Crappy 2011 OEM Manual

I've owned my 2011 Wee a little over a year now the first 15 pages of the manual have just fallen out--so now it's a pain to keep it all together. I've owned five other motorcycles and never had this problem.

That should be covered by Suzuki's Written & Published Materials Extended Warranty. You should take it to your local dealer for warranty repair. I believe that all Suzuki dealers now have the latest hot glue rebinding systems and automated repagination tools.

Mine is also punched for a three ring binder. Take it by a small print shop and have them cut the spine off which will make it easier to turn the pages.
