Repair Manual

Postby SAILOR » Sat Jan 29, 2011 10:41 am



Need a repair manual for my 84 Aspencade. I'm wondering what the differences is between the Clymer motorcycle manual and the Haynes Manual. I already purchased the Haynes manual and I'm wondering how much more detail the Clymer manual has it it. I would like to do all my own work and I'd like the best manual possible, and am not against buying the Clymer if it truely is better. What is the best repair manual and how does it compare the the Haynes manual?

If you want the best, keep an eye on e-bay for a honda mantaince manual. Some seem to think they are worth gold and your two first born. Be patient and keep looking. A good price from time to time does happen.
Enjoy the ride. They are all good, just some better than others.

The Honda manual is definitely the one you want. It's a bit pricey, but can be had new for $40 at Helm: Honda Goldwing GL1200A/I Aspencade/Interstate 1984-87 Shop Manual

If I'm going to do this I might as well have the best.

Just ordered that manual.
