I'm a real bike geek and have 5 bikes now (just got rid of one, used to have 6). I even have an old microfiche machine and have parts fiches for all my bikes except the new WR. I'm hoping some of the places that sell fiches (like Ebay, etc..) will have one soon.
Having your own microfiche reader (I paid $40 for mine) and fiches is great. You can get really nice big exploded views of how things go together. I do all of my own wrenching and sometimes I take things apart and am not sure of which washer or whatever goes where. The parts fiches are great. The service manuals for bikes don't always have great pictures of everything.
My understanding is that all Yamaha dealers get new fiche cards on a regular basis? Like monthly or something? If this is the case, can I get an "outdated" fiche for a WR from you? Please! :-)

I've been into the shop today and they are keeping the fisches for the time being, as back up for the EPC....however they said they would give me a shout when they decide to get rid, so there may be hope yet
