5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 30 Dec 2010
By Dolly
The book was as described, arrived in good speed and a perfect present for my husband as he has been using an older version borrowed from a friend. He has already started work on his MX bike using the book as reference. Thankyou.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! 1 April 2008

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been tinkering with motorcycles and dirtbike for 39 years now. I really enjoyed reading and re-reading this book. It contains practical examples on many different models and years of commonly available bikes and also the theory behind how it all works.

I highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to get better at riding and maintaning dirtbikes.

The material in this book may be familiar to seasoned racers and repairmen. But. For me, that is just getting started in motocross, the info I found in these pages was INVALUABLE.

3.0 out of 5 stars edthird 10 Jan 2007
By edthird - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good book and the only one of its kind of which I am aware. On that basis, I can recommend it heartily. However, there is plenty of room for improvement in future editions. Most obviously, the balance of coverage needs to be tipped in the direction of 4-strokes. At present there is a 4-stroke chapter, but it follows three longer chapters on 2-strokes engines and repairs. The other serious weakness, in my view, is the lack of a complete and detailed index. The publisher cut more than a few corners here. There are tons of missing entries: tire, tire pressure, tire selection, tire mounting ... just to give one example. And some entries are silly: "two-stroke engine" with two pages cited, despite the fact that there are three chapters relating to the subject. But all that said, there is plenty of really useful information in the book. The chapter on tuning tips, for instance, is wonderful, as is the extensive range of illustrations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book; not so much info on European bikes. 7 May 2013
By Sharla - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is my second copy of this manual. I loaned out the first and never got it back.

It is a great manual for maintenance and repairs on most dirt bikes, but the info on KTMs is a little thin (and nonexistent on other Euro brands). Other than that I highly recommend it. There are great photos and the language is very clear.
