Hmm reread my post. I fully endorse/encourage everyone to get the factory manual. Just not the California edition as it is lacking some cool info. I would rather have the co adjustment then how to tell if the evaporate canister is crack and needs to be replaced.
Has anyone done the CO adjustment on a CA bike? I wonder if this is missing because Yamaha was required to disable it on the CA models to be able to meet CARB certification requirements. This is the first I've heard of Yamaha producing separate manuals for different markets; on the FJR they have a single manual with a CA addendum. Me thinks the bureaucrats may be involved.

The size of the print run is a major factor, indeed. Back in the day, some of the specialized fisheries books I needed/wanted were well over $200 each. Just a normal, regular sized book. Hard cover of course, no paperbacks. Very small number printed so they were very expensive. It's not like you give fish disease books to friends for Christmas. Perhaps as the Super Tenere becomes more plentiful, the cost per book may go down. But for now, they will be pricey.


Just like with me ..... I don't expect you guys to use the wisdom and brilliance I offer to the forum without compensation. Cash is fine, or money orders. Come on, you'll feel better. ::002:: R
Maybe you could do seminars down at the bar in Whitehorse. ::025:: ::025:: ::025:: ::025::

Thanks to this forum, I learned that the CO adjustment is disabled on all US bikes and I also learned how to add a temporary ground wire from the tipover sensor to enable it. The non CA USA manuals do not have this info either. I have added a quick connect lead under the seat so I can make this adjustment quickly.

If you click on the "motorcycle" icon, then select 2012, then Super Tenere ... it gives you about 5 models to choose from. I'm thinking one of those is the European model, but don't know for sure. Have a look. R

Those look like various color combinations and different state specs for U.S. models.

It is the two colors for 49 state and two colors for the CA bikes. XTZ12BL is Blue, XTZ12BB is black, XTZ12BCB in California black, XTZ12BCB is CA blue. If you click to the next step, they all show the same part number, LIT-11616-25-09.

While not the maintenance manual that is the subject of this thread, and as mentioned in another thread...

I made a spreadsheet for the XTZ maintenance schedule that has tasks down the left column and miles/dates across the top. The tasks and schedules include all of the items in the US Yamaha XTZ1200 manual, but I originally made it for the FJR, so it is not a copy and some task descriptions have extra info added, simply because they were handier for me to keep together. For a copy, pm me and include your email address. You'll get 3 files attached with versions in pdf, Numbers and Excel.

Merry Christmas!

I must be missing something on this thread. No matter whether Yamaha builds 100 or 100,000 of a given model of bike, they need to expend resources to create a service manual because their dealers' service departments need to have service manuals. Are the dealers charged less for a service manual for bikes with large production runs than for bikes with small production runs? Are the service manuals digitized before printing? (rhetorical question) Is the cost to Yamaha to deliver a digitized service manual the same as to deliver a print version? (also a rhetorical question) Yamaha is merely trying to protect a profit center; it's just a good business practice.

Is the print on demand manual in the Yamaha store, the PDF versions that you can save to your hard drive?

Typically "print on demand" means they will print the manual when you order it so there is a few days delay, but it is still a paper manual. And AFAIK, the service manuals are still in-stock printings.

The PDF manuals are what the service departments use and I don't think there is a way to obtain these through official channels.

I have a European (UK) workshop manual CD and parts book (came with the bike from previous owner) so, if there is any particular information you need, PM me or email david.bexley@virgin.net and I will try to supply it. Of course, I am not offering to copy the manual for you but I see nothing wrong with passing on information or data........

Just buy the freakin manual from your dealer and maybe he will give you the PDF to go along with it.. Let your dealer make a little money and he, or she, may stay in business. jmho

In Brazil easily you get free the .pdf Service Manual in dealers. The printed version is pay. In the world exist many copys in .pfd. The Google show... I am not stimulating the illegal copy of the Manual of Service. If in the USA it is sold, then should be bought. In Brazil no there is this restriction, at least, seemingly.

Lol being a smog tech I should have known not to order the manual for my bike. I live in California and have the California model. The factory repair manual part #LIT-11616-25-09 lacks the section in 3-9 about The CO adjustment and is replaced by checking the canister ( for California models only).

Just wanted to pass on my mistake so others might not make the same.
Wanna sell your book?
