More 'public service information'
« on: Jul 30, 2017, 16:39:31 »
OK, over a few years I've noticed many people criticizing factory service manuals for not giving enough detail or service 'how to'
I just 'found' Honda Common service manual' which is something required for all basic information. Pretty sure Yamaha and Kawasaki do similar? Suzuki tend to give very specific information in their manuals
The other thing is oil filters.
Lot of people think Honda centrifugal filter on 50~450/500twins isn't 'good' enough. It's actually better than almost all fibre filters (better if you use high rpm)

It's the manual everyone with a Honda needs and almost no-one knows about.  I kinda remember being given the earlier version to borrow in 1978 but don't remember ever doing more than skimming through it (like all 19~21 yr old's, I already 'knew' everything  ;D )
