Question Question on 919 Shop Manuals

I am going to try and grab a Honda Shop Manual off Ebay for my 2006 919.

Currently there is an auction for a 2002 Manual...........

What changes have happened since 2002? What is this manual going to be missing to or be differant compared to my bike?

Off the top of my head, I think the front forks might be differant ie: damper adjustment.

Anything else?

For what it's worth... the 02 manual covers 02-03. My copy from Helm came with a bunch of updated/corrected pages. After 03, you're on your own.

I'm interested in this question as well since I'm planning on doing most maintenance (the shop manual is always one of my first purchases after getting a new bike). I'll be keeping my eyes on eBay, but curious to know about '06 changes -- I thought it was just color (?). Also noticed that most of the frame sliders on eBay are for '02-'05 so I'm wondering what's up. Thanks.

Read the sticky thread...

I hate to sound like a broken record here... There is a sticky thread Helpful Topics for New 919 owners at the top of this forum. It will explain the differences in model years.

Honda manuals are the best, IMO. If you search enough you can find it in .pdf.

I have always used Honda manuals. I still have the 1970 Honda CB350 shop manual stashed away in the archives.

I am also in search of a 919 service manual (would also like an owners manual). I have searched for a downloadable version on this site and have found where some very helpful people posted links, but they are not active anymore.

Can somebody post a link (or whatever method works best) where a few of us newer guys could get a copy of the manual - it would be greatly appreciated. I have an '03.
Thanks in advance, Mike

There are getting to be too many Mikes on the board.

Own very own razorbike should be able to hook you up with a CD copy of the service manual. Send him a PM and tell him Mike said to give Mike a copy.

I was going to bid on that manual you got off E-Bay but since you posted here I figured you could have it - especially since I virtually stole that 919 out of your home state.

OK...OK!

Been in the woods most of the weekend.

As it seems we have several new members round here I'll go public with my previous 919 manual offer again. If you want a free copy of the PDF, PM me your mailing address and I'll send you a CD. Snail mail - not email.
It is 176 megs so it's way too big to email. Yes, I said FREE. No catch - just my way of helping out fellow 919 riders. Please specify if you're on MAC or PC. Take note that the version I have is for the '02-'03 model. This version will cover up to the current '06 919 but doesn't include the suspension changes that were made starting in '04.

It's a fool who looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart.
