Question Shop Manual Suggestions

Does anyone have any suggestions for a good shop manual. I have a Big Dog Mastiff/Swing Arm/ SS 107. Clymer is junk and Haynes is worse, not only have I found contradictory info but flat out wrong.

Get an OEM Harley factory service manual for your bike (or nearest year/model for a custom). only way to go. Available at any dealer, or for $78 at Zoom Cycle (888) 316-1994.

eg, VTwin #48-0992, Harley #99482-90: 1985-1990 FXST, FLST

You can also get OEM factory Parts Manuals, shows exploded diagrams and all part numbers.

e.g., VTwin #48-0972, Harley #99455-86A: 1984-86 FXST

I'd get that stock Harley manual. I still got that one for my 80 sportster and it gives me all the details I need for the stock parts. It's just that because my ignition is for earlier bikes and my front end is a 45 springer I got a manual that covers sportsters from the fifties to the seventies. That one helps in some cases, but I'd have never got my starter cleaned and stuck new brushs on it using that last manual. My stock one told me everything I had to know and I finally got that done today.
13 = luck
