What year 12f Service manual are the same?
I just received what I though was a service manual on ebay for a 2004 12f, (it wasn't). So before I buy another one, was wondering what years are the same/similar. Also is a 15f manual very similar, if so what years would apply to a 2004 12f?
The prices seem to be all over the place from $5.00 (pdf) to $70.00 depending on the year/model 12f or 15f.
I'm just looking for one, for basic maintenance.
By the way If anyone needs a manual on how to remove your jetski from a crate I now have one, LOL

The 12F did not change much over the years since it was first introduced in 2003 and when ended in 2007. The major change was the jet pump (2006) which might be a great concern to you if you would be doing your own pump bearing maintenance. The rear bearing was initially housed in the rear cone, then it got moved to the pump housing. Other than that, any 12F manual should work for you. But don't get a manual for 15F which has completely different engine specs (different top end) from 12F - but again that's only if you will do any engine maintenance.

Thanks, is there any defference between the 2004 and 2005 models years?
2005 pdf service manaul is only $7.00, was going to just get that one.

The main difference between 04 and 05 are the ECU mapping change (leaner).
The 2005 manual would work just fine if you have a 2004 12F.
