I may be missing something, but I don't really understand the question. Are you asking whether the service manuals from one year are relevant for a different year of bike? Or something else?Just what the title states, are the Factory Service Manuals just about the same? Close enough for the new owners to read up on?
Exactly the information I was looking for, just didn’t come out correctly in my explanation, on the first try.Manuals 2010-2011 cover all the changes to X models. 2008-2009 cover earlier non X bike. Changes were predominately better suspension and other changes were just cosmetic.
