Not cheap. But save an hour and a half in labor its paid for. With my discount it was $119.00. Money well spent. Go get ya one.

Save the dealer for warranty work .

It always amazes me how we can spend $20K+ on a toy and then balk at spending $100 on a manual to work on it. I see it with ORV's and other toys.

It is one of the first things I buy when I buy a new toy. Now days I get both a electronic version and a paper version.

I was thinking of the Electrical Diagnostic manual.
I was thinking electrical. Is that different from what's in the back? Has all the wiring schematics there.

Considering the last two I bought were $68, I balked at it. Just because the bike was $20K+ doesn't mean I'm not gonna be frugal when buying stuff for it.

I always get the service manual and the parts manual for the bike.

The service manual to understand how things work, are put together and how to fix/service things. Reference it all the time because I want to know how my machine works

And the parts manual - well that is great for understanding how things are put together and the different components. When somethings needs to be replaced, you have the specific part number before you call, go online or in person

They are both great for learning and understanding

Any idea when the '20 version will be available? Can't find 1 and dealer doesn't know.

Since I do a lot of my own work on my bikes I look at a manual as an investment. Same for all the vehicles I own.

It like not having an owners manual for a rig. It drives me crazy so if I bought used I'll buy it if it is missing.

Whenever I buy a Harley I always order the Service Manual, the Electrical Manual and the Parts Manual for the year of the bike I buy. Those three manuals cover everything You need to know if You work on Your own Harley.

Electrical diagnostic instructions. Step by step procedures to avoid replacing perfectly good parts.

Its actually thicker than the service manual.
Damn, How much is that one?

I have a lot of oily finger prints throughout mine
I use mine a lot and glad i bought it but damn near all the pages have come loose from the glued binding and i have to be careful when using it because the pages will fall out. Someone told me to take it to fedex and they could put some sort of loop binding on it to keep it together. Oh, and i have the oily finger prints in mine also.
