Service manual and Rear spring/shock tool needed

Hey Guys,
Any leads for a deal on a service manual and also a tool to adjust rear suspension. I have a 2014 CTX1300A. My selling dealer is offering a 15% discount for accessories, but cannot even find a listing for either item. Pretty lame, huh?
Part numbers would help too.

I use a simple strap wrench to adjust the rear shocks.

Spanner for the rear shock (if you really want the official tool) is part 89202-MJN-A00. $10.97 at www.CheapCycleParts.com. Don't know about shipping on that though, I think I ended up getting that at the dealer due to what shipping tacked on. The service manual may not be available through Honda. I bought mine from Helminc.com when the price was almost half what it is now. There are other sources online that are copies of this official manual for less also. If your parts guy can find it the part number for the manual is 61MJN00 (per the Helm Inc web site).

That said, a strap wrench will also work and a few here have turned the shocks by hand (with saddlebags removed).

I bought the spanner wrench from my dealer and it cost about $10, and I didn't need to pay shipping.

I swapped my original rear shocks out a while ago with a completely different set, so I have the spanner that came stock with the aussie models lying around but I dont think it is worth the cost of shipping it to you. When I needed to change the settings on the original shocks, I could do it by hand.

cheers

I ordered my service manual from the link below for $51.00 shipped. It arrived today and looks like it came from the factory. I tried to order one from the dealer, but they wanted $145.00.
