    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

    ***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 :)

    If anyone wants that manual sign up for a DropBox account here and message me.
    http://db.tt/cR9TBSI
    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.

    Just got your message and I sent the invite to download the manual. It has all the schematics in there for the wiring and just about everything else the dealer would have repaired. Good luck!

    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

    Hey Chris,

    I just installed Dropbox and was wondering how to get the Honda 81 XL250s Manual. Let me know if I need to share a folder through Dropbox. I recently bought the xl250s and need to change the oil, tire, and air filter so the manual will be a huge help. Thanks Man. Oh ya my email address used on Dropbox is mcernan_music@yahoo.com

    Cheers

    It's easier to PM me for the manual since I don't get onto the forums as much as I'd like.

    Hello Chris,
    Can I get your XL250 Manual?

    Please add your email address to the blog.
    There is no way to contact you thru dropbox without your email.
    Thanks,
    Tom
