It's kind of dated as it shows how to kickstart a 650 with the old bird's nest airbox and shutter, but all of the riding exercises should still be good for new bikes... 8)


Thanks for sharing! I'm trying to find the best info possible to learn my new Ural cT (planning to take a course but not until October).

Can someone familiar with both tell me if this PDF have pretty much the same info as the Yellow Book? Or would it still be worth buying the yellow book?

Thanks

It is pretty much the same as the yellow book, just ignore the instructions on how to kick start a 650.
