Discounted price for factory service manual?
« on: September 08, 2011, 10:11:11 pm »
 Is there any place to get a factory service manual for the C14 for less than Mama Kaw's $85 price?

 I would like to have a print manual, and maybe later  I can get Fred's videos too.

Thanks sworker- I can't believe I did not think to try Ebay. I have one on the way now, probably from the same seller as yours.

Another option for folks if they cant fork over the pennies, is to download the PDF version from the kawi owners website.  Its a large file of course, but free and always on your computer.  Of course it would be nice to have one, but if im working on something in particular, i can just pull it up take a look and even print out the pages i might need for whatever service im doing.  Just another option   ;)

Do you have a link for that? I've never seen a pdf around except for the 08.

Likewise, I've seen nothing that is 10+ anywhere. If there is a free legit pdf that would be fantastic.

Yeah, i guess i should have clarified that i have an 08.  My bad   :)   You might try the link below and entering your vehicle info.  Thats where i was able to find the PDF for mine.   Momma Kawi may have decided that they werent going to do it anymore after 09.  Good Luck!!

Clinton,

I tried it and only came up with the owners manual for the 08.  Is that what you meant or were you able to download the repair manual too.
