I have not been able to locate any manual (s) for the M1030M1 motorcycle. Does anyone know any source for the manual ? Does any one even know the TM number/numbers ? I am certain there must have been one provided with the bikes especially since the diesel motor and controls are like nothing most mechanics have ever seen. Any help would be appreciated.

I couldn’t find any TMs for the B1. If any of you ever run across them, please let me know!
I couldn’t find any. As far as I know they were maintained by civilians. A regular klr650 service manual works. The wiring is a bit different as far as the black lights and switch are concerned.

Who were the contract civilians that maintained the M1 models that Bradyw625 refers to ? Where did they get the needed information to maintain the diesel motor in the M1 Model ? For example what are the valve clearances , torque values etc ? What are the recommended service intervals for oil change , valve adjustment etc. What is the recommended battery ( standard KLR 650 batteries do not have the CCA required ) . Any information would be appreciated.

The B1 and M1 are obviously different. Hayes Diversified Technology modified a civilian KLR to get the B1 and then modified those for the M1. They are currently out of business. That’s the risk with the diesel M1. Lack of parts, lack of TMs, etc.

Its one of those you learn as you go. Pray nothing breaks internally.

If it does, its a one off part. Head gasket and all.

Ok, here is a .PDF of Section 2 of the manual (yes, it does exist!). The link to download a bigger file size is at DieselBike.net’s page on the M1030M1 under the Production heading.
I only have Section 2 but you are welcome to it. It details the Starting procedure & how to bleed the fuel system of air plus standard motorcycle maintenance.

Enjoy! :p

Excellent timing! I just drained the tank and installed the correct Odyssey battery. I am about to fire up my M1030 for the first time.

Thanks Torquepen !

I would be interested to hear how it goes Desmodromic.
The manual states 5W40 engine oil but Fred Hayes recommended 5W 30 AMSoil.
The Manual gives an approximate level of half way up the sight glass. In my experience a level just below this could be about right? That’s how I received my bike anyway. I take no responsibility saying that either. Over filling will cause it to smoke grey.
I replaced most of the drip back piping with thicker walled stuff, except for that leading up to the injector itself. I also had to give the fuse box some attention as the wiring was a bit ratty with (in my view) too many connections in such a short link. The bike cut when the 25A fuse blew so I’m assuming that controls the fuel cutoff valve. Be quick on the clutch if that happens to you.
The bike bleeds to fuel system quickly with the bleed screw wound out.

I just purchased a m1030 m1 2000. From a local dealer. He has 2 more. It fried the fuel shut off solinoid. Does anyone know where I can get one ?
Thanks, Tim
