    Getting ready to go look at a used factory SM for my 08 Ultra. The person I'm talking to says that the manual cover states "2008 Touring Models" and that it covers many of the 2008 touring line, including my Ultra Classic, but the cover doesn't specifically say its a service manual for a 2008 Ultra.

    Is this correct and should be OK if I buy this? thanks

    The HD manuals cover more than just one bike. If it's a HD manual it's a good manual.

    Might be worth the call. No clymers manuals or cheap immitations, just the HD book that Hoop mentioned.

    No special reason. I am "part number" kind of person. If the part number matches, I know it WILL fit. :p

    If you are on a budget, and don't mind the inconvenience, a CD version is certainly more economical to "tide you over" for about $8...just a thought, but your $40 manual is a good buy for the genuine article.

    I thought about that NewHD - but I like having the original bounded shop manual...Like smearing my greasy paws over it as makes me feel like Tim the Toolman lol - but appreciate that suggestion -
