I picked up a service manual last Saturday. Parts guys had some fun when I asked for a service manual for a Vrod. They claimed it was still written in German on the back of a napkin. I told them as long as it had pictures, that was OK. Lots of good info. After reading thru it, there were several references to an additional manual for the electrical components. Any one pick up the second manual?

LOL. That's the latest Harley trick, they split the FM in two so they can get you for 120 bucks instead of 60, it never ends.

Yup, that they do, at least until they piss enough people off, and then they will be selling water cooled plastic bikes to the X-game crowd. LOL

Guys: Did you happen to check out Chapter 6 - the cooling system? My Service Manual is missing pages 6-1 to 6-18. Then the Transimission section (Chapter 7) starts. And pages 6-19 to 6-22 are repeated in the Transmission section again. Do any of you have the same problem?

Mine is a 2002. It has those pages.
I know mine is different from the dealers.
His had a few less pictures.
Sometimes in the text it will refer me to the wrong picture.
No print date. Part no. 99501-02A

The electrical manual is VERY Valuable addition to your V-ROD maintenance. It will expllain in easy to understand language how all of the sensors work and interact with each other and how the ECM works along with the diagnostic codes for all of the conditions that you may run into. It is invaluable when running down the wiring diagrams as well.

My recommendation is that BOTH the shop manual and the electrical manual are well worth the money.

Consider this BOTH manuals are about the same price of 2 hours of labor at the dealers shop.

Regards.

Good point, I never thought of it that way.
