Default 1987 CBR1000F MK1 Factory Service Manual PDF

Hey all,
I finally got around to scanning my paper copy of the original FSM for the first generation Hurricane so I thought I'd put it up here for anyone else who was looking for it. Most of the other digitals are for the MK2, which is largely similar to the first gen, but some differences in the front suspension and bodywork, among others, I'm sure.

Here's the link:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/1j8lmf5aqv...anual.pdf?dl=0

It still ranks as one of the better manuals I've seen of this era - certainly more descriptive than similarly dated Yamaha FSM's, and somewhat less bloated than offerings from Suzuki, while maintaining an intuitive structure and form that strikes the delicate balance of providing sufficient information while minimizing time spent flipping pages looking for it. As typical for Honda Service Manuals, every chapter opens with a one-page schematic, complete with torque values and circuit diagrams for a quick reference, followed by troubleshooting and R&I procedures.

At less than 300 pages cover-to-cover, it is about half the size of a modern service manual, owing in large part to the scarcity of electronic controls in yesterday's automotive systems. Hence, service and repair will require an understanding of mechanical components, not electronic ones. The caliper linkage arrangement responsible for stiffening the anti-dive front forks is a perfect example of this elegant and sometimes apparently alien technology that makes these older machines so enchanting - and yet so often infuriating - to repair.

Every effort has been made to ensure that print quality has been maintained. The scan was taken at 300 dpi resolution grayscale to closely match the original, while the wiring diagram was upsized to 600 dpi. The manual is a bound book, and was printed on very lightweight (almost transparent) paper so some tracing has occurred, as well as some dark bands near page edges. These have been cleaned up by hand where possible, but image manipulation was minimal to ensure overall fidelity. As an added step, the file was run through OCR to make text searchable, and bookmarks have been generated to aid navigation. The file weighs in at 119MB

It is my sincere hope that making this manual available will help to keep some of these old bikes on the road and in good, safe, condition. Please distribute freely and fairly, with my compliments

You'd probably want to get the manual for the 90-96. It's here:
