Wanted to see if anyone has purchased the service manual through their dealership for the CBR300R. I found it on helminc.com for $106 plus tax/shipping. Thought that is a little steep. The dealer I deal with said he couldn't order it. Any luck anywhere else?

Just wanting to do the maintenance on my new bike.

Been searching everywhere online and haven't found one yet. I've read you could order a 250r manual and it's pretty close but I'm going to wait and get a 300 manual.

Your Owners Manual should have all the necessary info that you'd need to do most of the regular scheduled maintenance.

The Factory Service Manual, while nice to have, isn't necessary until you get into jobs like the Valve Clearance Inspection/Adjustments, troubleshooting the various electrical systems, or when doing bigger repairs like re-building the engine, etc.

I do agree that $106 seems a bit pricy for the CBR300R Service Manual... I have half a dozen Honda Service Manuals that I've bought through Helm Inc. over the years, with the one for my CBR250R being the most expensive at $65 plus shipping.

Yes, but is there any rule against some member who has a digital manual or agrees to copy selected parts of the manual from announcing on the forum that they have said manual or excerpt and agreeing to forward it by email if another member contacts them? I don't have one by the way and don't think I'll part with $106 for one since that seems about double what I paid for my last one for the Grom, but I would not hesitate to beg for a free pdf file if that becomes an option.

Actually, Helm does have the service manual in stock for the CBR300R... did you see the link to the Helm website in post# 3 on the first page of this thread? The item# is 61K3300.

Those service manuals that you linked to are bootleg copy machine knockoffs. Under US copyright law, whoever is selling these has no legal right to do so.

Posting links to these bootleg copies is not allowed on cbr300forum.com:

CBR300R/CBR300F Service Manual

Link deleted

This seems like a good deal. Does anyone else have this service manual? I want to do my own service, and I'm wondering if this manual is difficult to follow if you aren't an experienced service tech?

The Service Manual that you linked to is a pirated copy of the factory Honda Service Manual.

Links to such illegal pirated material is not allowed on the CBR300forum.com site...

To answer the question about how much prior mechanical skill you have to do...yes, a little. I mean it assumes you know how to disconnect a variety of fasteners for example. I would say if you attempted something like a valve check, you would still have some questions after reading the manual. Actually, the owner's manual is pretty good for this bike. Like most service manuals, there is tons of stuff on fuel injection that you will probably never use. I bought a pirated copy by accident. It's is the same as the Helm's service manual, just copied. To bad you didn't want the R3 service manual. I ended up giving it away when I decided to trade in my R3 last week. I did flip through the pages once.
