Genuine Honda CB550 manual
« on: January 07, 2018, 09:08:13 AM »
Hi all - is there such a thing available still? Has anyone got one they would like to sell? I have a Haynes Mnnn but tbh all the bikes I have done in the past have benefitted from a print copy of a works manual and parts list - any help and suggestions much appreciated.

All the 550 manuals are just supplements to the 500 one noting the differences, I can do you a CD with them all as PDF files for a small cost if you want one, some parts books on there as well but not all

Thanks for the replies - I have (I think) pic attached a CB550K3 - the bike was / is just a pile of bits having been stripped down by a previous owner  - I have had digital copies of manuals for some of my other bikes but I don't think you can beat a decent old school factory manual.

Trouble is as I said there is no one manual for the 550, especialy K3, Just the 500 plus supplements

Thanks Bryan - I was being a bit lazy really - I have found and downloaded the manual for the 500 and the 550 supplements and will print them out.

I'm in the process of sending genuine parts book for the CB550F2 and CB550K3 to Ashimoto on the site, he'll scan them into his dropbox and you'll be able to download them from there, hope that's of some use.

Thanks Oddjob - I have now picked mine up here - just need to summon up the willpower (and ink) to print it out.

Can't see a parts book on the USA site, did you mean the supplements for the 550K3 etc

Sorry OJ I was being a bit thick - I meant service manuals not parts book.  I would be massively interested in the K3 parts list as well.
