Sorry, no. Honda made the site owner remove all service manuals. About the only chance at one would be from Helm Inc., if they have one out yet. Otherwise, your Honda dealership may be able to get you one.

I've been thinking about getting one for my 2016 GL1800. In the manuals area here the only one is for the 2012-2015 and it's Helm.

I do see the 2012-2016 one at Wingstuff.com. I haven't really dug into anything on mine yet to need a service manual. I figure at some point I'll need to. The most extensive thing I've done so far is to install my lower cowl lights and hook them up so they also function as turn signals. I did a pretty good job except for routing the wire that goes up to the side mirror turn signals. There were no instructions for installing lights that told how to do that. So, for now, where out in the open that wire is just taped to the plastic out of sight for the most part.

Would a service manual help me with all that and getting things apart to be able to route it inside without having to use tape to good plastic parts? Do ya'll think a service manual is really worth $128? I guess if it's good it'll more than pay for itself in the lack of labor costs for not having to pay Honda techs to do something, right?

The Helm service manuals ARE the Honda service manuals. Helm is the official distributor for Honda service manuals.

I would definitely not attempt to work on our bikes without a service manual, if for nothing else the wide array of torque values for various fasteners. Wire routing is another good reason, as is the very complex wiring diagrams that you really need in order to diagnose electrical issues.
