5.0 out of 5 stars A well-written manual for the BMW motorcycle April 26 2000
By Bibliophile - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying that I've got a 1999 R1100RT and this manual is applicable to my bike as well. I'm not the most mechanically-minded bike owner out there, but this book has great pictures and descriptions that have helped me ease my fears and tackle a few basic tasks (so far). Individual operations are rated on a 1 - 5 scale of difficulty, and tool requirements are clearly spelled out. I regularly check several BMW-related web sites, and they strongly recommend this book also (which is how I found it).
Given that the BMW Shop Manual is over $100, I figured that I'd try this one first. Now that I've received and read it, I see no need to spend the extra $$$ - this manual covers all the stuff I'm likely to attempt on my bike (and a lot more).

4.0 out of 5 stars Beemer Maintenance Guide for Do-It-Yourselfers May 15 2000
By Tom Fuldner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
No manual can be all things to all home mechanics, but the Haynes manual comes close. A five-scale degree-of-difficulty rating for every task tells the reader if their reach is greater than their grasp. So even if your not going to install new pistons, or just change the engine oil, the Haynes book makes great reading for the rider who wants to understand more about that shiny new Beemer in their driveway. For whatever tasks you choose, read thoroughly before opening your toolbox. To do something as straighforward as changing front brake pads requires reading sections from two different chapters, plus a listing of torque settings at yet another page. It saves ink and paper, but not your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute must have for boxer owners Nov. 22 2000
By J-Francois T - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is a must have for BMW boxer owner, even if you don't plan on doing a lot of maintenance on yourself. It goes into complete tear-down and rebuild (God forbid I would attempt such a thing on my own!) so you can look through what your local dealer will be doing to your machine and you don't: 1. look like a dork when they talk to you about some maintenance procedures 2. get embezzeled by one of those crook-type mechanics.
Don't get me wrong - there is some stuff even the most unexperienced mechanic can take care of in this book. It covers the steps of all recommended maintenance schedules and a lot of these steps anybody can do. But it goes into much more detail also.
4.0 out of 5 stars Best motorcycle repair manual I've found. Dec 17 2013
By Edward Donfrancesco - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've had a Clymer manual but it didn't contain the level of detail and organization of the Hanes manual. It's written for amateur mechanics all the way to expert mechanics and is denoted by a simple 1 - 5 rating system so you know in advance if the job is something you want to tackle or leave to the experts.
4.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly what I wanted Dec 7 2012
By FussyBuyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The ad said 1990-1997 but instead I got one for 1990-2006 with lots of other BMW bikes in it too including the R1150 series. It still has the info for my R1100R but way too many procedures for other bikes. I also have the Clymer for 1990-1997 and it has just those years. It got a 5 star.
