Original Owners Manual XV750

PostAuthor: ajknight66 » Mon Oct 25, 2010 8:39 pm

Hi All

Picked up the Original Owners Manual recently of E-Bay for the 1981 Virago. If anyone would like a copy ( scanned version) I will be scanning it in the next few days. It was printed in 1981. Also looks like its the UK Version but it is nice to have a copy :)

Cheers All and keep on Ridin'

Mod edit: you can find the manual posted in this post by the OP of this thread http://viragotechforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=24467#p329264

Won't do you any good Tim, The '81 is different from the '96.

I have a PDF Owners Manual for a 1997 XV750J. You won't find any difference in the J model and the H or H1 Model for '96 except for color schemes.

K model was 1 Gen, he wants for a '96 ( 2nd Gen ). I offer a '97 if he wants it and he never said yes, so I didn't attach it. I won't send email.

I would most appreciate a copy of any original owners manual. I have an 83 750. I think they are the same from 81-83. Much thanks from James Marion aka hmd0030@yahoo.com
