Yamaha Service Manuals

Does anyone have any experience with Yamaha's Service Manuals? Are they worth the money? They are like $50 bucks. Or are there any other service manuals that you recommend? Thanks [img]images/graemlins/puke.gif[/img]

Re: Yamaha Service Manuals

I bought the Service Manual for my 02' Banshee and it helped a little. Although i havent had to use it very much so far, when i go to rebuild the engine the first time it will come in handy. The pictures in it are dark and hard to make out, but yours is a newer model, so i t may have better pictures. I would say if you are a decent mechanic, and not doing to much, you wouldn't need it. If you plan to work on it and modify it, it is worth the money.
No matter what, you will still feel like this alot ---> [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]
Then after a good ranting you will feel like this ---> [img]images/graemlins/givemebeer.gif[/img]
and head straight to the Dealer to do this ----> [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img]

Re: Yamaha Service Manuals

I may be retarded or something [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] but I cant find one for the Raptor... At least not a Clymer. Any one know where I can get one, or even if they make it for sure? thanks

Re: Yamaha Service Manuals

I have clymers for almost all of my machines also, They are much better then the factory ones and should run you less then 30 bucks. I looked too, there aren't any for the raptor yet. Maybe since it's such a new machine. Good choice on the Pro flow, won't have to worry about the big thumper suckin in dirt through an unseated filter now. I asked you this a long time ago, How fast will your cobra run in a 1/4 mile?

Re: Yamaha Service Manuals

Ummm on the Cobra, I have never raced it, it sits in the Garage like all year, and it is lucky to get 3,000 miles on it a year. But I have been told it will run mid-low 13's on a bad day, and with a couple bolt on's High 12's. So not the fastest thing in the world, but it is built with American pride, and is the only remaining muslce car.

Re: Yamaha Service Manuals

I got one of the CD manuals off ebay. The one I got is just like the book for a lot cheaper. I also got full parts diagrams and price lists with it all for $10. I think its alot better deal. You don't have to worry about the pages getting torn or dirty either.
