┬*If Money is no object .. all of them ...┬* I use the Clymers ...┬* but there are better pics in the┬* Haynes... and the actual Honda manual is pricey , but very good..┬* The 1200 Haynes┬* ┬*was actually on this site as a download┬* about 4 months ago┬* ┬*.. If you are gonna change tires, or repair┬* a water pump.. then any (like the Clymers) will do.. . But they all give slightly different viewpoints.. so having two is┬* a excellent idea, if a complex job is on the horizon ..┬*Silverdave┬*[img]/forums/images/emoticons/emoticonsxtra/cooldj.gif[/img]

A Honda manual might be one of the best but you'll have to find one on eBay or some such for the 1200. Helm Inc. sells the Honda manuals but their 1200 manual has poor pictures. Their 1100 and 1500 manuals are very good.

I got the Clymer manual first, then tried Ebay for the original Honda Manual.

After four attempts, I finally snaged one for $21.49. The prices are all over the place, saw one for $60, way too much.

I don't know guys, I walked into my Honda dealer, ordered a Honda manual for my 84 and got it in about a week. I think it was about 36.00US. As far as I know the manual is still available from Honda.
