I found this when looking for a service manual. Factory manual for only $50.

That is a great price if it is legit.  I know it says "These are new, dealer/factory service/shop repair manuals just as the dealers have and use." but I must say that the manual I got from the dealer came in a 3 ring binder not a single book form as this appears to be.

Please do.  I'm not trying to infer anything.  Just will be curious.  When I ordered mine from the dealer I told him I preferred the single book format over the 3 ring binder and he told me that single book format was no longer available.

Personally, id rather have the 3 ring note book variety.  I have scanned my service manuals for my Bonneville and Tbird (now sold) and ran optical character recognition against both.  This way I can look thinks up on my computer and search the document.  In fact, when working on my bikes, I use a tablet, not a hard copy.

That's what I paid for mine, perhaps from the same place (I don't really remember, but the price was exactly the same).

I don't know if this has anything with it  being cheap, but mine had a couple of pages missing. But somebody in this forum copied those pages for me, so I have a complete manual. My missing pages were NOT torn out. It was an obvious printing error. On page 18.9, the reverse side is page 18.12.  My $50.00 manual has no pages 18-10 to 18-11. And another page was printed partly on a fold, make that part of each impossible to read. There could be other defects that I have not yet discovered.

I do not know if  all these $50.00 manuals have such defects.

I ordered one for the Tiger 800.  They have lots of others for the same price.

I'm probably a bit old fashioned (even though I spend 1/2 the day on the computer) and perhaps even a bit odd, but Ikind of like paper for 2 reasons 1) I can make notes on the pages of the history and any peculiarities or tricks I discover while doing the work and 2) I find a certain satisfaction in placing my greasy finger prints on those clean white pages.  Makes me feel as if the book has earned its keep.  And it takes me back to the old days when I used my father's well worn service manuals on all the old hot rods I worked on.
