Maybe to word "acid" is now considered to be politically incorrect and offensive and dangerous to the youth of America.  ::)

I have a bunch more of these generic SB's. I'll post some of the others that might be interesting in the future.

Please do! I love to get copies of this older stuff that we'll never see unless guys like you do what you're doing. Thank you!

Ok, here's a few more.
One Service Reminder regarding the proper installation of the front axle, an SB indicating the switch from oil to ATF in the forks, and SB about bleeding the brakes.

Crap! I wish I'd seen the brake bleeding one sooner. I put in a new master cylinder piston in my 350F over this winter as I was going through the whole bike, and after the rebuild and bleeding, about a week later, I found a bit of fluid on the handle and a small drip on the floor. So, I thought "hmmm, must be just the piston wasn't enough" and ordered the whole master cylinder rebuild kit and took the whole thing apart again and replaced everything this time.

Probably didn't need to do that. Sounds like this is probably all that was happening. I could just shot the thing clean with brakekleen and been good to go. Oh well, I've spent $35 on worse than a master cylinder rebuild kit!

Yea, the brake lever overtravel was new for me as well.  Explains why almost ever master cylinder I've opened up has been a mess under the rubber boot.  This is really good stuff.  Keep it up!!!!

As I threatened, here's a few more docs from the "Honda Update '75".  Sorry, not as much useful info here.

And of course, the Wisdom of Honda.  ::)

I'll try to find something more useful in the future. 
I've got a lot of XL/MT250/TL125, GL1000, and some stuff on the twins but it's not really relevant here.

A couple of more. Honda uses the 1973 Oil Crisis (remember that?!) to help save oil...  Meaning the Oil Crisis was really helping move bikes!

Service Bulletin SL82 General Dealer Set-Up Checklist.

And "Hondacare".  I can't imagine too many people left those stickers there for long.

Btw, if anyone wants to play along at home and make their own set these should all print out full-page.

I can't figure out why reversing the front axle will shift the front wheel to the left. 

The axle is not butted in any way, and the wheel is located buy the lower sliders and spacers.  What am I missing?

The shape of the nut is the locator. Go out and try it on yours, you'll see. Many people here have done this then wondered what's wrong. I remember a thread where a forum member got their bike back from a dealer with the axle reversed. Dealer made up somehairbrained excuse about the wheel being bent.

Thanks Ron.  I checked my CB350F, under reassembly, and the axle nut is on the brake caliper side, so the axle has been inserted from the speedo drive side.

You got it. Its a 50/50 chance, and better if you just removed it recently as the proper image is in your head. But it can be done wrong.

Here's the Official Honda Service Bulletin covering axle holders (axle clamps). This clears up the confusion regarding orientation of the gap (to the rear). Applies to all models.
