R 1100 S Service Manaul

Does anyone know where to find a R 1100 S Service Manual that doesn't cost 3 times as much as it should like the BMW one? Thanks

there is a dvd link floating around here somewhere, and IIRC there is a Haynes or Clymer also

I have the Clymer and I have to say it's so frustrating looking up infomation because it includes info for about 4-5 different bikes which then requires me to sift (read: jump around) through the manual and highlight what I need.

The PDF is much better and I trust the information more than I do Clymer. I've noticed torque values to be different in the two manuals. For instance, when I upgraded my rear shock Clymer said to use 43Nm on the upper bolt and 50Nm on the lower, the BMW PDF said to use 50Nm for both. I also read on this forum that the conversions from Nm to ft/lbs. in the Clymer are not accurate so beware.
