    Workshop Manual

    Hi folks.
    Just curious if anyone has purchased a workshop manual from ebay. There is a chap selling them (printed) for £30 (he's in Wales..uk)
    If any of you can verify the quality of his re-prints I might buy one because there doesn't appear to be a Clymer or Haynes manual for the Crosstourer

    You can buy the original Honda factory manual from Helm Inc online for 50 bucks.


    You can if you're in the US, but they have a rediculous shipping charge of $253.37 plus $39.95 handling charge to the UK. That makes it a whopping $343.32 altogether  !   :087:

    I've queried this with them in the past and they refused to give a reason. Obviously they don't want to ship abroad   :006:

    That's nuts, 5X the cost of the product to ship it? It must be some type of licensing thing through Honda.

    You should be able to get a genuine one from somewhere like David Silvers or Fowlers, last time I got one they were around fifty quid from memory.
