Service manuals help a lot. Also, having good quality, and the RIGHT tools is very important.
I am self-taught. I learned what I know mostly through the internet, and asking service techs from time to time. Some things I just have the dealer do even though I could do them myself...things like changing fork seals or wheel bearings.
It's really fun wrenching on your own bike, so have fun!
Just make sure that you tighten everything up to the correct torque spec before you ride again!
