ok gear heads- which in your opinion is the better manual for the 2006-2010 R1200R? Having never bought a manual in my life I thought I'd ask-- comments?

I have the Haynes for my ‘12 GSA, and I like it. Easy to understand and has just exactly the info I need todo the maintenance. So........
I just ordered one for my new to me ‘08 R12R.

Another excellent option is Jim Von Baden's website with maintenance tutorials, tools, pictures, videos & CDs available. Jim's a great guy giving back to his fellow Beemer Boxer riding community.


Personally I'd go here vs. Haynes or Clymer manuals, although all have a place and you never know which will provide just what you need for a given situation.

Cheers, Dave

I’ve used both over the years for different bikes. I currently have a Haynes for my 2013 R1200R. Both manuals are good. (I do think Haynes bought out Climer, but can’t be sure.)

The Clymer manual covers only 2007-2009. There are no Clymer manuals for subsequent years.
