Kawasaki KLR 250 Owners Manual PDF

Many new owners of the Kawasaki KLR250 dual sport motorcycle aren't lucky enough to have the original owners manual for their bike. While they could probably find a replacement manual on ebay we just found out that Kawasaki offers a free PDF version of the manual on their website. The link below is for merged version of the manual for the 2005 KLR250. Although that should be suitable for all years of the KLR, you can also check out Kawasaki's site here for other years.

Kawasaki KLR250 PDF Repair and Service Manuals

If there is any one thing that new KLR250 owners ask the most it would be where to get a service or repair manual. While most motorcycle owners can easily order a new Clymer or Haynes repair manual for their bike the KLR 250 dual sport owners aren't so lucky. You see, Clymer and Haynes have never made a service manual for the KLR Jr, nor do they ever intend to. That leaves KLR250 enthusiasts with just one option, a factory service manual. Unfortunately even that isn't so easy because Kawasaki never made an all-in-one KLR250 specific repair manual. Instead KLR 250 owners are forced to buy a KLR600 "base" repair manual and also a KLR250 "supplement" manual. That wouldn't be so bad if both manuals were readily available and at a reasonable price but most owners are left to search ebay for months on end hoping to snatch one up. Thankfully this is no longer a problem as members of the forums have made both manuals available in PDF format! You can download them here.
