Using the Royal Enfield Interceptor Series II Workshop Manual

This manual is organised with an index which is Page based, but numbered by the small chapters as in the original Workshop Manual. The Blue links take you to individual pages in PDF format. You need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader Plug in, which is free and the most commonly use document reader on Internet. If you haven't got it installed, click on this icon --->   Obtain .pdf reader here

The document reader starts automatically off this index page for each page. You scroll down by holding the mouse button and dragging. You can zoom in to detail or view the whole page. The document is not available to copy parts of, or for printing.

This workshop manual is NOT intended as a quick stop once only to print off or copy the manual for free, but it's all about providing information to the Interceptor Owners who require particular information about disassembling or assembling their Interceptor.
The information is here and it makes good simple reading as well.

There is only one page per pdf file, so a New window is started when you select a page. If you open a page a second time, and your browser cache settings are normal, you should see the page load quickly, even days later. To exit just close that additional window.

If you require to read from page to page, shift back with Alt Tab to the workshop index and select next page and yet another window is opened, this way you can have simultaneous access to several pages.

ALSO-NOTE!. If you refer to a page several times and find that your caching (your computer saving pages for quick retrieval locally) doesn't give you fast results, then you can SAVE individual pages on your own computer using the diskette icon in the PDF reader program.(top left)

Approximately 45 hours was spent to build this presentation of the Workshop Manual.
I hope it will be of some use to Interceptor Owners enthused to get their Bike in Top Running Order.

Ride with "Rhythm"       Royal.
