I plan on self servicing my 2000 996 this summer and I was wondering which service manuals you found most helpful. My first project is to change the coolant overflow tank...but I would like a manual which also detailed more complex service. So, what do you suggest?

Re: Service manual of choice (yellowduck996)

LT Snyder's 2nd or 3rd edition manual and the haynes.
between the two you can usually get what your looking for

Re: Service manual of choice (yellowduck996)

I used the Haynes to do my 12k mile service. It was my first time doing anything major on this bike (996) and it went smoothly. It'll walk you through disassembling the engine if you are so inclined.

I do plan on picking up LT Snyder's book, as well.

Re: Service manual of choice (jasont_ot)

The first manual I got was the Haynes, and thought it was pretty good, then picked up a factoy Ducati manual. The factory manual seemed harder to understand, and everything is in drawings (didn't really care for it too much at the time). I then got LT's "old" manual, right before I did my 12K service, and it was great (it really cleared up alot for me)...What I'm finding now, is that the more familiar I get with the bike, and the more "advanced" things I do to it, the more I use and rely on the factory manual. If you can swing it, get all three...then you're covered.
