Hi folks, I know this is an old thread, but would appreciate a copy of the Honda rebel 85 original service manual. Hard to find these days and just got my first bike. The Haynes one I bought is good but not excellent. Hoping for something with more details and photos to fill in the gaps. Thanks.

Also, FYI to anyone else who gets here, archive.org has a manual library and they have a copy of the rebel 1996 and older oem manual for free. Best.
The electrical diagram in that archive.org 96 repair manual is Wrong one.. Diagram included in that manual is for 85-87 first generation Rebel..

Are you looking for a paper manual or one you can download? Clymer paper manuals are readily available, and I only recommend them for the first generation Rebels, 1985-87. IMO, the Honda brand manuals are the best, and Haynes second.

I have an 85. That picture looks like how mine is wired. Or are you asking about something different?

They used to have many paper manuals. I posted that they had them about 4 months ago. Now all that they have left are PDFs.
I think we on the forum cleaned them out of hardcopies.

I could use a digital copy of the service manual covering 1985 Rebel 250s, if anyone as one and wouldn't mind. I went to abebooks.com and only see the hardcopy (which I might also get) but I would also like a digital copy. Thanks!

Interesting, I looked at the site an hour ago & didn't see a single paper manual now that's all they have.... Strange.
I much prefer paper to digital, I'm old school!

I don't have a PDF, only a hard copy. Sorry. Keep searching online, I've seen them many times when I was looking for my paper copy.
