costs than you'll pay for this book.
If you own a scoot with an EVO engine and you like to tinker, this book must be added to your garage library.
This book is definitely a five-star publication when used along side the manufacturer's service manual. I rated it four-stars because it didn't always detail step-by-step instructions for each project. The author apparently left those steps for the reader to find in the service manuals. -rne-

Format: Paperback
Excellent book on maintaining your Harley. I've owned Harleys for ten years and have done my own work; but I thought I knew it all. The book has glossy pages and clear color photos. It's hard to believe the cost of the book in material to print is less than 20 bucks. I didn't give a 5-star because coverage of advanced topics such as a cam change is an overview. There's more to changing a cam than what's presented in the book or the service manual. Also, there is a handy reference table of all sorts of data. The book covers design changes of the Evolution engine which I found very interesting. So if you have a older Evo bike you might want to start there.

This book is a must for all novice motorcycle repairman. Iteach harley-davidson repair for the U.A.W. and use this book. Thisbook is not only good for harley's, it will work well for all motorcycles. The book is easy to understand for everyone. The tips on things like using a ball point pen to bleed brake lines, is priceless. The only drawback to the book is, it's not longer! Love IT!

Other manuals on Harley's have been disappointing. But this one is very well done. Color photos are great. This book not only explains what to do to get more performance out of your Evo motor, but what the results will be. Very well done!
