Get a Clymer's manual
The manual will cost you about $25. Then, before actually using it, come on the forum to see if the manual has it right, or if anyone has experienced a different way to do it, or a simpler way to do it.
For instance, I have found that I can't open my oil plug except from the right side, can only take off the oil filter using a "stabbed through" screwdriver (can't seem to get those oil filter wrench things to work without breaking a nail or two - yeah, I am a GIRL after all), how to put a block under the footstand to check the level of the coolant (can't see that bugger). The little stuff.
I have the Haynes manual also, but don't like it as well as the Clymer's.
Keep the oil changed with good oil, of the right weight. Oil those cables!
You'll do fine.
