Hello all,

I need to do a gear shift lever replacement and would like some advice on which books and manuals on CD are good to buy.

I bought a manual on CD from Ebay one already for 15 bucks and didn't like it. It has some good stuff... But I need something a little more step by step...

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Buy the Suzuki shop manual. It won't give you step by step instructions, but has almost all the info you'll ever need.

p.s. The bolt holding the gear shift lever likely has to be completely removed to get the lever off the shift shaft. Careful loosening the bolt as it's easy to slip and scratch painted or anodized surfaces.

i don't think you need to get a manual for figuring out how to replace the gear shift lever. when i broke mine, i just starting taking stuff off and pretty soon it will be clear which bolts you have to remove. you might need a vise to hold the peg and shifter assembly when you take off the final bolt because that one bolt seems to be bonded with locktight (maybe i'm just weak)

however, if you do need a manual, i have a shop manual for the SV650S that i can loan you. it's not actually a book, more like a bunch of loose-leaf papers attached together with a 3 ring binder. if you have access to a photocopier, you could make a copy really easy
