Default New Honda Rider

Hey all just got an 05 f4i and I didn't get the owners manual for it. I can see on the instrument cluster that there is something for the gas gauge. Can anyone tell me when it lights up? Does it only come on when low on fuel or should it always be on?

Also does anyone have a copy of the owners manual? I found a few places that have the service manual but would be cool if I can find the owners manual for the bike.

Any help would be appreciated.

Brian

repair manual is not hte same as an owners manual

for an owners manual you'll either have to source your own used copy or get a new one from a dealership

Same mechanics, just different body.

Cheap place for hard copy for 2005 is hard to come by.

If you want a digital version for $10...
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Honda...205|240%3A1318

The service manual that's floating around for the 01-03 F4i is works just fine for the '05.

You can get a little more out of it from there. The bars will actually start disappearing entirely after it gets to all four blinking. I've had mine down to only two bars there / blinking before.
