Honda XL250S 78-81 XL250R 82-83 Manual

Hey all,
I have a PDF that I want to share with everyone. It's long out of print and you can't buy it anywhere except eBay used so I don't think I'm hurting anyone out there.

Here's the catch, it's 321MB. It's high res and every chapter is linkable to the referred page. I did this all my self last winter when it was too cold to work on the bike. PM me with your email address and I can link you to my DropBox folder so you can download it. (you may have to sign up for drop box which is free)

Hope I'm helping fellow XL owners out there becuase I had to do a lot of research for my restore and just wanna share the wealth!

Chris

PS - Leave some possitive feedback in the thread if you like it...

***EDIT*** PLEASE READ***
Hey everyone. On average I get around 2-3 requests for this manual every week. Please send me a DM if you want a copy since I very rarely ever get a chance to log onto ADV. When you DM me I get an email and I almost always reply within a couple hours if not less since I keep my phone on me at all times. I don't want anyone going without this manual if they need it!!

***EDIT*** PLEASE READ*** 22 NOV 2013
Thanks to whit32 there is now a direct download link that is better than Dropbox. Please find the file at
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzS...it?usp=sharing
If the link stops working feel free to PM me and I will send another link as soon as I can. Currently in Afghanistan for at least anther year and it's very difficult to reply as quickly as I should.

Have fun riding and good luck with your repairs :)

Chris

If anyone wants that manual sign up for a DropBox account here and message me.

The PDF is 321MB so I need to use DropBox since I can't email it. Once you sign up I can share the file.

Also, I have a lot of spare parts I'm willing to sell, DM me if interested.

Hey Chris,

I'd really appreciate a copy of the manual. I've had my 83 XL250R since 1986. It hasn't been used much since about 2000 when the kids were small. The muffler was made for me by a young mechanic in the 90's when the stock one rusted out; it's a bit louder than stock but works well. I've also had to replace the speedo with one from a different motorcycle. Otherwise it looks pretty good for its age but needs a carb job and a general going over.

Cheers,
Dan

Picked up a 79 xl 250 on the cheap. Not sparking according to PO who had it about 8 years and never got around to it. Looking forward to getting the manual and getting started! Thanks Chris. I have some manuals on my computer as well and will put them out there if I can figure it out. dhshearouse@gmail.com
