Get the Kawasaki Shop Manual.  I picked up one on ebay for cheap.  They are often available:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Kawasaki-Service-Manual-2008-ZG1400-A8F-B8F-Concours-14-ABS-99924-1379-01-/281465736165?pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories&hash=item4188aa4be5&vxp=mtr

The 08 and 09 are the same so the 2008 manual will work.  I'm not even sure there is an 09 manual, there may be but I've never seen one.

Service manuals are purchased items but I think Kawasaki provides owners manuals online at no cost.

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

The owners manual is a free PDF download from Kawasaki but the printed one is not free.  Again, you can find these on ebay .

Keep in mind that Kawasaki manuals are copyrighted, and some of the offerings on eBay are bootleg copies. Caveat emptor.

Agreed!  Especially the spiral-bound and the CD copies.  But a printed copy is likely to be legit.  The genuine Kawasaki service manuals are "perfect bound" softcover with an image of the C14 in B&W on the cover.  Counterfeiters usually don't go through this amount of work.
