Did you check Honda's website ? or ask them where could you find.

You should contact with HONDA Service depatment or service call center.

I think that they will provide the service manual for you.
Or if only little problem. you can go to the motorbike shop directly.

I hope you will find the solution soon,

Miss Mio

Okay new member, here is my first question. I have a honda CB750SC, when I got the bike last year the plugs were all fouled, the carbon was so bad it was caked on the plug. Changed the plugs, reset the gas/air mixture to factory setting. Now I am still changing the plugs every two months as they are fouling and it runs terrible. Any ideas as to how to fix the problem?

Fouled plugs can occur for reasons other than an incorrect carb settings. Worn rings will allow it to burn oil. Ignition problems, weak spark, loose plug caps. Even too much oil in the crankcase. Do you have more details?

If you own such a motorcycle, knowing how expensive parts are, I don't understand you can hesitate spending 20$ for a service manual such as:
Clymer's Honda XL500, XR500, XL600, XR600 Repair Manual 1979-1990

What year is the XR? Look on the carb for an identification number. With this I can attempt to get you the specs you need.
