I have to disagree with your statements. The 7th edition of Nicholson's Modern Motorcycle Mechanics is an excellent manual for an Ariel Square Four MK11. Yes, 97 out of its 766 pages are devoted to Japanese and American bikes but the 1st and 2nd editions have a couple of hundred fewer pages. This latest edition has eliminated some of the information found in earlier editions but, for example, is information on girder forks pertinent to the owner of a MK11 Sq4? On the other hand, the 7th edition has many updated details that apply only to the later bikes.
I hope Drew buys a copy and reports back to us on his impressions.
