If you ever find one let me know. I have been looking since I bought my "F" 2 years ago. Bought an OEM manual over the summer.

Unless HD has changed their policy on this, you will not find a consumer version of the manual in an electronic-format.

Given the boom in these new EBOOKS & Tablet PC, you can understand everyone desire for them get with the times, there are plenty of ways to copy write protect files from illicit distribution. Time to get with the Times HD!

OTOH, the displays on some of the tablet PC might be susceptible to oil, fuel & solvents used in the shop, if I had one I'd spend a fortune protective film for the touch screen, my paper manuals have plenty of oil & grease finger prints.

Being in the IT business, I HATE that no one includes paper manuals for a lot of hardware & software anymore.

I end up having to "kill the trees" myself and print the suckers. And it's more about manufacturers being cost conscious, than "environmentally friendly".

SCREW THE TREES - I'll take a good ole printed manual any day.

That being said, the first accessory ordered for every bike I've ever owned (at least HD), is the factory service, electrical diagnostic & parts PRINTED BOOKS.

I agree, I'm a big fan of online and computer generated things, but the printed manual is really handy. You can find some good deals on auction sites for them too. I just got a parts catalog for $10 - normally it's like $50. I got my service manual for $36.

The MoCo is really strict on this, I have seen them pull web pages that scanned the service manual for maintenance.
