    As a group do you think we have the gravitas
    to lobby Haynes, and talk them into producing
    a manual for the CT owners on here and around the world, we must make a handsome
    Number collectively, do I live in a dream world suggesting this, or does it warrant a thought,
    look forward to your opinion guys

    I think they are actually cutting down on the number of motorcycle manuals they produce, for the past 4 years it's been minimal.

    Although well known they are actually a small publisher, and in this day and age I think their sales are getting less and less.

    Give it a try but I'd be surprised if they agreed.  :821:

    My other bike is a Yamaha TDM900, Haynes produced a manual for the earlier 850, but not the 900. There was a bit of a letter writing campaign on the TDM forum some years ago, but it got us nowhere, Haynes never made a manual for the 900  :110:

    What a shame, the problem I have is with the
    Tinterweb, I'm hopeless with it,asking me PDF and other formats to down load related questions just sends me into blind panick, I've
    been raised on Haynes manuals, I guess I'm not alone, it's an age thing🙄🙄🙄🙄

    Makes financial sense for them to concentrate on bikes that sell in considerable numbers, unfortunately in comparison to other machines the Crosstourer never really sold in bulk.   :003:
