Go to this site and you can download a free Factory PDF service manual. Most all 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.

Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download.

Camshaft timing

check you have correct TDC for the indicator marks, place a rod down the plug hole and slowly rotate to confirm top dead centre for one and two, and follow the clymer instructions again.
and always turn it over by hand(as you have done) 2 complete revolutions and recheck marks , before attempting to start.

Problems with timing the camshafts for a VF 750 Interceptor . It is the two front cylinders problem. The engine works, but not good. When running it is blowing out back of the two carburators.. i have a...

The cam timing is pretty straight forward: with the #1 cylinder at top dead center, the timing marks on the cam sprockets should be level with the valve cover gasket surface.
I can't imagine the engine would run at all if the cam timing were off, my suspicion is that the intake valves on the two forward cylinders are bent (explaining the blow-back through the carburetors). This can occur if the crankshaft is rotated without first having the cam timing set correctly.

I would like to know the recommended fuel octane for my 1982 Honda VF750 S Sabre. I don't have the owner's manual and this information is not in the Clymer Service Manual. I am bringing the old bike back...

You are correct; the (minimum) recommended fuel octane rating for your bike is 91. In fact, this applies to nearly every Honda motorcycle that I can think of. Back in the 60's and 70's, Honda used to recommend an octane rating of 95 - or higher.

How do you adjust the valves for an 1983 honda shadow 550

If you don't have a service manual, really consider getting one for your aging bike. Look up Clymer manuals or buy one from Honda. Meantime, check the 646 help section in reference at the library.
