2012 C14 service manual
« on: December 01, 2012, 01:39:06 pm »
I have been on Kawasaki's web site looking for a service manual for my Connie.  I've checked 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years and service manuals are not available.  Does someone know where I can purchase a service manual?

IIRC, the only place to get legal copies is purchased through a dealer.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

I have found the web site for Angel Ride Videos (www.angelridevideos.com) through the forum.  Does anyone know if this video set will work for my 2012 model?

Here is a link for the manual via Ron Ayers: http://www.ronayers.com/ProductDetails/N/687/SKU/1773026

Fred's videos (angel ride) are worth their weight in gold! Highly recommended!! I believe the only changes between 2010 and up are cosmetic.

Yes, they cover 2008-2013 model years. The only change made since 2010 has been the color.

I keep hearing that it's on ebay, but have had no luck in finding it there.

Would someone PM me a link?

Thanks!  -Jeff

Just a note and not trying to start a debate here. But any service manual off eBay in PDF form is probably an illegal product and could be considered a copyright infringement. COG does not condone this type of action and prefer if it is not openly encouraged on the forum. This is something better discussed in private communications.  ;)

For those looking for a paper version for the 2012 C14, I had a fantastic experience with http://www.service-shop-repair-manual.com/ since I (also) could not seem to get it directly through Kawasaki off their website (not available).

Received the printed copy in about 10 days.  It cost $53 and was received in pristine condition.  Bound on the edge, shrink-wrapped, wrapped again in plastic wrap (food wrap), packaged in cardboard envelopes, inside a Tyvek envelope, inside a plastic mailing envelope!

I unwrapped it simply to inspect, but since gaining a copy of the PDF from my Dealer (separate story), I am returning it.

Full money-back guarantee and great email service in keeping me informed of my order as it was processed.  I'm only out the modest return shipping.

Rusty,

You should be able to find a PDF version on line for under 50 bucks. I think I purchased one for 12-14 bucks.

As was said, these are likely not authorized by Kawasaki .




To the OP, your best, legal bet is to go to the dealer and buy one.  They are under 100$ and well worth it.
