2012 550 Service Manual

I've posted this before and still haven't found the proper manual. So I have the engine fully apart as I?m rebuilding my crank after it seized, long story posted a thread about a month ago. Anyway before even touching the bike I got a shop manual that was for several different machines. I was wondering if some one had one for my specific engine because I found certain sections were completely different in the shop manual. I am going to be mostly relying on the shop manual to get it back together properly because I haven?t done this sort of thing before.

I got it from another forum some guy labelled it as being the 550 manual but a lot of the stuff was different.

Download the country cat one. Itís free anyways and look at it. If itís still way different then I would question whether you have a 550 but have you ordered parts for it?

The 550 is almost identical to the 700. Iíve rebuilt both engines. A few differences such as the cylinder and piston related parts thatís it.

Do you have a picture of the cylinder or clutch cover? VIN number? Would help tell if it is a 550 or not.
