2019-2020 Honda Service Manual
on: May 10, 2020, 03:24:20 PM
I read some talk if the forum that the Honda service manual is to expensive and many are buying the Haynes manual instead.  I've never been a fan of the Haynes manuals.  They seem to gloss over information and contain generic info in an attempt to fill pages.  I've also found mistakes in a few of them.  I purchase the real McCoy for $41.95US and had it shipped to Canada for  $18.90.  Seemed reasonable to me and is specific for the 2019-20 CB models (no overlay sticker).

Thank you for ordering from Helminc.com!  Your purchase information appears below.

Just dont read the list of specialist tools it ''requires' to work on the bike  :087:
I did and quickly closed the book..
I have done the pre order on the Haynes....just to keep it company on the bookshelf...

I did see that but most of the specialty tools can be substituted with something more common.  I laughed when I saw a Honda specialty tool and it was a tapered punch.

+1

One cannot have too many manuals or tools, or motorcycles for that matter. :001:

I cant see a speciality tool to remove my frigging clutch lever pivot bolt...and I had the two non speciality tools that should do it.
In one way I wish I had never seen DHCBX post but in a greater way...I would rather it happen now than out on a trip somewhere with minimum  resources.
At least I am dealing with it at home..with access to tools and dealer parts...and of course time.

Honda specialty tool is a drill bit.

My main problem is that I can't get a original manual for my '19 without ridiculous shipping costs. From helm inc (from where the op ordered) it would be close to 200 in shipping alone  :230:
I would like to have a factory one but that shipping cost is unacceptable, so I can't wait for the Haynes to come out.

I got o e here I  the UK...a few pence short of 50gbp..surely it cannot be much to ship to Germany?  There is a reduced rate for price ted material over other products...where are you in Germany? I am going to the Post Office in the next village on Monday or Tuesday, I can ask

I don't think he's in Germany looking at the flag, maybe Belgium or possibly Romania (if the first segment is blue not black, i can't quite make it out) Either way he should get it from UK, seems a bit cheaper.
