I like being able to carry parts catalogs and manuals on my phone, tablet and notebooks, and being able to zoom details on my 4K monitor. It's a lot easier to collect .pdfs than a hundred lbs of print media and a library can fit on a MicroSD card. I have dead tree media too but I'm not stuck in the past. Bonus, I print individual pages to take notes on and leave with one bike while working on others. The world is awash in free and cheap used PCs and tablets so scattering those around my shops works a treat for much more than motorcycling and I can order parts without leaving my shop.

Those who resented learning computers back in the 1990s and froze their preferences against learning new tech will not agree but you can take great advantage of tech so I do. My workstations have dual monitors (on monitor arms which leave my desk free) so I can do stuff like open a parts catalog page on one while searching and ordering parts on the other. I do it with everything, not just bikes and the time saved is more than worth it.

I cheaped out when visiting brother in Colorado.

They had a whole table of manuals at the Pueblo Colorado HD dealer. Used and New .

Spent 50 bucks on owners manuals, parts manuals, fsm books, All later model evo books.
They even had the supplement books.

Sale was like 75% off. We were there to pick up a handlebar switches for his scooter.
Maybe make day trip and see if ya get lucky. Or call and ask maybe.
PDF manuals require shade to read the screen.
Speaking from experience here.

Those are worth buying extras if keeping the bike. The stock parts are much better than aftermarket (I've bought both recently).
