Typo in 02 wr426 repair manual !

I used the Yamaha repair manual to check my valve clearances today and did a double take, I thought I was going crazy. Page 3-21, top left diagram shows the cams exposed from left side of bike and mis labeled them intake on left(two valves), and exhaust on right, (three valves).... these bikes have three intake valves right? Only a big deal when selecting proper feeler gage.

It was in the list of torque values in the Maintenance Specs (WR426F) page 2-12 in my book, just after the lubrication chart, the headings are Part to be tightened, thread size, Q'ty Tightening torque. Look for Oil Drain bolt (crankase, then the the specs are M12 x 1.5, Qty 1, 20Nm 2.m.kg and 1.4 ft-lb it is the 1.4 ft-lbs that is incorrect it should be 14
Hope you find it, or that your manual is correct...
