About a week ago I received two old manuals, I bought 70s versions of both the Clymer and Haynes manuals for the 175cc (and other) bikes. I bought 70's versions so they weren't too clogged up with stuff about the more modern versions.
Back in 80s, I remember greatly preferring the Haynes manuals for my bikes. I seem to remember that the Haynes was always based on the actual disassembly of a bike, where sometimes it looked like the Clymer was just a modification of the manufacturer's stuff.
But, in this case, both manuals look pretty good to me! In fact, they both seem to have different advantages, dependent on what you are looking for.
Of course, there is great help available on this forum, but having both manuals is also cool.

Aftermarket manuals usually had more photos, and tips and tricks. Yeah manuals are a must for me, I need to see it in front of me. Im a tactile person, probable why didn't do well in school. But put something in front of me and I'll take it apart and put back together.
I still have my original factory Norton manual from 1972
By far the best aftermarket manual is the
