    That's what official shop manuals cost, anything cheaper and pdf based is a violation of copyright laws.

    I guess the shop manual is somewhat of a small investment compared to all the trouble and money to be saved by someone who has the time and interest to do their own maintenance.

    Did you get it online or did you have to go through the dealer? Victory doesn't seem to have them available on their site yet?

    Just think of it as an investment you'll recover when you do your 500 mile service.

    I need a torque value for the two M12 bolts that secure the ftont of the engine to the lower front frame member that surrounds the radiator. The bolts down low by the footpegs.

    Anyone know this spec? Anyone with a shop manual?

    I did a modification with mid-mount controls on my Octane and needed to remove and reinstall these bolts. I set them at 50 ft/lbs, (about 68-70 Newton Meters?). Is that about right?

    Thanks in advance,
    Tom

    Found a link to the shop manual on another thread.
    51 ft/lbs is what the factory spec is.

    I find paper manuals an asset - if I plan on keeping the bike for years a necessity.

    Regular maintenance notes and points I check off; when I order brake pads ect I note the website and cost; procedures that are more involved get comments on helping hints. I also keep a file with recipts and a log written on the outside of the folder for mileage/tires/trips ect.
    When I go to sell the bike/car/truck it makes it worth more money too, believe it or not.
