06 GT Service Manual

Has anyone found a place to buy a service manual for an 06 GT? I have been told the S,R, and GT use the same service manual, is that true?

Yes, I did.
The second edition( 11/2005) RepROM Repair Manual for K models K4x.
Part number 01 79 7 702 670 ( written on the DVD ). Includes the sevice manual as well.
Yes, it's true, all new K engines(S+R+GT).

Take care!

I have been given a word of caution by my parts guy.
1) He didn't think it was available yet - I would like to verify this
2) It assumes you know a lot about the basics of the bike. Like it says - remove the engine. It assumes you know how to do this.

I also am interested in this manual/DVD - please pass on your experiences.

Thanks,
ChrisG

I've got it. Took maybe a week to get it from the dealer who sold it to me for $95 as she thought it was way overpriced (gotta love that one!). I believe it's around $130 or so.

It's a full DVD, maybe 8 gigs worth. Honestly, it isn't all that great and hard to navigate through and loops back onto itself (i.e. page 1 > page 2 > page 3 > figure back on page 1, and so on). Very odd. I tried to copy it to my laptop so I could access it faster, but only a portion - maybe half - of it transferred.

It uses a lot of BMW special tools numbers and stuff like their Motoditec (or whatever it's called) unit. At least it showed that you need a front fork lift for the front tire change and a special (large) hex-head wrench to get the axle out. Didn't see anything about the valve adjustment though which I thought was odd. It seems to miss a lot for some reason and gloss over some things like "Remove the cams." Didn't see a wiring diagram either (???). Maybe because it's all in black-and-white? Since not all of it transferred to the laptop, maybe I got a bum disk. Dunno.

Personally, I'd hold out for a Haynes or Clymer book if you can wait.

frankly speaking I had no time to look it through. Bought just to be on the safe side if needed.
The wiring diagram is not included.

Take care!

The CD is missing a lot of the good stuff we used to get in "bench manuals." The first thing I looked for was wiring diagrams... no such luck. "oh... you want wiring diagrams? You will need the other CD," they said! So now I have two CDs for about $200 and still don't have what we used to get with a bench manual.
