Sorry to get your hopes up.
The maual WAS available from Yamaha as a free download back then (2006?). Perhaps they figured that they 'might as well' since the bike was being replaced soon. No idea why they no longer offer it. I would have bought one from the dealer had it not been legitimately available on line then. I do that with all the other toys, I figure that it far too easy to make a $100 (or much more) mistake so the manual is a reasonable investment.

Looking at Yamaha's website, they do still have the manual but it is no longer a free download, they want $79 for it now. It appears that Haynes has a service manual available, being written in English rather than translated, it might be easier to read than the factory one. Good Luck!
