When you signed up, this was specifically talked about. Nobody is licensed to make an FJR manual or a CD version of it, so there are no Clymer's editions, and all CD versions are pirated.

The only places to buy a legit one are from Yamaha, a forum member selling one, or off of eBay if it a genuine manual. FWIW, I have a 2007 FJR and use a 2008 manual. There are some little changes, but not enough to stress.

A 2006 or 2007 manual would be better though. Ask around, or just go to the dealer if you can't verify if it's a real manual. They're less than $100.

I'm not sure if they moved the idle adjustment knob, but on my '05 (Gen I), it's right above your right footpeg behind the edge of the fairing. Kind of out of sight, but you can look in there, especially with a flashlight. Normal idle is usually specified at 1100--don't think the year changes that.

I like the handle, by the way. You drive a lunch truck? Own one? Just can't pass one by? Gotta tell us, Larry.

The "print-on-demand" doesn't mean you print it at home, it means they don't stock it, but will print one when you order it, and then ship it. Thus the 3 to 5 days for shipping to happen.

Are you the reason I'm so far above average?
I'm always right, yet it continues to surprise people! How can that be?

Bob,

I'd suggest updating your profile to show exactly what model FJR you own. Does it have a clutch lever?

Bob - I thought you bought a 2010 (standard) model?

I thought there was only one service manual for all models of FJR for a specific year?

I'm with you on the single manual for all models of a specific year but mama's software does ask which model anyway.

If you have a clutch lever and you didn't buy it in California I'm going to bet you have a FJR13AYB
