User manual/shop manual

Anyone know where I can find a manual and/or shop manual for the older Yamahas? I know that they were available on-line, but all the links I found were dead.

Thanks!

I went poking around on the Yamaha Canada website and here's what I found in their frequently asked questions section. A long shot at best seeing as how they quit making them for North America for a while, but you never know.

Q. Where can I find technical publications for my Yamaha?

A. Visit any authorized Yamaha dealer. To ensure the fastest possible service, be sure to have your complete model and serial number handy.

Here's the phone number for the district office:
Yamaha Canada (Quebec branch)
(450) 641-2602

Rar is another form of zip. Sometimes they are split into more than one part though. I use 7zip, but winrar was the original program. 7zip is free, winrar you are suppose to pay for.

Excellent, you can perhaps send it to me as an attachment via email?

I tried searching the Yamaha fan club forum and the link was not working anymore, which led me to ask over here.

7zip works great for those type of archives.

I'm going to have to disassemble my carb and clean it. Engine is not running right. All the info is going to come in handy.

10-4 roger that! Printing those manuals as I type. Thanks a lot! If anybody else needs them, I can also now pass them along.

Cheers!

Is there a chance that I could get a copy of those files?

Do they, by chance, cover the YS 240 TB?

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.
