I didn't see any topics on this, so I figured I would start a new one.

This might be a dumb question, but is there an actual service book that will lay out all the information that has to do with the R6?
(Engine/ Electrical wise?)

When the warranty stuff I bought with the bike is up, I don't want to be stuck paying labor charges to something I could do by myself.

When I had a my Supra, either devious or myself would do all the work to it ourselves. I had a manual that would basically tell you how to strip your engine down and put it back together.

Not that this is needed right now, but if something were to happen, I want to have a book there to explain to me what I would need to do, how to torque the bolts properly, etc....

Any thoughts/ suggestions?

Thanks-


Wow. Just..................wow.

Do you think that a place such as Coleman's would sell it to you?
Or do you think I would have better luck surfing the net?

I know nothing of Coleman's. They arent a kawi shop. I surfed the net for a while and couldnt find anything. The cholo guy was pretty solid, did everything over paypal. he was pretty quick about it too. from what I understand, these are the factory service manuals.

You can usually find them if you dig hard enough on the net, but they are going to be illegal copies - just like the PDF copy you buy from eBay for 2 bucks. Buuuuut..... who really cares anyway?

It's nice to have the printed manual though, so the 40 bucks seems worth it. Some of the PDFs I've seen aren't exactly the best quality.

I just got my R1 manual from Heyser Cycle. You should be able to get a service manual from any dealer that sells Yamaha.

FYI, it was on back order as I ordered it almost 2 months ago.

Riggs Kwan is the guys name. I know Derek got one from him. E mail is cholocholo@yahoo.com. PM Derek first though, I think the guy might have changed his e mail for ordering the manuals but I'm not sure. The cost is around $30 and is sent through Priority Mail by USPS. Usually takes 3 days. These are copies of the factory service manuals, and as far as I know they cannot be bought from dealers.
