    Hello from Bucks

    Hi all. I got my new Crossrunner delivered last week ready for 1st March. So far I've done about 80 miles on it, owing to the awful weather today. I must say I'm well impressed, not having had a V4 before (though I've had Hondas before, as well as many other makes in the 50 years I've been riding). A friend of mine has had a last-gen VFR800 for several years and we've both been impressed by it. For myself now though I needed something with a less sporty riding position, hence the Crossrunner. Whilst I'll let the dealer do the servicing while it's under warranty, I intend then to service it myself, as I've always done. Hopefully by then there'll be a Haynes manual....

    Hi and welcome.

    There is a Honda service manual available, though it's for the 2015 model but I can't imagine there's too much difference and the engine hasn't changed that much from the old 800.

    Enjoy the bike!  :031:
