Likewise, mine came with the bike from the seller. Unfortunately, he didn't have the owner's manual and I eventually found one on eBay. It was still expensive but worth it. It has some info not in the FSM.

I ended up with a electronic copy of both from Motor Manuals. $5 for each in a searchable PDF.

I like the hard copies so I can write in the margins, hi-lite certain areas and note the modifications I made to my bike that are different from OEM. I also make notes of VIN, dates, miles, sources of parts and people/places who do repairs. I'm an analog guy in a digital world.

FYI, that's likely pirated.

The 1st thing I bought for the 2011 Nightster as I do for all my vehicles is all the factory manuals. Owners, Service, Parts, Electrical Diagnostic.
