Yamaha XS650 References and Info


These manuals are in Adobe Acrobat format (pdf).  I realize this is not the most efficient format for graphics, but I think it is the best choice for this particular use due to it's cross platform capabilities and great features.  You must have Adobe Acrobat to read these files.  The software is free and there is a link at the bottom of this page.  These manuals reference the Yamaha 650 SOHC twin produced from around 1970 until 1983.
