As far as manuals you should be able to get the manufacturer's at any dealer. I've heard others use the Clymer's manuals. I don't know which is better.
I'd make sure what exactly is wrong before ordering parts to rebuild a transmission. You never know, it could be something really minor and easy to repair. Get the manual before anything else.
Also, look into taking the MSF course.
Good luck, and congrats on the bike!
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
