Like a lot of folks, I downloaded the pdf version of the shop manual for my bike. It was a cumbersome pain in the ass. Who wants to press [PAGE DOWN] a couple hundred times to find how the clutch assembly goes back together when their bike is on the lift and there are parts flying all over the place..?
This is my humble contribution... I took some time to bookmark a proper table of contents within the pdf and ran it through my OCR software and made it completely text-searchable.
Index / Table of Contents
[I'm sure EVERYBODY is excited to know that the word "axle" appears 45 times in the VT600 shop manual.]
The "original" was just what looked like a scanned copy of the paper document. It weighed in at just over 100MB. As part of the OCR / Text conversion, I optimized the document for text with only a slight sacrifice of some of the included graphics. It's now ~ 25MB (The zip archive attached to this link should be ~ 24MB).
Here is a link to a direct download of the compressed file:
I'm not sure how long I'll be able to keep it up. (Go ahead, that setup is WIDE OPEN). I may hit a bandwidth restriction (not sure) and in that case, the link will cease to work. If that happens, as soon as somebody let's me know (and I'm sure they will)
I'll find another means of hosting / attaching the file.
[I'm pretty sure this makes it obvious where the "geek" in "ScootGeek
" comes into play...]
I'm also available for Photoshopping ex-wives and girlfriends into Donkey-Shows and German Scat pictures... On a case-by-case basis, of course...
Now, I'm going to go fuck-off for a while... Noob Down...
