PostSubject: Brief introduction and question   Sat Aug 11, 2018 11:08 am

Good morning Silverwing fans.  I'm a new guy located in Southern IL, and have owned numerous bikes and several Helixes, but just picked up a 2004 SilverWing FSC600A a couple of days ago (my first).  Looking forward to corresponding and learning a bit more about this bad-boy on this forum.  I've looked a little, but I'm having a hard time finding a totally free OEM Honda full Service Repair manual in free PDF down load online.  Also, are the Wings from 2002-2012 really all the same as some of these shop manuals imply?  Thanks, Michael.

Pay and get the real Honda manual thru dealer---would then have all the necessary up dates. I think the SilverWings from first ones on---same except for ABS, O-2 sensor, glove box doors.

Hello, Michael.
I'd do what John suggests.

Good evening Michael, and welcome from another Southern Illinoisan. We may be somewhat neighbors. I live in Randolph County, to be exact.


Out of curiosity I have been tinkering with my Swing, taking parts off and then back on. I too am possibly going to be invest in a Honda Owners Manual as well. Thank goodness for You Tube. They have a lot of great tutorials.

Welcome from o-HI-o and yes the OEM is a good investment, shop around and you will find one, a used works fine unless you're picky.

Just looked on ebay, there are many new and used Service Manuals. Depending on the year your're wanting. I just purchased a Service Manual myself. I figured that was $39 dollars well spent. Will save me a lot of head scratching.

Welcome and enjoy your Silver Wing. I have to agree with the majority, snag a manual on eBay or somewhere. I did that. This forum can not be a part of giving away manuals that are not free in the marketplace. Good luck.

I bought two manuals as downloadable pdf's, one for my Silverwing and one for the Goldwing. I think I paid about $8 for the download. However, I find in the shop I really prefer to view hard copy. So on a wintery day I'll spend time printing them off on my home printer, and compiling them in a couple three ring binders.

I'll echo what other people have said, check Ebay.

I got a 2002 OEM manual for only $27 shipped, so it can be done for relatively cheap.

Welcome to SW! You'll have way more fun than you ever had on those Helixes.
I like PDF ver's of the manuals and have one loaded onto a thumb drive on my SW key.
