Need service manual

Anyone know where to get a Harley Davidson service manual for a 2003 Road King thats fuel injected??? Not the cylmer service manual. An actual Harley Service manual. I want to order one online but cannot find any. Or even better finding a manual online that I can download and print myself.

You should be able to find the manual you need from J&P Cycles. www.jpcycles.com or 1-800-397-4844. The official HD factory book run between $40 & $60...Just curious, why not a Clymer's? I've always found the Clymer's for my FXR just as thorough as the factory book.

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!

OTB is the Clymer one just as good as the official one? Basically I need it for the routine maint. so i can work on my own stuff. Seeing that this is my first Harley I want to make sure I don't screw things up. Changing the oil was easy but there are 2 other fluids I need to change and i don't know the amount to put in or the type of fluid. I make it a habit to buy a service manual for every bike I own.

Buying a service manual is a good habit. I do the same. In most cases I buy a Clymer's. I've always found them to be good. As far as my experience goes the Clymer's manuals sometimes end up being better than the factory book. Especially older Japanese bikes where the factory books are translated to English literally and can be VERY confusing. In the case of my '91 Harley FXR I find the Clymer's manual is just as good as the factory book ...I have both.
I've used Haynes manuals for my old Brit bikes where Clymer's are out of print and hard to find but, I find them to be incomplete compared to Clymer's manuals I've had.
If you can do it inexpensively, multiple manuals are good to have so you can compare and maybe come up with an easier alternative or a confusing paragraph might be explained clearer.
Dat's my 3 cents worth. Good luck.
