    Hey,

    Anybody tried the downloadable manuals?
    If yes, what do you think of them?
    Thanks, I'm sure I'll get some great responses.

    You do realize that the downloadable service manuals are pirated copies ?

    Its easier to buy a legit one.

    I have both a hard copy Service Manual and an electronic version. The electronic version is great for searches, and for printing the page(s) of what you may be about to work on so you don't get your hard copy dirty. But, I prefer the hard copy.

    I too bought one of those discs off ebay and it is very good. The pages look just like the paper manual, and like the other guys say you can print just the pages you need. If you spill oil on a page, just go in and print another one. Really neat, and it only cost me $10 compared to $65 or so for the paper manual. Give it a try!!!!

    I bought an electronic version too. I'm very happy with it, especially the price. It came with a parts catalog and a diagnostic manual as well. I prefer a printed book when working on the bike so I printed it all off. It took 2 reams of paper and a couple of three ring binders.
