It is possible that I am completely inept or blind, but I have been looking on the internet for over 30 mins now and cannot seem to find a repair manual for a 2006 EX500 Ninja. I understand that I am essentially giving anyone free reign to make me look like an idiot, at this point I just don't care! If there is none, is it possible that a 1987-2002 repair manual will work on my bike?

See, everyone says it's easy to find but I can't find it through Google searches or by going through Clymer's website.

you can find it, you're likely not using the correct search keywords.

a google search tool, called Froogle, should net you exactly what you're looking for, also, amazon is teh awesome.

Loo,, the big idea is that they are all virtually identical. the differences between the A vs D are the brakes and minor engine tweeks.

THAT'S ALL.

D1 = 1994
D2 = 1995
D5 = 1998
D20 = 2008

A = Generation 1 (1987 - 1993)
D = Generation 2 (1994 - Present)

The number denotes the year of the generation. year 1 of Gen 2 is D1 Year 1 of Gen 1 is A1

Ahh ok. Thanks for putting up with my idiocy long enough to explain it to me :)

Yep, they are always on ebay. You might even find a used one for less. I got a used one in excellent condition for $10. I have the Clymer's and have them for both my dirt bikes as well. They make everything seem really easy. They even show you pictures of what bolts to remove and everything. I love them!
