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!

Thanks jsonder for clearing up that little mystery. I hope you didn't have to pay loads more money for the privilege of having that sticker.

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)

Must have been a glitch - both manuals are now the same cost $US49.95

Are they any good?

Yes they are good, weight about 3lb. Sometimes you need to refer to several sections to get the full picture of something , but almost essential if you plan to work on the bike yourself. I'm ploughing my way through it & have found lots of stuff I would't have known otherwise.

The first reply in this thread has the link to one of the $35 versions. 

I needed it yesterday for the windscreenectomy that I performed.   :008:

Does Honda provide a PDF version of the service manual anywhere?

Not that I am aware of.  If you hope to do more than change your own oil, it is a good thing to have.

My Honda service manual turned up today and I have to say it's better than I expected and anticipated, well worth the money, a must have!
