Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual. Most of the manuals are in English but some are not. There is no way to be sure without doing the download. You can always delete it if in a foreign language. There is also a parts manual I suggest that you download.

I checked and there are several manuals there. One shows to be a 2002 manual. That should be 95% the same as the 2000 manual. The major mechanics don't change as a rule, just the trim and a sensor or two.

Could I get a top rating on this answer? Thanks!

Why won't it start?

did you replace it with a new starter or a wrecker starter, maybe a bad starter. check the teeth on the flywheel they maybe damaged causing the starter not to engage. you may have to shim the starter. were there any shims when you pulled the original starter off.

How do you install camshafts on a 2014 Harley davidson vrscdx

To be honest with you , if your gonna attempt to change your cams , your gonna have to replace the shims and measure each one correctly and there not as easy as a normal twin cam. Its alot of work that needs to be done right the first time .Do not buy knock off manuel , but the actually harley manuel for your bike. the clymer manuels are garbage, yeah there cheap but thats what you get for cheap. Im not sure what your mechanical ability is but if its your first time on a vrod and have replaced overhead cams and shimming the valves and measuring the correct clearences and have the special tools for doing it. i would recommend someone that has actually done them to be with you. Just being honest with you .

Smoking starter

when mounting a chevy starter you must shim it down so it wont lock up when the bendix hits the flywheel..if it binds up it will burn up..there are different thicknesses of shims that fit between the block and the starter nose cone..use one or a combination of these to shim down enough that it wont drag..shim too far and it will spin out..I have owned chevys for years and have yet to see one that did not need shimmed down..these shims fit over the mounting bolts on the starter..

2003 yamaha 250yfm valves are noisey and started

Valves are adjusted by changing the the shims to thicker or thiner ones.
measure all the clearances and write them down, remove the cams and remove the cam buckets of the ones that need adjustment. Note the sizes of the shims removed( it is etched onto them) and replace with different thickness shims to bring them back into tollerence.

Make some marks and notes on the cam timing before removing cams,even take a photo(or that will be your next question) .
valve clearances usually close up( dont get noisy) and valve clearances wont make it smoke, so there may be more maintenance to do, like a cam chain and rings. Im not certain about a yfm, but you posted with a picture of a 2 stroke which doesnt have valves to adjust
