I don't if anyone or everyone out there knows this but for 7 dollars a YEAR you can join up with the HRCA "Honda Riders Club of America" and have online access to any honda shop manual and there not just the general manual they are very detail full manuals I got one for my 88 xr and it has been the best 7 dollars I have ever spent I signed up about 2 years ago so I don't know if the price is the same but what ever it is I think it worth it

I got a new bike and it doesnt mention the free manual...just some generic all model manual. tried and tried...


Q: How do I, as a retail consumer, obtain owner's manuals and service manuals?

Owner's manuals and service manuals are available from your authorized Honda dealer. They are also available from Helm Incorporated. Helm can be contacted on-line at They can also be contacted by calling toll-free (888) 292-5393 between 8 AM and 6 PM EST, Monday through Friday. If you are a paid HRCA Member, you have viewing access to one model-special service manual (back to 1994) for a period of one year from the date of choosing or until your membership expires, whichever comes first.

Q: Is there a basic motorcycle maintenance manual?

Honda also has a manual that is helpful for those who want to learn more about how their Honda operates. It is titled the Honda Common Service Manual. Over 400 pages of diverse technical information and an attractive binder for just $48 plus shipping and handling. All Members have viewing access to the Common Service Manual on the HRCA Clubhouse website.

$5000 a bike, and they nickle and dime you over a shop manual and tool kit...
