Hey you, you like BMWs? Are you you good with a wrench? Do you like to save money? If you answered yes to any or all of those questions, then we have some good news for you. Haynes Publishing recently released a new workshop manual covering all BMW 999cc S1000RR based bikes from 2010 to 2017. This manual includes details on the S1000RR sportbike (2010-17), the S1000R naked bike (2014-17), and the S1000XR adventure-tourer (2015 – ’17). As a bonus, our very own Bryan Wood had a hand in this manual's production.
The new manual comes in both hardcopy and digital form, and is full of the kind of information Haynes is known for. The online manuals include all the content from the printed version along with the additional benefits of color photographs throughout, searchable menus, and quick links. The online edition provides access to all the same service and repair information as the book version via your desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone.

Every Haynes manual is written from the hands-on experience gained from stripping down and rebuilding a bike in the Haynes Project Workshop. The practical step-by-step instructions and clear photos are easy to follow, and provide information on maintenance, repairs, troubleshooting, fault finding and testing, and Haynes tips to make many tasks easier. And, more important than ever, color wiring diagram for all electrical circuits.
This manual is the first for these BMW models aimed directly at the home servicer, and is the only one currently available for them besides the factory service manual. That book is written strictly with the professional in mind, and might be a bit much for Joe Shadetree. The printed manual is priced at $45.95 including free shipping via Priority Mail. The online version is available on a subscription basis at $29.99 a year and includes immediate access.
But wait! Bryan notes that the cover price is discounted for the launch to $40.95, with free shipping from Haynes.com via priority mail in time for Christmas. Happy Holidays from Haynes.
