the clymers does have some pictures. does the honda factory service manual have those also??. just asking, an pictures aint everything.
good instruction is.. . it paints its own picture.

Hi Ted,

Yes, the manuals offered on this website are factory service manuals.

You are correct that you must pay to download a Clymer manual on their website. They do offer a deal where you can download some free manuals but if I remember correctly none of the frees ones were for Honda ATVs. They were automobile manuals.

@retro, you are so right about the factory manuals being better. I could not find one for my old Yamaha Big Bear so I had to buy from Clymer. The Clymer was very confusing and I had to flip back and forth from chapter to chapter and section to section. It covered too many models. Now, I'm sure part of my confusion was related to my newbie mechanic status. Also, the photos are a bit dark.

I am not able to save/download the forum manuals from Google on my MacBook Pro. Just FYI.

Reading a manual on my phone? I'd rather be run over by a reindeer. I consider my Mac part of my toolbox. The greasy fingerprints wipe right off.

Well, I just browsed the google drive manuals on my android phone using Firefox browser and downloaded two of the Honda service manual PDFs, then opened and browsed them both on my phone. I can print them from my phone too, by sending to my network laser printer via wifi. It sounds to me like Apple products (or google?) might be stealing everyone's freedom...?
@LedFTed @GirlsRideToo if either of you would like to try to download service manual PDFs for your bikes shoot me a PM... I'll host the files for you on my web site and provide you with a link to a page where you can get 'em. My offer stands for any other member too.

You shouldn't have to sign in to google to download. Check that google domains are not being blocked by Noscript?
