Need a repair manual for my 2013 V Star 950. Are they basically all the same or is there one that is better than the others? Recommendations would be appreciated.

Chilton, Clymer and Haynes are the easy choices and they're OK for the average shade-tree mechanic but nothing beats the Yamaha factory service manual... nothing is as in-depth and accurate.

I've got a Haynes and I don't really like it. It will tell you things like how to disassemble the crankcase, but I still haven't found out a clear section that explains common procedures like how to adjust the valves, for example. I found the info online, printed it off, and stuck it in the manual.

google Vstar 950 factory service manual
most of the factory manuals have been scanned and posted online for free in pdf format

The primary difference is the table of contents and index links dont usually work, so you have to page thru the manual to find the page you want.

If you buy the factory manual, its a CD, same format, and the links all work.

Thanks for all the replies. A member sent me the Yamaha Service Manual on line. Mission accomplished.
