I have found dealer's set up manuals to be helpful in reassembling. Does anyone have a dealer set up manual for the CB450 K0-K7 they could share or sell to me? None of the links to manuals seem to have one, and I am not finding one on eBay.

Someone here with a lot more time working for the dealers may have one but personally, it may depend in part on the dealer they worked for. When I started out, the first dealer I worked for was just getting started and went on the cheap as much as possible - I realized it later when I worked for a couple of other dealers in town and found they had things the first place I worked did not. I've not personally ever seen a setup manual... I was taught the basics by the other, more long-term experienced employees at the dealership when I started, and I learned the rest on my own

I assume you mean a factory service manual, or fsm for short. If that's the case you'll find one somewhere. I got mine from a dealer who said Honda printed one special because they were no longer available. That was 20 years ago and I was young and dumb and now I'm older and dumb and still don't know if that's really something they do or not.

There is actually a separate set up manual that is different from the fsm; it's specifically for taking a bike out of the crate and putting it together for sale. I have one that Honda made for CB500s, and I am hoping Honda made one for the CB450s also.

Again, I'm sure they did but I've never seen one personally - someone here who worked in the dealerships longer than I will likely be along soon to weigh in

I also have the one for 500T, but have never seen one for the 450. Most stuff would be the same, shows how to route cables, etc.
Much too large to post here, I think (~50MB).

you could upload it to a free Dropbox account and then post a link - I'd like to see it myself, having never seen one during my working days and would enjoy seeing some of the stuff I always wondered about
