Does anyone have a PDF of the service manual for the SCR950?

No, I'm looking for a full service manual. Engine breakdown and repair, the full banana. Have one for every other motorcycle I own.

To the best of my knowledge the complete Factory Service Manual (pictured) is available only by purchase, not download. However, Yamaha does offer Owners Manuals as pdf download.

Often pirate copies appear on the web but usually for a model that has been in the market for some time.

You guys got me wondering if I should get one on order just in case they discontinue the manual just like they did with the bike.
Decision made....I will stop at the dealer and order one on Monday.

If I can buy one that'd be better. All I see are pirated copies on eBay, and I don't want to pay some ******* for that... but I can't find a real copy for sale. Clymer's, Haynes, and Chilton's are close to out of business these days, so getting a service manual from them is a no-go.

I went to the dealer and ordered the exact service manual that Rokrover copied into his response. They referenced the number shown along the bottom of the front cover in that thumbnail image and it showed that they were in stock at Yamaha. Thanks Rokrover!
However, It is the most expensive manual I've ever purchased coming in at a few coins under $100 dollars......

Looks like that item number gives you some cheaper on line options, although the way they describe the manual it sounds like it might be a copy of the Yamaha manual. The link reads scr900? But they show the correct manual on the page. Oh well. I ordered mine from my local Yamaha dealer where I bought the bike. I support local businesses when I can.

Id like to get an OEM copy of the service manual too. One hundred dollars U.S. means about one thirty Canadian. Yikes that IS a lot!

Do you own this Service Manual, Rokrover? I'm just wondering if it's worth buying... I have a factory service manual for my other bike and it's great, it has lots of pictures and is very easy to follow -lots of detailed information. Just wondering if anyone owns it and also what they think of it. Thanks

Of course. It quickly pays for itself when you do it yourself. For a fresh model like the SCR950 it's basically routine maintenance for now.

The manual is well organized and reflects Yamaha's long experience in the business. I can't say the same for my TW200 Service Manual that was written 30 years ago and is less clear. A couple of updates were then tacked on making it difficult to find relevant information.

Anyway, remember the manual is a good reference tool but can also build over confidence and get you in trouble. It's just as important to know your limitations and not start complex disassembly work you can't reverse through lack of skill, experience or special tools.

Ok. how did you find out? Man I will never live that down. I could've got it back together and running again if I just had the special tool. Lol

Took a few weeks to come in, but I picked up my manual this afternoon. I agree with the others that already gave it good reviews. I have no intentions of selling this bike, so it will be a good investment.
