Default Question about GSX600/650 F GSX750 F Models

Hello guys,
My wife and I ride a 2003 GSX600 and 2000 GSX750, I have a Service Manual that says that will cover:
GSX600F 1998-2002,
GSX750F 1998-2002 and
GSX750 1998-2001

So my question is, can I use this manual for our bikes? I'm a bit confused now with this 600 and 600F models, same for 750.

Any input will be really appreciated.

The GSX-F is the Katana line; the GSX-R is the sport bike.

I believe the only difference between the '02 and later models of the 600 Katana is the tail section; mechanically they are the same.

So your service manual should be fine.

There are some other minor differences between 98-02 vs 03+ models. The front end has some minor differences in measurements and spacing, the tail section as mentioned, and other minor things.

The manual can still be easily used though, as most of the differences won't matter between the models unless your trying to swap parts around.

Thank you guys, my main concern is engine specs for ex : Valve clearance values, torque bolts values, part replacement number (although I don't remember having this info available in this Manual). As I said before, I have a 600 and 750 and I don't know if this kind of values would be the same. For instance I need to do a Valve clearance check/adjustment on my 750, and I need to change the Sprockets and chain, along with Carb check (if I dare to) on my 600.
Finally, and I know this is a very, very old topic in here, but not harm in asking I guess, any chance I could get the Service manual for GSX 600 2003

Again, thank you for your replies.

Valve clearances should be the same. Most torque values are the same - the book should mention where they differ. For example, they're different where the shock bolts up to...I don't know what its called...the bottom bit that the dogbones also bolt to...but the manual tells you what values for which model.
Sprockets I believe are different between the 2 bikes, but again, book should tell which bike gets what tooth count.

I have a 2006 600. I've had it for 4.5 years and done all work on it using the same manual you have. It'll work for your 600
