Not me, Brockie, I do all my own work. And even at that, they allowed me to dictate the procedure for my ECU recall.

My intention was to generalize that if a dealership cannot have ALL their paperwork in order, and on handover day provide a new motorcycle with all its parts and documentation, how then could you ever trust them to do work on it?

Exactly, the place where we get the great deals on our bikes here isn't the same dealership where I take mine for service. I wouldn't trust them to do any serious work. lol

In some US states ( or nationally ) I believe that its regulation that all safety information is given freely.... including an Owners Manual...hence the disclaimer on page 1....I'm not a lawyer, but some lawyer on this site could chime in....

Go back to that link ( reposted below) to buy the manual. During the buy process, a download link opens up to download a 2018 DL 1000 Owners Manual.

Trust this helps all....

Just wanted to add... the OM is a free download from the genuine suz manuals site in ZipZiggy's post.

The downloaded file has an arcane filename... "webkit<something>.pdf"... you'll want to rename it to something more obvious like "2019 VStrom OM.pdf" so when you go looking for it a month from now you'll be able to find it.

Awww, now I'm bummed out... The download link is only available for the 2018 & 2019. I guess I'm stuck with my non-searchable paper copy of the 2014 owner's manual.

Also, that under seat compartment the books are stored in is not water resistant. I had my manuals in the zip-lock plastic baggie they came in and they still got wet.

Same thing happened when I purchased my 2018 two weeks ago. Dealer knew a week in advance of when I when I was picking up the bike. Told me on several occasions everything was ready to go. Told dealer I wanted to be in and out as fast as possible. We had the funds ready to go. They assured me bike was ready and paperwork was ready, period.

After I arrived to pick it up had to wait over an hour for someone to attach temporary plates, then no owners manual or tool kit. 2 weeks later finally got an owners manual. Now just hope I am lucky enough to get the official plate before the temp expires.

I forgot to come back and note that the first time I took my seat off a couple of weeks after the purchase, the original manual that came with the bike was under there with the took kit the whole time. So, now I have two.........
