Service manual 990

I went to my dealer to order a service manual (CD) for my 2013 990. They told me that the manual CD was a PC only readable. I use Macs for my work so I have a lot invested in that technology.

My question:

I was able to download a 2011 manual in PDF format. Will the information from that manual be accurate for the newer bike? Otherwise I'm not sure what to do. I wish I could just buy a paper hard copy, but that doesn't seem to be available.

As far as I know 2011 and 2012 are identical.

And 2013 the hardware is identical also just sold with new paint scheme.

Within the cd there are numerous pdf files. Three of them are the actual manuals in English (I think I can find the path when I return home). It's probably possible to just use a Windows pc, copy these three pdfs to a memory stick and use the Mac to view them.


Think (I searched from my phone so bear with me) I found them.

That would be good! I'm just hoping the specs are the same, so I don't wreck anything. I've got to check the valves for the first time, and have no faith in the dealer to do it right.

We run Macs in our business also and run a program called Parallels which allows you to download Windows and run pc software on the Mac.

I have a 2012 CD. You have options.

1. Your mac can access the files on the CD as individual PDF's. The PDF linking from the master "home page" won't work but a PDF is a PDF is a PDF so you can read them. They are also bookmarked so you can easily search within Preview or whatever PDF app you use by topic or chapter.

2. Virtual Box is a free and very good emulator for PC on a Mac. I use it now and have used Parallels in the past. I no longer see any value in paying for parallels when VB does exactly what I need.

PM me if you need more info.

Off topic - but would Vitual Box allow TuneECU software (PC version only) to run on my MacBook Air?
Sorry for the thread Jack - but it would be sooo much easier than carrying my desktop PC into the garage.

Yes

TuneECU won't know that it's being run on a virtual windows machine. I've never had a problem running any windows program using an emulator (Fusion).
