    Obtaining A Proper Workshop Manual

    Habitually, I get manuals for all the vehicles I own and service. I was surprised not to find a Haynes manual for the Crosstourer. There is one for the Twin.

    Where can I get a good manual?
    I found a “reprint” on EBay, but that sounds a bit dodge. Are these legit?
    A Russian site provides the pdf free, that has to be dodge  :005:

    The Russian pdf is fine but has no wiring diagram. PM me and I can link you to both the manual and electrickery diagram (a forum member - Rex - very kindly posted an excellent one in full colour).

    They're on my Google Drive, not on a questionable Russian website.

    You can buy a genuine Honda one, try Fowlers or David Silvers. Last time I got one they were around the £55 quid mark.

    The genuine Honda one is well worth the cost if you plan to do your own maintenance. Two thick manuals with good details. Even down to hose clip orientation.

    Thanks, I've mailed them.
