New user, workshop manual

Hi Everyone

Is there still someone out there driving the Varadero 1000 ;-) I just bought myself a nice specimen from 2005 with ABS and about 46'000km. I am in love with this big bike and I am going to sell my KTM 690 Enduro and Suzuki GSX-R 1000 - the Honda will be my only bike now.
As I like to work on the bikes by myself I am looking for a workshop manual. I already found one from 1998 but I would prefer to have one for the 2004 model with injection. Do you know if there are some pdf versions available?

Kind Regards

S Barker


Plenty of people still on Xl100V's.

More international activity here https://honda-adventure-riders.com/index.php?action=forum

Have a look at our annual International meeting (postponed twice now due to covid but planned for 2022)

Lots of useful information on this forum use the search function and you should find posts like this  :


I think the Injection manual is on the Carlslater site.


I wonder what happen if I click on this - Ooops

The Prodded Dog

I can still do all the things I could when I was 21, but now it is with less teeth.


I am in the process of getting used to the bike. Thank you for the tips. On carlsalter is only the carburetor manual. Haynes would be an option, but I prefer the original ;-)
Kind regards


I've had my 2003 pre ABS 30K miler since last Thursday. Using it as a commuter as the electroglide is scary when filtering into Manchester.

Love it. Needs a bit of work on the brakes ( all pads and front rotors) and a new chain but runs smoothly, full service history with it.


There is a genuine used one on eBay at the moment item number 144251372066
