Unicorn wanted, um, 2018 UK workshop manual....

500 mile / week commute + Honda service costs = Unicorn required.

Failing a real life Unicorn, the service manual for a 2018 ABS LED bike......

You may have to settle for the Haynes 2013-2015 version which will cover the basics and rely on this forum for the rest.

Hi,
     I have the Honda manual, not sure which year it goes up to but it covered my 2013 model so must go to 2015 at least, i could take a look if you are interested. I bought it from the states as Haynes had'nt put theirs out until later.

All the best
                     Stew.

Got one from Helmic...$58.

Cost to post to UK was...ready for this....$770 :435:

Luckily a mate of mine went to the states for a few weeks, got one sent to his mates address, he brought it back for me.

Covers all models up to and including the 2018 model, with details of the differences.

Told the dealer....he was not overly impressed!

No idea why theres such a cost to post to the UK, perhaps because Honda dont release it here, Helmic are just trying to screw us...or in line with all good conspiracies, perhaps Honda have told them to do so... :109:

Can't remember who sold me mine (it was from the states) but in 2013 it was 35 ish including p&p.
Glad you got sorted.

Possible small scale business opportunity for our cousins across the pond. As far as Im aware, nothing wrong about selling on a second hand manual as long as a price can be reached that covers postal.....
