service manual

Post by burntice51 »



Does anyone know a site where I can download a free service manual for a 1994 Gl 1500 SE. This site used to but it doesn't anymore.

Thanks

I have a question about service manuals too, if I can.
I have a 1994 SE. I have an opportunity to buy a Honda factory service manual but it's for the 1995 models.
The cost difference between the Honda manual and the Clymers is small and not an issue.
Are there so many differences between the two that I should go with a Clymers, which covers several years, or should I go with the Honda manual for 1995 Goldwings?

Definitely the Honda. The difference between the two years will be minimal, and the Honda has far better, more in-depth and more ACCURATE information than the Clymer.

Alright. I'll call and see if the gentleman still has it and go get it if he does.
Thank you WingAdmin.

If he does not have it you might try Helminc.com which is the official supplier of Honda Publications. I think they have yours in stock for less than $70. They do list the official part number so you might want to take it to your local dealer and see if he can beat their price.

Thank you. I went back to craigslist and now I can't find the listing! It had been on there for 2 months!
If it had only been on there a few hours or a few days, I might have just pulled the trigger and got it. But it had been there 2 months! I didn't think one more day would make any difference.

Oh well, shoulda, coulda, woulda,... :roll:

Just ordered my Honda shop manual from Helminc.com. Brand new and less than half the $120 the local dealer wanted! :D
