    Manual

    Has anyone found a good up to date, full of usable info, manual (not the $113 one) for a 2001 1150 GS?

    I have a Haynes one for our RS that's OK.

    The BMW one is actually pretty good. The drawings are useful and are better than most of the black and white photos I find in other manuals.

    I'll pay for a decent manual. Even at $100, it's only a couple hours of shop labor by the dealer. Using the manual over the lifetime of a bike, it gets steadily cheaper. I consider manuals another tool to have.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    Where can one get the BMW manuals (i.e., the non-Haynes/Clymer)?

    Your local dealer can get you one.

    re

    Thanks, I just wanted to make sure the BMW brand manual was worth it (or that there wasn't a cheaper (up to date/useful) version availible). I'm suprised by the lack of info (oil change ect) in the operators manual that comes with the bike.
