I spoke to the dealer today and apparently Honda is coming out with a manual for the '07 'blade around February 2011. Anyone had any experience with the Honda manuals? How do they compare to Haynes and Clymer? Are they for the everyday guy or are they really techy?

I believe they're a bit more techy ....

Wouldn't the '06/'07 manual just be an addendum to the '04/'04 manual?

The OEM manual has more technical info and no photos, just drawings.
The aftermarket ones usually have lots of photos which tends to help the less-experienced spanner monkey.

One thing the OEM manuals have that is sorely missed in the aftermarket ones is all the electrical, cable and hose routing diagrams.
