there is a service manual available on here to down load. it's 1100 pages. I don't remember where I found it. I'll see if I can figure out how to down load off my computer.

If anyone needs paperback workshop/service manual for Meteor 350 or 650 Twins - then reach out to RPC, they can ship it across. They are reachable at info@roadpowercustoms.com

Hi

I think Haynes have said they will not produce any new modern car manuals.  Not sure about Bike ones.

The best manuals, if you can get them, are from the manufacturer of course and Clymer also makes manuals, which are generally considered a notch above Haynes in accuracy and completeness. When Honda made the ST1100/1300 models,(Pan European across the pond), they did sell the manuals and ST owners overwhelmingly list them as Honda #1, Clymer #2 and Haynes as a last resort.

With our RE products, so far at least, we have managed to find workarounds to get the 650 and 350 manuals out to the owners via the internet, when RE has decided it will not sell them directly to anyone. Even dealers can not get paper copies of the manuals.

Seems a short sighted position to take, costing RE potential profit, as there will always be DIY'ers who can do the work themselves and will find ways, as we have, to get the manuals needed anyway.

I'm not sure how the RPC company mentioned above is selling paper copies and getting away with it, as there are copyright laws that can be applied to them. Maybe RE is not pursuing protecting their copyright?

however the fact remains that this manual is full of even very trivial errors.
The last chapters are about the various checks to be performed practically they are a copy and paste.
In RE they have never been so precise.
A dear friend of mine is completely translating this manual into Italian and is a discreet technician working on freight ships.
In his previous work on the workshop manual of serious errors he had counted and corrected 86
Emotions are difficult to describe, better "live them"

I know Road power customs do some factory work shop manuals but they are costly, you may be able to get a pdf version printed into a paper version if you can find right printer which would be a way round it.
