Or what needs to be done with each service, or when the next service is due, or what the proper. Play is in the chain, just off the top of my head. (I freely admit, I do tend to overthink everything)
So you do not do your own maintenance?

Thank you for sharing the manual! That's really generous and thoughtful of you and much appreciated. I wish I would have had it a couple weeks ago when my bike wouldn't start and I couldn't figure out why... turns out there is a fuse hidden under the side panel that I didn't know about! LOL.

The manual will definitely come in handy!

I recently bought a 2017 cb500f and I can't seem to find the manual for sale anywhere. Has anything changed? Will this one work?

Thanks

Changes to the CB 500 were made in 2016.

Any manual that includes the year 2016 will apply to 2017, 2018.

Don't know if the downloadable manual includes 2016.

Lots of manuals on eBay...prices from $20 USD and up.

The $20 one is on a CD, not a print version.......

But were changes made to the engine and mechanics? Mechanically I thought they were very similar (if not the same).

AFAIK...the changes were to the gear shift mechanism, the size of the gas tank, the way the front fairing is attached on the R version, and the design of the tail section on the R and F models.

Yes, you are correct, all current years are mechanically the same, except for the improved shifter.
