There are a few books, but I haven't read any personally. I learn all my stuff from online, either from forums, Google or YouTube. You can also purchase various motorcycle manuals, and there is usually pictures of step by step procedures.

As Stephan suggested- read Zen and The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, it'll put a whole different aspect to reading the tech-books and it's a fun read.

Really any knowledge you can gain can hurt. You gotta start somewhere. There are many, many books out there. I just read service manuals, (even for fun) I know nerd. I went to school then did some years with dealer ships, and few years building choppers. The day you think you know everything, is the day you know nothing. Only real advice I can give is: take your time, working on bikes is not a race. If your not sure ask someone. More than likely someone as see it.

Take a different tact, a novel, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, less how to and more why. Early 70's, I read it in college. PS Read the other suggestions after writing mine, the only constant is ZEN.
