The photo shown may differ from the cover that you receive.

This 1982 – 1983 Honda FT500 ASCOT Service Manual covers emission systems on the Honda FT500 motorcycle. Follow the Maintenance Schedule recommendations to ensure that the Honda FT500 motorcycle is always in peak operating condition and the emission levels are within the standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USA only). Performing the first scheduled maintenance is very important. It compensates for the initial wear that occurs during the break- in period. Sections 1 through 3 apply to the whole motorcycle, while sections 4 through 21 describe parts of the Honda FT500 motorcycle, grouped according to location. Find the section you want on this page, then turn to the table of contents on page 1 of that section. Most sections start with an assembly or system illustration and all the required specifications, torque values, tools, and troubleshooting for the section. The subsequent pages give detailed procedures for the section. If you are not familiar with this motorcycle, read the Technical Features in section 22. If you don’t know the source of the trouble, go to section 23, Troubleshooting. Refer to section 24 for 1983 service information.
