I have few manual for Yamaha XT's collected from other sites, and uploaded to my site (which is hosted on my home server, so it's slow) Index of /josip/manuali/yamaha
Most notable is XT600E manual from dtr125 site, but I have OCR'd that big PDF, and now its 50MB smaller and it's searchable.
Just added that link to the first post on this thread.
Remember if YOU know of a FREE PDF version, let the rest of us know about it by posting here on this thread. That way none of us will ever be forced to line the pockets of others selling the same data.
It was Okay for me but took ages to download (it's a huge file size). My broadband speed (Talktalk) is only 3.5 MB.
This may help - I Suggest you bin Adobe Reader which has got too bloated and use free version of FOXIT reader instead for all PDF files. Foxit is superb and very quick to load up (compared to Adobe Reader). Adobe Reader is full to the brim with spyware reporting on all movements etc...
Foxit is recommended by many UK computer mags including Computer Active my favourite.
Delete Adobe Reader before installing Foxit.
Remember to set your PC to open ALL future PDF's with FOXIT (tick the box for future downloads). I have used this little gem for years now and it's never let me down (unlike Adobe bloat/spy ware).

Hello Svakak & Kentfallen,
i am new here and just picked up a 1997 XT600E (chassis / engine #'s start with 3TB) in Hong Kong. Searching for the service manual i downloaded the link Svakak posted (107mb). On page one it references XT600 A/AC. Appears not to be my bike. Like many others I can find links (purchase) etc to 84-89 and 90-96 *. however nothing 1997 XT600E specific. IS there such a service / maintenance manual out there available for down load (free) ? if all else fails I'll search and buy one. look forward to your feedback.
