    I asked BMW NA about this almost a year ago. Owners manuals for BMW automobiles are available on the bmwusa.com web site, so I asked if motorcycle manuals would also be available. I got the usual brush off from their "customer service" rep. If you find a source let us all know.

    Manual

    Call A&S BMW at 1-800-689-9893 and have the last 7 digits of your VIN at hand.
    They should be able to take care of your request. I just ordered an owners' manual for my R1200R last week, spoke to Fred at their order desk.

    There is a source... but I can't find it right now. One of the European dealers, or perhaps it was one of the national BMW organizations, had PDFs of the Rider's manuals for the various bikes on line in multiple languages. At least that was true last year.

    Smile Downloadable riders manuals

    Marchyman is correct. There are manuals in PDF format to download at BMW Motorrad Denmarks website, see here:

    http://www.bmw-motorrad.dk/dk/da/index.html

    Click on the 'Service' menu, then 'downloade manualer'

    Awesome, thank you.

    I don't think you are breeching any copyright laws since this is from a BMW site. You didn't copy the manual and post it. (My opinion and I am not a lawyer).

    In this case - since a BMW organization is making it publically available - no problem with copyright. The BMW car side has almost every owners manual for the past 10 years available on line. Be nice if BMW-Motorad did the same..

    Edit: Here is the direct link to the download page: http://www.bmw-motorrad.dk/dk/da/ser...s_service.html

    I think this link that Don provided should be a sticky!

    Thanks again Don.

    Thumbs up Life saver!

    Thanks for the link to the manual online. I bought my 07 RT used and there was no owner's manual with it (how do you lose that, especially in one year and only 4000 miles?) This PDF is exactly what I need. I appreciate the effort to ferret out these resources and make them available.

    Thanks! However that link points at the "Rider Manual".
