I'm not poking fun at anyone, just curious. I am usually so excited the day I get a new toy that I spend all my time with it. To continue my time with it after the wife tells me it is bed time, I sit in bed and read the manual cover to cover. Just me?

Did anyone else find typos?

The one I picked up on is actually pretty funny...

see page 136, mine says:

"Engine design

 

longitudinally mounted twelve-cyclinder, four-cycle opposed twin engine with one overhead cam each, air cooling, oil-cooled exhaust system and electronic fuel injection"

 

Mine came with the opposed-twin, but the inline 12 sure sounds like fun, hehe.

 

Beside that, I find the "oil-cooled exhast system" statement interesting. Does the oil actually cool the exhaust system? Am I missing something or does that sound very odd?

... the oil is circulated around the head and near the exhaust valve area, to take away the heat into the oil and to be cooled via the oil cooler....

That is why since 1994, when the new R11XX series were launched,they are known as OILHEADS thumbsup.gif

When I was first introduced to computers by the company I then worked for, the IT Department set up a helpline for new users, but said they would only help if we met them half way by following the RTFM principle before we rang them with our question.

 

RTFM?? Read The F***ing Manual!

 

Isn't a bad principle and have certainly seen questions asked here that have probably taken longer to write and submit than it would have taken the enquirer to RTFM :-)

I read it, and continue to do so when faced with the occasional question.

 

Sadly, it's less informative than any I've ever had.

 

Unless I need warnings. That it has. That it has in SPADES.

Thanks, that makes complete sense and is pretty much what I expected. I would have said it differently in the manual though, like "oil-cooled cylinder head"... maybe the translators got it wrong, hehe.
