Twenty years ago, the introduction of the Suzuki 750 GSX-R led to the phrase 'race replica'. Road machines were not that different to those race teams were enjoying huge success with in World Superbike and Endurance racing. Today, thanks to continual development, the GSX-R models are still at the cutting edge of biking.
There have been many updates to the 600 and 750 models and radical changes now occur every two years to keep them competitive on the track. The 2006 models were very different from their predecessors - shorter, lower, lighter, more powerful and readily identified by their under-slung stubby exhaust. For 2008, the major improvements were in software rather than hardware - with selectable engine mapping and modified fuel injection.
Haynes, the world renowned publisher of manuals for everything from cars and motorcycles to washing machines and babies, has released a new book to complement perfectly ownership of the Suzuki GSX-R models from 2006 to 2009. Whether you want to undertake routine maintenance, troubleshooting or major overhauls, a Haynes Workshop Manual has it covered.
The new Suzuki GSX-R600 & 750 Haynes Workshop Manual will help you get the most from your Suzuki - in several ways. It can help you decide what work must be done (even if you choose to get it done by a dealer). It also provides information on routine maintenance and servicing, and gives a logical course of action and diagnosis when random faults occur. However, it is hoped that you will use the manual by tackling the work yourself. On simpler jobs it may even be quicker than booking the motorcycle into a dealer. Perhaps most important, a lot of money can be saved by avoiding the costs a dealer must charge to cover its labour and overheads.
The Suzuki GSX-R600 & 750 (06 - 09) manual has illustrations and descriptions to show the function of the various components so that their layout can be understood. Tasks are described and photographed in a clear step-by-step sequence with details of any special tools required and a complexity rating is given. There are sections on pre-ride checks and routine maintenance and instructions for straightforward tasks such as checking fluid levels and filter changes, plus repair information such as clutch plate renewal and engine overhaul.
- Step-by-step procedures with hundreds of illustrations and photographs.
