I have checked with both Honda and Helm Inc, and it does not appear they have produced one yet.

Each Service Manual is model specific and contains easy to read text sections supported by top quality photography and illustrations. A comprehensive General Information section offers the experienced technician at-a-glance service data without the need to review each specific section for specifications and tolerances.

Don’t leave anything to chance when servicing your Honda Motorcycle, Scooter or ATV, use only Genuine Honda Service Manuals.

It is cheaper than a service call for an oil change.

Are you friggin kidding? An oil change is more than $166? I never ever had my bike in for one, but it sure doesn't take an hour. I do my own, and fifteen minutes is about what it takes, and even using probably the most expensive non dealership products (Amsoil oil and filter), my product does not cost $65.

My wife's car, for the dealership to do an oil change, is $49.95 plus tax. I am now also doing that myself.

Sorry Viking, I can only go by what others have ranted about. I probably over stated it, so okay, two oil changes. Maybe I should have said an air filter change.
At any rate, I personally always do my own maintenance so I don't know what it costs for a service call but I do know an hours labor is not cheap.

I don't have a 2018 wing but if I did, I would not balk at $166 for a service manual. That is all meant to say I guess.

Sorry to raise your hackles.

I don't think that is a bad price, because it includes the Electrical Manual which is a necessity, especially with the 2018...

I think that Helm prints the factory manuals anyway.

I think I'll order it before the next service is due. BTW, I see there are 2 drain plugs-1 for the crankcase and 1 for the DCT, but only 1 fill hole. If they're connected, why can't they drain out of one spot-which ever is lower?

Evidently another quart gets stuck between them if you only do one, so all got to come out, so I'm told. I wonder where the oil pickup is?

Anyone purchased the service manual from Helminc? If yes, please kindly show some sample pages. Planning to get one, but don't know what the content look like.
