I know it is really new still, but has anyone seen full blown shop manuals for the Pioneers available anywhere yet?

You can order a factory service manual (book) from your dealer. They should be popping up on ebay and other places also in paperback and PDF. I prefer the paperback manuals and the Honda factory ones are top notch.

Do you happen to have a ballpark on the costs of those?

Thanks

Yep, eventually a pdf will come along... the free kind and buying. I prefer using the "book" yet and if you plan on keeping your machine a long time it's worth the investment. Heck, just doing one repair like changing an axle boot pays for itself vs paying the dealer (labor time).

With a lot of things it's like this, cars, bikes, just about anything. Always good to be a bit of a DIY'er, save yourself some money and get to know more about what you're passionate about.

well cars are getting so complicated that shop manual or not you are not fixing your own car. My brother is a mechanic and he says all the time to me, "i cant fix my own car without all the computers we have at the shop". At least SxS are still a simple design...

$50 bucks for the manual is a well spent drop in the bucket compared to having to haul it to a mechanic, if you can instead use the info to fix it yourself.

Does anyone have a wiring diagram for a pioneer online? I am looking for places under the hood to tie into for my rocker switch panel. I don't really want to run another wire to the battery and need it for my radio and a couple extra LED lights.

Get yourself a volt/ohm meter and a sharp probe (ice pick will do). Find the harness coming out of the dash to the instrument panel and probe to find your key on 12 volt line. Word of caution, connect your feed with solder don,t use those quick connects. They cause a lot of headaches down the road.

Thanks,

That is what I did but used a splice T for now and don't like the way it looks. I should know better but may have been under the influence when I put the winch in last Friday night. I plan on redoing it this weekend and repairing the ignition wire. I was anxious to get it working but now have the radio mounted and the switch panel to install so I will do it more professionally! Gotta LOVE the human ethanol! :D

I purchased the Pioneer Service Manual and Honda Common Service Manual 35 bucks each and shipping came to 82 bucks, Manuals received are brand new and exact to what dealers have on file. Here is the link to where I ordered from.
