New LA rider and 250 owner
I passed the MSC in April and put a down payment on an '09 at a local shop. Unfortunately, the mechanic at the shop never made the agreed upon repairs, so I took the bike as-is. I plan to make repairs myself starting with installing a carb and battery. I have a few questions.
What is the best repair manual? I'm looking for a variety of opinions here
What is the best online place to buy reliable parts? Any good Ebay merchants?
I"m not a mechanic, but I know my way around a toolbox and I have a couple mechanic friends who have offered to help. I'm in Los Angeles, so if anyone can recommend good local shops for parts, let me know.
