Clymer workshop manual for the GL1200. Clymer repair manuals are written specifically for the do-it-yourselfer. With step-by-step procedures, detailed photography and extensive use of exploded views, each manual is based on the complete disassembly of the machine. Unlike OEM manuals, which are purposely designed for the professional technician, with an impressive array of specialized tools, equipment and knowledge, Clymer manuals are designed for the first-time user.
