    Yes, thanks much for your time posting this. This helps so much with checking out the 1982 CX500 that I recently purchased. I also had problems with chapters 5 & 6 as well as 12 and 14.

    Looking for service manuals for an ‘86 CR 250 and an ‘84 XL 200R. Any ideas? I got the 200R with the motor in boxes and the CR is missing the jug, so I have a lot of work ahead of me as I restore these two bikes. I have been watching ebay for parts; any other ideas?

    Chapter 6 is corrupt somehow (also only few 100kB big). Could you reupload it or mail it to me please? It’s quite an important chapter.

    Thanks!

    I had trouble with a few PDFs as well though a retry worked. Evan, do you plan on adding ch20 – ch25? I have a 1980 Deluxe and the addendum would be nice to have.
    Thanks for the manual!! It will be a life saver.
