$55 including $20 shipping to the UK

Same here. Received it in Canada in about a week. A must for serious, less serious or not serious at all mechanic wanna-be  :164:

Aye - but I don't know if I'd rather it ended up like the one for my CRF which I never got round to opening, or the one for my GS which is falling apart and covered in oily thumb prints!  :001:

Let me guess... The one falling apart is the one you have more kms  with :008:

The CRF designs are usually pretty trouble free and the access is easy.

I will admit that my CRF manual does not have nearly as many greasy finger prints as the manual for the old NX250 had.  This is partially due to the screw and locknut valve adjustment of the CRF, compared to the shim under bucket adjustment of the NX250 (that required removing the camshafts to replace shims).  Plus, I had to trouble shoot a failing cdi on the NX250 upon purchase while the CRF was obtained new.  Also, I rode the NX250 a bit over 24000 miles first as a dirt bike and later as my street bike, while the CRF only has 13000 miles as a trail bike.

You have a point - 2000 miles on the CRF, 114000 on the GS!

Your mileage on the two bikes tells the true story.   :002:

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

Cost $55 (36) was dispatched the same day I ordered it and arrived within a few days despite being quoted 7-10 days it was here inside 3 days. Guy sent me an e-mail when it was dispatched including a picture of the actual package.

I've no intention of selling my CB500X as it's the perfect bike but should I get a second project bike.

An excellent investment that will hopefully pay for itself by the time I've fitted the auxiliary lights this weekend - clear colour wiring diagrams included  :002:

I had same experience - very good service, plus cost of postage was a fair bit higher than he charged ($31.75 to UK but charged $22).

just as a heads up, it's on sale for $35 USD right now. $41 shipped is pretty freaking hard to beat.
