The Honda VT500 is the ideal bike for the rider who wants to have a comfortable ride and look good simultaneously, but isn’t too fussed about speed. With a 491cc engine, the VT500 provides more than enough power to take the fast lane by storm, but with its 100mph top speed, the bike would be more suited to the daily commute rather than a track day. The bike features an extended saddle with a rear lip for added passenger safety, along with wide grip handlebars that provide comfortable manoeuvrability. But naturally, the key appeal to the VT500 has to be those vintage looks, with that circular front headlamp and chopper-like body panels that are sure to grab all the right attention while cruising at night.

As an older model, parts are gradually becoming more and more difficult to source for the VT500, and as I’m sure you’re well aware, this is reflected in the fee you’ll end up paying at the garage. However, the majority of that fee is actually the product of the mechanic’s labour and that certainly isn’t going to be cheap. These service and repairs charges can really begin to mount up over the course of a year, until you’re paying well into the thousands of dollars just to keep your pride and joy on the road. But surely there must be a cheaper alternative to prevent your motorcycle from piling up the debt?

Well, the solution is the VT500 manual. This one-time investment is exclusively written to deal with the VT500c, so you’ll have an in depth guide on every aspect of your bike’s mechanical, electronic and aesthetic parts. As you read through the manual, you’ll quickly begin to learn how parts relate to one another, allowing you to pinpoint exactly why your bike is malfunctioning and giving you the skills to quickly remove and replace the culprit damaged part.

The Honda manual will also give you the skills you need in order to carry out your own service on your bike, allowing you to prevent parts from becoming damaged in the first place. By simply keeping an eye on simple problems such as corrosion and wear, you can stop malfunctions in their tracks before they end up stopping you out on the road. This makes for a much safer ride overall and will provide you with that much needed performance boost that can be so easily lost through neglect. So save your cash and rejuvenate your bike today with the manual.
