Anybody have a digital copy of a 2000 SP1 owners manual?
Here's the link:
http://www.rc51.info/index.php?page=service

The US/N. America version is a combined SP1/SP2 version with notes pointing out the differences for each procedure.

The UK/Euro version is an SP1 manual with a SP2 addendum with procedures for the different service areas.

The UK version is a better quality scan if you need to scrutinize photos as the US version is not that good of a scan.
I would download both to have on hand.

Just a reminder that those two manuals in electronic form do not detail the disassembly of SP2 forks, only SP1 forks.
Since the SP1 and SP2 use different preload adjusters, you could damage your SP2 fork cap and preload adjuster if you go strictly by the manual.
Try and locate a service manual for the 2004 CBR1000RR which uses the same fork cap and preload adjuster as the SP2.
Then once past the fork cap/reload adjuster removal, shift back over to the remaining fork disassembly steps.

BTW, if the 2002+ forks supposedly have a top out spring, isn't that also lacking from the manual too? The manual for the 2004 CBR doesn't show that either.
Can you effectively service the rest of the fork without that information?
Did Honda ever make the fork update available for the manual? I cannot find it.

The top-out spring is inside the cartridge, and the service manual does not show out to disassemble the cartridge.
To my knowledge, no service manual shows cartridge disassembly, since the cartridge is replaced as a unit if needed.

According to Honda, dealers get service updates and manual supplements for changes/additions to service manuals (such as SP2 fork disassembly), but these were not available to the public.
