    Well I had way too much crammed in that small BDM manual 3 ring. So I picked up a new slightly larger 3 D ring binder from the office shop. Put in the BDM manual , the S&S super G, S&S super sidewinder, and BDM troubleshooting flow chart. Designed a new cover, side cover and rear cover sheets. Turned out pretty good. Generic enough to pass around... well besides the side cover.

    So here's what they look like.

    Front Cover

    Side Cover

    Rear Cover

    Its what's on the inside that counts...

    Little tabs for quick greasy hands flipping

    Troubleshooting Diagnosis flow charts

    S&S Super G

    S&S Super Sidewinder

    Plus more room for expansion, but not so big that its hard to move around and keep on the shelf. But a nice change over the tight squeeze I had in the factory binder. Plus I have been and predict alot more use of it with the current project.

    I have a PDF file for the front and rear and can make about anything for anybody for the sides (just don't ask for cool artwork, but if you got it, I can use it), so just ask and I'll shoot them over to you.

    good job - as per usual - I'm going to move mine out as turning the pages is a pain in the ass - not that I understand much of it - it seems I need a manual to explain my manual as it doesn't always explain what the parts are they're talking about - luckily for me I'm on this forum!

    Hey Gas, where's the actual service manual document located? I'd like to download a copy to get something started like you have.

    Nice job.

    Its not really downloaded... I bought it. You can buy yours from Nelson at WB.

    Thanks guys... I know... I got too much time... but its a matter of faster service when in the garage.

    Unfortunately .... that violates several laws and (trust me on this) Big Dog Legal would be sending you a nice little notification from their General Counsel. :job:

    Nice Job Gas Man.... I've done the same with many of my manuals too in the past. It makes looking things up a bit easier.
