Looking for a Service Manual

I have access to get a Clymer but is the BMW OEM one better? If so I will make a run down to my dealer (wish I didn't have too) to get one.



05 LT

I know this has been posted before so thanks for your patience.

I have both, the Clymer is much better.

I have not seen the new Clymer yet but I have the OEM for the 05 and it is OK. I also bought an OEM for the earlier years as well as it is laid out more like a regular service manual vs. the interactive electronic manual for the 05. It also covers about 90% of the existing areas of the 05 (if you have the TABS II supplement). The interactive manual takes you from a fully assembled bike to the desired task and back to a fully assembled bike in steps. It builds these steps each time from canned segments. You can't do a "print out" like the old PDF version and build a paper manual.

I intend to also get the Clymer to add to the collection.
