Repair Manual

Postby guitarzan » Thu Feb 12, 2015 3:38 pm



Hi,
I have purchased from Honda a 1994 GL1500 SERVICE MANUAL & ELECTRICAL TROUBLESHOOTING MANUAL. My question is this. If there a difference between what I already have purchased and a Repair Manual?

Thank you
Frank :?:

I am sure someone may correct me but I suspect the terms "service" and "repair" for a technical manual explaining how to troubleshoot, take things apart and put them back together are just different words meaning the same thing.

I think you have purchased the correct manual to work on your Gold Wing. There are other manuals available such as those from Clymer or Haynes but you have the Honda which is usually the best.

I have made it a point to buy the manual for whatever bike I buy. Usually I will get Honda manuals from Helminc.com

Helm Inc. sells genuine Honda Manuals and usually a little cheaper than the dealer will sell them, plus they are delivered to my door and I don't have to drive across town and then make another trip to pick up after the dealer gets it in.

They're the same thing. What you have are the best manuals you can get for your bike.

So who needs a manual when you have this site? When I did my timing belts I just took the laptop out to the garage and followed the step by step with pictures that was probably a lot more detailed than the manual! When I had a small electrical problem I posted it here, had an answer within a few hours and had the problem fixed the next day. I can't see spending the kind of money Honda wants for their manuals when this fine resource is available for the asking. Thank you, thank you thank you!!!
