Is this a true service manual?

Thanks C10. I measured mine and it matches. Went ahead and opened it up and while the pages aren’t blue it does have the ABS section. Pretty sure it’s just a photocopied book put together but it’s clear and was only $50. I’ll work with it.

Thanks all for the help.

I'm still a bit confused. Do you mean that your manual thickness is the same as c10's manual total thickness (i.e. white and blue sections combined) ?

I have pdf manual with 663 pages and it covers only k8 and k9. k9 part is just supplementary. There's no mention about ABS at all.

What the OP has is a factory service manual, some of them come from the dealer loose leaf. Maybe it varies according to the year of printing, IDK.
Its likely you have an K8 or K9 edition of the manual, it doesn't have abs supplement because it wasn't available on the 2008/9 bikes.

Yes, mine is sold as Service Manual for 2008-2012 models. However, the supplement part covers k9 only.
I'd like to get supplement part for 2010-2016 models too. What is not clear is that does OP's manual cover all model years from 2008 to current, or just 2013 with ABS section.

I'd imagine that would depend on the year of printing. Perhaps he'll let us know.
