          Those are not from Helm. Photo copies but done pretty good. How do I know? Bought one for my F6B a few years ago.

            Definitely. At the time I thought it was OEM.

              It is pretty comprehensive. I think I paid $129. I will definitely use it.

            I got my $99 Saturday. Very impressed with it . Hard to tell it is not from Helm. I now have a lot of reading to do.

              It sure looks like the Honda manual.
              Just what is the difference?
              Helm is still backordered.

                It's CHEAPER than HELM

                    And probably a copyright violation if all they did was take a 'real' manual and are copying and then selling it. No contact information, no phone number, domain name is totally blocked, no social media presence. I'll stick with Helm and indirectly pay Honda for their sweat and labor as the creator of the manual.

                      I agree. Next time will be an authentic one.

                        I received mine today. the box was mutilated but the manual was ok. The way it is held together does not look good at all. I am thinking of trying to buy a large loose-leaf binder and punching holes in the pages. I believe it would be easier to use and less likely to have problems. The long rivets are not secure and I think they would be a problem working on the bike.

                          The Honda Service Manual is thorough, and a good tool, but does NOT explain how some parts have to be removed without risking damage.

                            How long did it take to get it?

                            I have two service manuals, which is probably one more than I need.

                            I bought the first from the UK dealer selling them on Ebay, then later picked up the Helm version.

                            I don't sense a lot of heartburn here over the copyright issue, but if you'd like a non-bootlegged version, I'll sell the Euro manual for $120. Other than flipping through it, it's unused. I did some comparisons between it and the Helm version in areas that I'd be likely to use, e.g., brakes, suspension, etc. They appeared to be identical.

                            Funny, Honda's inability to provide service manuals for a bike out almost a year. Entropy in action?
