This is the perfect user-friendly primer on the maintenance and repair of American V-twin motorcycles. For men and women who have the will to service their own bikes and lack only the know-how, this book has it all: basic, easy-to-use information about repairing and maintaining pushrod V-twin motorcycles from someone who really knows the nuts and bolts. Sara Liberte's primer begins with the fundamentals - from wheel size and tire pressure to knowing your shop manual and the tools you'll need - then moves on to the basics of maintenance. Changing oil and other fluids, replacing gaskets, gauging normal wear and tear, inspecting chains and belts and adjusting tension: these are just a few of the topics Liberte covers in complete and clear detail. She also discusses the charging system, battery charging, terminal maintenance, and simple wiring techniques - and, critically, troubleshooting, whether on the road or at the shop.
