The Elusive Owners Manual

Ever tried to work on your bike via cell phone screen? No? Well, it SUUUUCKS!!

I have not been able to locate an owners manual for my bike, other than an unprintable download, or "view online. It's just a tad frustrating. I need real life, full size pages...not the teeny tiny phone screen shot! Ugh!

Ok, ::rant over::

Yes, I've been looking. I do have a Clymer manual, but I REALLY want the owners manual, specific to my bike. As soon as I get back from my son's soccer game, I'll have to search eBay. I think that's the only place I found one when I looked a couple days ago.

I have this manual already. I'm looking for the Yamaha (blue) owners manual specific to my bike. So far, no luck. :/

I suppose it would be silly to suggest going to your friendly local dealership and ordering one.

Took me all of 30 seconds to find (and download) the owners manual, and even the service manual; not sure what the problem is...

I also found and downloaded the owners manual...the problem is, it is not printable, and I want it in "book" format, not on a computer screen.
