Been around about a month now. Bike is going to need to be put away soon (usually in October when the snow starts flying). I was looking to do the valves and sync things up before putting it away. I need to get the proper manual. I was looking at AF1's site, they have a couple of electronic downloads for $7.99 and then what appears to be the complete printed service manual for $149. Can one of you knowledgeable folks help me out on this one?

The electronic one will be the same but in Acrobat *.pdf format - just print out the pages you need when you need them.

When you don't expect to sell many the cost goes up. For what it's worth, I always order a printed factory shop manual for every vehicle I own.

Thanks for the reply.

Something to do with a shortage of trees...the price of wheat...fossil fuels being used at an astonishing rate ( by Tuono types )....The USA leading the world market into a recession ....gorila forces holding gas pipe lines to ransom,,,,Russains bullying smaller neighbours who bully even smaller neighbour states....

I'm not depressed............honest..............just buy the adobe file and save the planet. :bump:

You could of course, save your money and download one from here:-

or here:-

The RSV's and Tuono's are pretty much the same spec's
