    Valmet,

    Have you asked you local dealer to order one. They will usually do it at no cost. You might check online as well as they may have a .pdf you can download. Best of Luck and ride safe.

    I ordered a Clymer service, repair, maintenance manual, off ebay, for my Wide Glide even though I had the manual. I would recommend you do this also. It should save you some money in maintenance also.Ray

    Have any of you guys happened to hear about some of the Harley dealers shutting their doors? One up our way has closed down that I know of. Economy is getting tough out there.. Dan

    Valmet, I own both OEM and Clymer manuals for H-D's from knuckleheads up to evo's. Both are helpful and have their strong points. I've found that the OEM manuals are more technical while the Clymers are more "plain talk". I would also recommend that you buy an OEM parts book for your XL, they are very helpful if you are doing any of your own work. Good Luck and keep the shiney side up.
