Any body know of a site that gives service specs( valve lash, ring end gap, etc.) for bikes. Have tried many resources, but all I find are sites selling manuals. Aarrgh!

I have tried this before as well. It is impossible to find that kind of information for free. What kind of bike do you have? Someone around here is bound to have a service manual for it. Either that or you'll have to break down and buy a service manual.

The specs/shop manuals for some makes/models/years are available on-line via more or less clandestine means... Some Yamaha tech manuals can be found on the R6 MessageNet at www.r6messagenet.com. (http://www.r6messagenet.com.) Some Gixxer shop manuals can be found at the Gixxer Forum, www.gixxer.com. (http://www.gixxer.com.)

I've never been able to locate any of the Kawasaki manuals in on-line source, and I've never tried looking for Honda.

The Yamaha and Gixxer manuals are basically PDF copies of the scanned manual pages. The Gixxer shop manuals in hard copy form can also be had from eBay for around $20.

For every bike I've owned so far, I've been able to find the service manual online in PDF form... the best place to look is usually in forums dedicated to your bike. If you can't find it by searching the forums, just post something saying you're looking for it, and usually some people have it and will send it to you.

Well, I'll give it a shot. I'm working on a 93 Yamaha FM-80 4-wheeler, very exciting. I need a the ring end gap tolerance and the secret for getting the valve rocker arms out of the head.

Colin

thanks to all that gave advice.
