Yes there is a workshop manual. If you google it or do a search on this forum, you should find it . It' produced in the US I believe. Covers all models.

###Link removed as supplier is selling unauthorised copies of the original manual which is copyright theft###

Try at the above addy

Have you seen the size of the manual, it's 280mmx220mmx28mm & it's worth the cost, especially when you think what it could save you. Factored in to the cost of the bike, the price is very little. Think of it as a accessory.

Additionally, the 2014 version is unchanged.  Get it at the good price.

Ordered the service manual tonight.  Nice thing to have, and a fair price.  The owners manual has info on ordering the manual too on page 122 (English version)  but maybe in other languages the page might be the same?  ~ Butch

Honda US site links to Helm Inc for service manuals

http://helminc.com/helm/welcome_retail_ahc.asp

Finally found the CB500 series manual.  No detailed info or pics though of the manual which is a bit annoying when trying to decide if it will be useful for myself  :006:

Here's an odd thing, following link for helminc, the manual part no is 61MGZ01, while link I gave for ###copyrighted material-illegal link### quotes part 61MGZ00. There is also quite a price difference, I find this baffling. Am I missing something? (apart from grey cells)

Got mine in the mail yesterday. Didn't open it yet but I was surprised how heavy the package was.

I bought the 61MGZ00 version of the manual and just received it a few days ago.  I'm interested in understanding the differences. 

Do you think it could relate to the change in the first valve check?   

Or possibly they just corrected a few typos?

There are no changes in the Honda Service Manual for the cb500 family.

The updates are just sticker for the cover showing that 61MGZ01 is for 2013-2014 bikes.  Nothing in the manual was changed.  Order the cheaper 61MGZ00 as that is what is sent with the stickers for the cover.

I know, I bought the 01 version to be sure it had the "updates".  There aren't any!
