My S40 Factory Service Manual is on order.  If it is ANYTHING like my Z400 manual, you will find it a TON more complete than any Clymer or Chilton type could ever be (in the last 20 years I have used them, they have usually left me wanting more information during a project).  And the pictures in my Z400 FSM are INCREDIBLE.  I found it a non issue to tear the top of my engine apart and put in a high compression piston and intake cam in my Z cause the manual was so complete.  

Same goes for my 2001 Jeep Service manual and 1992 Ford Mustang FSM, no Chilton or Clymer can touch them.

As ALWAYS, you get what you pay for, get the FSM !!!  ....and a good torque wrench, always torque everything to spec.


Your exactly right...for people like you and I.  I do plan to "pop the top" on 2 Savages this winter....

But that is what I try to explain to people because most riders only want to know how to do their own maintenance, but not their own overhauls.  They would like to understand the engine better, but have no intention of putting a micrometer on their conrod journal.  I understand that, and so I tend to try to dissuade them from the SSM at it's higher price and consider the Clymer instead.

That way they won't blame me for money spent incorrectly.  Then if they decide that the need to know more, they also know their options.  Besides, I understand that Clymer recently updated their manual, so it might even be better.

Yep, wiring harnesses can be a head scratcher, but the best tool is just a simple digital multimeter.  That combined with a little bit of basic DC theory, and it can be figured out.  At least for testing a component like a switch or bulb.

I guess the challenge is for something like a rectifier, because then you need a schematic since it is actually a "source" of power.  Without one, those harnesses are a real pain because wires go in, and you have to know where they "come out".

Hi Greg,
This is what I am facex with, and figure if's my first step to get this baby running again.  Thanks for the diagrams, they will definitely be a help!  For more info on this bike read the introduction for Sad Savage.  Any recommendations on where to start or what not to do will be greatly appreciated!  Thanks in advance.

And in a "real time" photo, it looks like this... Roll Eyes

I left the regulator on the fender...

According to your photo, looks like I'm missing this Decomp controller which is dead center in the middle of you harness picture, little black box connected to the white connector. I tried zooming in but not sure how many wires and their color.
