Default 2005 Katana Service Manuals?

Hello fellow Katana Riders!

I'm looking to learn how to do some of the basic stuff by myself (oil-change, bulb replacements, wheel removal, etc.) and I am looking a couple of books that would help me.

Does anyone know where I can find a 2005 Katana 750 repair manual? I looked at Amazon.com and I found some DIY guides but only for older models.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you.
I did a search for the words "repair" and "manuals" and I get too many responses.
Any recommendation on how to narrow down the search to find the link you mention?

Now I have another newbie question :

The latest models I can see for a Katana (in that post or others) is 2002.
Mine is a 2005.
Does that mean that there are no newer improvements done and I can use the 2002 or does that mean I need to get another one?

Thanks again!

Just to continue on with an older thread, the wiring diagram will be a little different since Suzi made some changes to the later models.

This and that link doesn't work anymore.
