Default Clymer or Haynes Manual

How come the latest manual to be bought for a 750 Katana is 2002?
I can't seem to find one later than this date.
Also, I am having problems with katriders search function.
So please be gentle. I'm too old for safe spaces.

There are very minimal differences in the 03+ model Katana from what will be covered in the upto 02 manual. It works fine for the bike for most aspects. If you have any mechanical understanding at all, the differences are easy to spot and also easy to work out.

Thanks guys.
I will buy the pre 2003 manual.
I like to have a book in my hand before maintenance.
I adjusted the valves on my KLR using a Clymer.
Also did the doohickey.
First time looking at this site on a desktop.
It seems like I might be able to print out a free version.
I'll see.

Do what I do. Download it and print the pages I need. That way if I get the pages oily, it doesn’t matter..

Those links that are "sticky" for the manuals......
WHen you click on them, they want me to download a bunch of other crap.
I already have PDF and it is up to date.

Fyi, you don't have to worry about shim valves if you have an '02. Valve adjustment will be much easier
