Good find, My dealer wanted to charge me $90 for it when I bought the bike. Glad I waited.

Good find, Jess. I paid $74.44 through my dealership, with a discount.
(twice, as I sent my first copy to abvc in Australia).

Yeah, that was posted elsewhere.

If you are wondering why its so cheap, people came to the conclusion that it is some sort of bootleg thing because it is bound differently from the actual officially purchased tech manuals. Basically it is photocopied and then bound (you can see the black binding in the pic).

Don't get me wrong, I'll probably pick it up from there as well, but just a heads up for some people who might get rubbed the wrong way by it because it is bootleg. I know there are a handful of people out there that don't swing that way.

Now that you mention it, the print on the front cover does look a little "homemade", but you'd think the big companies would just sue them for copy-write infringement or something, they have like every manual on there...

Since it is bootleg, and as Yamaha sets the price so high, I am sure someone will post it out there for all in a PDF file.......
Any takers?
