No - there really is not Vinnie the Snake Comic book - but Yamaha did put out a lot of good reference material over the years, and back in the day, when folks actually took a wrench to their bikes, magazines would put out some great DIY articles on making them faster!
We are trying to collect as much of the old out of print stuff as we can and make it available to our members! You have to be a registered member to even look at the stuff, but that, of course, is free too! The download section is free for registered members. You should get in and see what's there! Lots of other folks are already using that section!
If you happen to have an old factory manual, and access to a scanner, consider sending us a good scan of it so others can benefit. All submissions attach to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a link to upload directly to the site on your user menu if you are so inclined. right now the file size limit is 2 MB to upload via that interface. If your document is larger, please contact me!
We do this as a service to our members, and ask little in return! There is an outside chance that in the future some items could be on a paid subscription, so you should jump in now!
