Are you folks saying the E-Version is not a download and/or not printable?

Thanks for being on the case with this Shendy, just ordered the printed version with Pidu's 10% voucher recommendation at £14.49.

Best result for me from this forum yet.

Cheers from sunny Berkshire!

Legibility is increasingly an issue

No you cannot download it.
You can print the sections but it will cost you a fortune; better buy the printed version.
I understand your point but I personally find the black and white illustrations in Haynes manuals hard to read at the best of times.

The ability to view photos in colour and zoom in or - occasionally - print parts of the manual is a real step forward for me. But if I can just take the laptop into the garage and view it there, I probably won't need to print much. Either way, it's a win-win.

I'm actually thinking of buying both the paper version and an annual subscription. After all, if you've just spent £12,000 on a bike, why worry about an extra £17?

If you can print it, a lot of software will allow you to select printer and then you "might" be able to "print to pdf". I have done that a number of times with online material.

I bought a copy of the Real Honda Shop manual off E bay, a little pricey, but if you buy the hard (nice 3 ring binder) copy, you get the download too.
So now I have it on my PC as well as my Surface.
Very handy.

As I do with all of my bikes I purchased the OEM Shop/Service Manual. For the first time it bit me. The picture on 18-5 shows the rear wheel spacers reversed from the directions on 18-9. The directions are correct. Bit me 3 times before I took it into the Honda shop to ask what was wrong. We all got a good laugh out of it, and I got a bill.

The Haynes website says the manual covers models;

What's covered:
Honda CRF1000A 2016 - 2019
Honda CRF1000D 2016 - 2019
Honda CRF1000A2 Adventure Sport 2018 - 2019
Honda CRF1000D2 Adventure Sport 2018 - 2019

But strangely, if I enter the reg number of my UK DCT bike, it says there is no manual for it.

Reminds me of an '07 BMW X5 4.4 I owned (pre-2008 recession), now things are much different :crying: where forum members were complaining about getting 14 mpg and having to buy premium gasoline/petrol. I made a similar comment to yours since my X5 was $75k and could not believe the petty behaviour of the forum members. Thanks for that bit of humor :grin2:
