M-Quick,
Agree totally with M-Quick. Please pay strict attention on the orientation of that oil filter (Printed on a Honda OEM filter and inserted paper instruction). One long bolt in the filter housing the rest shorter. Do not over tighten that long one, it will snap.
Sorry M-Quick I know you've seen that before but it is better to be safe then sorry.

So today i took the seat off the check the air filter and the owners manual was still in plastic in the rubber strap. NICE ,,, i took the 700 out for a 2 hour ride in the woods soo much. Fun. Think. Will look into adjustable suspension. I only weigh 140lbs. No complaints here. But it was a soft ride

Why couldn't you download it from the link here? I hope you didn't pay $40 for a digital copy. The hard copy might be worth it, in the long run,

You mean you didn't remove seat to look at this before you purchased? Air box can tell a lot about how well the machine was maintained.

No didnt shame on me i was so excited it was the only one for sale within 400 miles. But i got very lucky. The filter was spotless and the cover was wrapped in panty hose and they were clean i even got both keys. With it. . I did finally download the manual thanks guys. I am going to start looking for another one here in the next few months . We had a couple warm days and took her out on the trails. I cant get enough . Of course i washed it and tucked it away in the garage till the weather acts right i will post pics
