Gl 1200 Manual

Postby frozentundra » Fri Jul 15, 2016 10:33 am



Does anyone know how to get ahold of a shop manual for a 1984 GL1200.
I see that Haynes and Clymer Manuals are available. When I had my 84 Aspencade I had purchased the actual HONDA shop manual from my dealer. Who knew I would need it again decades later?

There are some Manual downloads on this site. Not sure which ones.
I had a 84 Interstate for 12 yrs. Sold around 1997. And have been riding BMW ever since. But keep all my books of every car or motorcycle Ive owned. I still have 2 books from England I bought while stationed there. I still have a book for my second car I bought at 18yr. (67 now). 1959 Morris Minor convertible. Now that's a car wish I still had.( $650). So I have last count 110 bike/car books. Ya they didnt always have computers you know. :)

The shop manuals not on this site. I think I can get one from ebay. I want to have a hard copy so I can look at in the garage and flip pages. Online is great too but.. I still like to own the book. I'm hoping to have someone point me to a wing specialist mechanic.
