Re: Yamaha factory service manual

This company is 73 miles away from me in an area that is some great riding. The next nice day I can get out I'm going over there and check them out. I see that it's less expensive to buy the manual right from them than it is off Ebay! ::026::

Ordered a genuine Yamaha S10 2014 - 2015 edition off ebay.
Ordered from RepairManual.com
This covers the ES AND STANDARD model.
Expensive if you have to get it shipped but well worth every penny.
A lot clearer and detailed than the early 2010 model disc copies floating around.

I can confirm this is a totally genuine brand new Yamaha manual...item code LIT-11616-27-59

Got one after getting a $500 quote for radiator, clutch, and brake fluid change. Biggest issue was getting it out of the robust packaging.
Thank you! Just picked one up. I've always been really frustrated with how these books are priced. As if the manufacturer is willfully discouraging owners from DIY work... I bought the overpriced 4 year YES warranty. It should come with a free Shop manual.

You've never owned a BMW, I see. :D The YES is a bargain compared to most other oem/non-oem warranties. (if your dealer soaked you for over $500, that's about the dealer and you not investigating first) ~$100 for a shop manual is pretty average for OEM manuals. Consider how small the production run of the manuals is compared to Hilton or a 'normal' publication. Everything costs the same to produce, but it has to be amortized over a much smaller market/publication run. I've paid a lot more for oem manuals that were a lot less well done than the Yamaha one. Mitsubishi had an awful one for my '92 Montero back in the day and it cost me $170 back then! Still saved me far more than that to have it.

Never owned a BMW, and never will for many reasons, that being one of them. I did get hosed by the dealer for ~300 over what I've seen them go for through more reasonable dealers, but the manufacturer allows that to happen. I should've known buying anything in New Jersey was a bad idea, the dealer (DHY) pissed me off for more reasons than that.
