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.

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.

Thanks Nick, but wrong year. Looking for the '06 manual. And so you don't waste your time, there are tons of "downloadable" manuals online, but they are "protected" documents and when you try to print them, they print blank pages. I'm trying to get my hands on the actual book, so I don't have to be glued to the computer screen. :/

Not sure if you want to go this route but there are a couple of password pdf to word converters out there. How good they are I cannot say. But it might be a last route. I have the soft copies for my 2009 V-Star 1300 Tourer. Just have not had time to try one of these yet. Just a thought.

Thanks, Bill. If I can't find the hard copy, I may give this a try. Thanks for the heads up!

Mom2sixqts Did you try on Yamaha's site?? Here is link to search for your manual

https://www.yamahamotorsports.com/motorsports/owners-manuals

and this is link to 2006 650 manual

https://dd5394a0b8ca8e97ba29-abf76f3d91a2125517d6c7c409f095c7.ssl.cf1.rackcdn.com/content/common/manuals/2006/LIT-11626-19-70_1187.pdf

It is a pdf file and I don't think it is locked from being printed. I test printed the cover page and it worked.


Only the cover page prints, the rest of the pages print blank. Pretty sure they are all protected/locked. :/ Thanks for trying, I appreciate it!

Here's the weird part. If I went to the site and requested and displayed the selected owners manual I could print any pages I wanted too. If I downloaded and saved a copy as a pdf file on my computer, then opened the file in Adobe Acrobat it WOULD NOT let me print any selected pages. The saved pdf file showed that it was password security protected and would not allow printing. HMMMMMM !!
