Manual site

I'm sure some of you have seen this, I didn't see a link for it, (might be blind)
But I thought I'd pass it along.

Too bad the link on that page is broken... If you need a manual, you can download one from the link in my signature.

New manual posted!

Thanks to Crazy Steve, I have now posted a new OEM manual that includes extremely detailed information for ALL years of the XS1100. The cover specifically lists it as a manual for the '81 models (H. SH, LH) and it has supplements for all the other years. Its a B&W manual, so it is a bit smaller in size (35mb) than the '78 manual (185mb) or the Aftermarket '78-'81 (85mb) already on my site. It includes the details about the funny electrical things they did in later years, and will make troubleshooting much easier for the late-model owners. It also gives very detailed specs on valves and other engine components.

Enjoy!

Geeze Bug I thought you got tired of us or died unexpectantly or something like that. Good to see you posting again. Glad to see you have a new and improved manual to have and hold. I will download it tonight. Lack of color is a bonus as most pictures did not work (out other than B/W with some pink), on my previous downloads. That was my fault due to the printer being low on ink.

I have been trying to download a manual from bugs site for about a week and it doesn't work for me. It goes to like 136kb of 0kb and stops. I waited about 10 minutes and it didn't move. I have really fast upload and download speed so it should have worked. I downloaded these a long time ago and lost them when I redone my computer. Anyone know what could be wrong or another place to get it. I am getting ready to do fork seals and need guidance.

I just tried again and didn't work. It also will not go back to the download tab. Like when it opens another tab called ringler (the site), if I leave it there and come back here in another tab it wont go back to the ringler tab. It worked fine a while back ago, took a little bit but not long. I have the fastest gaming internet you can get here. somethings no working right. It is taking me a long time to post here too so maybe something is wrong with my computer. I hit post and it takes a long time for it to post.

No, I'm still alive. I've been dealing with some difficult personal stuff, and my job has taken all my extra attention. My bike has been running quite well, so I haven't had the need to seek advice lately either. We are looking at a high probability of relocating to Utah before next April (maybe before the end of the year), if I can figure out a way to get out from under my house. Unfortunately, that puts all bike-related projects on hold for a while as well.

That new manual has been sitting on my desk since the end of May, and I scanned each page myself, a section at a time, then combined the sections, adding blank pages so it can be printed in duplex (both sides of the page). It shouldn't have taken as long as it did, but at least it's done now. The details described in it really are very in-depth, and will be very helpful for electrical issues in the later models.

Thanks, CatatonicBug!

I can tell that was a lot of work and I'm still reading through it but it looks great so far!

Good luck relocating and getting out from under your house. You know, that just doesn't sound right... no little dogs or ruby slippers were involved?

Actually, my dog and macaw are part of the issue with relocating. I won't be able to buy a new house for a while, but I'm not letting them go either. I do wish I had some magic slippers to make it all happen though. I just hate waiting, and dealing with all the unknown factors involved in all this mess.

Hey bug, all of us really appreciate all the work you do on the manuals. I know it takes a lot of time, so thank you. Hope everything works out for you. I don't know what going on with my puter but I need to get it figured out. Ernie emailed me the front fork section. Thanks again.
