Post 2016 Vstrom 1000 - Workshop Manual

Good morning

I just changed my 2006 Vstrom for a brand new 2016 Vstrom 1000. I'm can't wait for the snow to melt to pick it up at the dealership! (Yeah! Still some snow in Quebec!)

Is there someone among you that would know where I could get the workshop manual for this version of the VStrom? I can find the workshop manual for my 2006 but can't find anything for the new 2016?

Some help from all of you would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

I purchased a manual from the Suzuki dealer I bought vstrom from, don't remember exact price but it was between $80 - $100.

That's what I'm gonna be my next step, ask my dealership. I was just hoping to find a version online, like a digital copy. But can't find anything. Is not like I didn't Google for it. Just wandering if I'm using the right keywords!

Thanks

Digital copy? You mean pay someone for a stolen item. While the factory service manuals are not cheap, they are very well done and it takes a LOT of work to build the data and pictures for them. And they certainly are not a high volume item so cost per piece is a bit high. Support those that do this work. If not, then you will find Suzuki and others simply not making these manuals available for sale to the public. I wouldn't blame them at all.

The factory service manual will be bound all around in heavy paper. If you see something with plastic edges on the binding it is a stolen copy. I am not aware of any online versions, factory supported or not.

The dealer and these two sites are the only ones I know of for sure that sell genuine Suzuki factory manuals.

Genuine Suzuki Manuals
2014-2016 Suzuki DL1000A V-Strom Motorcycle Service Manual

If you find an after market supplier like Haynes, a 2014-2016 model year would be applicable to your bike. Online manuals are pirated and anyone posting a link to one can be banned for copyright infringement.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

I found the genuine Suzuki article online for $39, but I can't remember where I got it. Just have to hunt around. So far, it's not been that useful to me, but I'm glad to have it.

Not genuine.....not for that price you didn't unless you bought it used, what you got was a genuine copy.

A genuine manual is book bound with a glued spine. A manual with plastic or metal binding or loose leaf is pirated.

If it has a clear plastic sheet over the cover, it is a stolen copy. I have seen the "Genuine" $39 manuals. They were pirated copies. Maybe that is why you cannot find them now.......

Congrats on the new bike Bruneau. The good news is , It's a V-Strom.... you won't need a repair manual for a long time. They should be available by the time you really need it.
