Along with the matching Clymer manual, these form a fabulous reference set for work on these ageless BMW twins

Found best price on Amazon.

Buy the Clymer manual instead: it is far more comprehensive and much better illustrated. The modest extra cost is well worth paying!

Good basic guidance to repair and maintenance of a wide variety of R bikes. Even includes obscure R65-specific material.

Haynes BMW R Manual Review March 4 2010
By MultiplexMan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the third manual I have for my BMW R65LS motorcycle.

I have used Haynes manuals extensively in the past.

It is a typical Haynes manual - concise, compact and easy to follow. Some might find the format a bit "tight" compared to a Clymer or factory manual. However all the required information is there. Electrical diagrams are in colour. Photographs and diagrams are clear - if a bit small. Instructions are easy to follow.

Some may find the Haynes physically easier to use with its hard cover and more compact format than a Clymer.

I prefer the Clymer for its layout and its diagrams and photographs. There are simply more of them.

It is a great manual for the price. If you can afford it - get both manuals.

well thought out manual Sept. 15 2009
By J. stoianoff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Haynes manuals are generally well thought out and illustrated based on a complete tear-down and expert rebuild. Haynes has been doing this for many diverse vehicles from cars motos and tractors for many years and have developed an excellent formula for presenting this information so it is useful to all owners from never get your hands dirty to expert mechanics. For me it is presented in a more intelligible format than other manuals eg. Chilton and even factory shop manuals, for this amateur mechanic.

BMW R1100RS Manual Aug. 1 2011
By Gary - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is about the 25th Haynes Manual I've collected over the past 20+ years. The details and accuracy are excellent. It's a high quality hard-bound book. In my experience, the Haynes Manuals are about the best out there, short of the factory service manuals. I have them for nearly every car I've owned in the last 20-30 years as well as most of my friends vehicles. Excellent value.

Haynes lives up to Reputation April 9 2013
By R.W. Kuechenmeister - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent shop and How-too manual. I have used Haynes manual frequesntly over the years and found them to be quite useful. Recommend to the casual mechanic for simple tasks and in conjuction with other manuals for the more complex, in order to get a more complete examination of what is needed. An excellent tool for your motorcycle shop library.
