XV500 manual?

PostAuthor: venZon » Mon Oct 30, 2017 4:16 am

Wanted to make sure before I order does this manual apply to a 1983 XV500?

The cover doesn't list XV500 but the year seems to fall in place.

I've done a search on here and google with no clear answer. Even emailed the seller and they can't say for sure.

Thanks in advance.

No, the Clymers does not cover the XV500.

You can download the Yamaha Factory XV500 Service Manual ----> download/file.php?id=31287

You may need 4 more posts to your credit ( total of 5 posts ) before you can download and then you will have to log in on the download page.

I deleted your duplicate post. You only need to post one topic per issue/problem. Multiple threads on the same topic will not get you faster or better answers, most likely just duplicate answers. If different solutions should be offered, it's better to have them on one thread.

If you don't get an answer in a reasonable time, reply to your own thread with "bump".

Hi there hope this is not too late, I bought a tech cd covering the xv500 1983 on. Ebay from cyclehippie 4969 $14 or there about's all the relevant info have found it v useful he had a limited supply but i guess contacting him through the bay can do no harm.
Good luck !

Makes little sense to buy a digital copy on a cd when I gave the link for a digital copy that costs nothing.

Besides the OP wanted a paper copy.

Yamaha Induction Control System, it basically a vacuum balancing system in the intake manifold.
