Yep, soft copy is only way to go. Pull up page on my laptop, easily enlarge print or diagram. I have no interest in hard copies.

Charge me 25k-30k for a motorcycle> I should get a damn manual with it, ad not have to spend $9.95 to download it from a pirate site. That's just the Moco's way of nickle and diming people.

Paid 27k into the bike. I can afford the 60 dollar service manual. No top sports cars come with the service manual. No cars come with it.

Best price I’ve been able to find them is $90. I paid $50 for what was supposed to be a used one but it ended up being a copy someone made at a kinko’s or something. Pissed me off.

After I got my 2016 Road Glide I ordered an electronic copy of the service manual from somewhere before I knew Harley did not do that. Turns up it works great, but I’m missing a couple of sections. Got to see the humor in that........ I need a manual and will prob order from Harley. Like several have said, the electronic version (copy!?����) is very convenient. Harley should make available upfront.

Iím not going to disagree with you....itís bullchit. Also not going to argue the legality of download sales as I just donít care. Just want to point out though that, as Bbally stated, youíre not getting a service manual no matter how much you spend...unless of course you negotiate that into a deal. When we purchase a Mack garbage truck with a McNeilus body for north of $250K we donít get a service manual...unless we pay for one. Itís just part of the game. Iím guessing the last time any of you guys purchased a new $50K+ car or truck they didnít give you a service manual. You didnít even think about. So what makes this situation any different? Not a post to be a dick. Just want to open some eyes to the fact that service manuals are made of paper, theyíre large, they cost money...and theyíre not going to throw one in the saddlebag or glove box of a car or truck just in case the owner wants to work on their own vehicle. If yíall wanted a free service manual you should have told the salesman to throw one in or Iím going somewhere that will.

I will concede to the 60 dollar manual costing 90 bucks, but does the 30 bucks change the point? Nope .... John Deere combine we use for corn $425k, no manual, cars and trucks, no manual, ....

If someone thinks the manual is a ripoff .... wait til they put tires on the thing for the first time.

So to summarize ... if 90 bucks will break the bank you are already in way over your income level for this type of machine.

I have purchased the service manuals for both my 03 RK and my 15 RGS for about $60.00 each. Now my dealer wants $100.00 for the manual to my 17 RGS. I realize the M8 is a totally new engine but what constitutes the increase in price. It can't be printing costs because that is a very competitive business, my cousin owns a printing company and production cost are cheaper since the use of desktop computerized printing systems. My brother owns a 91 Ultra Classic and he had asked me to pick up a service manual for his Evolution engine bike. There was no difference in the price for his manual and my 03 Twin Cam manual. So, it just pisses me off that they are ripping us off, IMO, for the new engine manuals and after the annual increases in the price of our bikes they could afford to hold the price the same as previous manuals.
BTW, that Evolution manual for my brothers bike was so much more detailed than my Twin Cam manual.
