What model is your bike? You have no signature line, and I don`t remember what you have.

Is it a Kaw shop manual from the first year JUST for the 1985 Canadian model?
I have a Canadian bike, and about the only differences for the 1991 (A7) are the emission control canister, hoses and factory coasters.

The early models do have some differences outlined here:

The info for working on all the major systems except those identified above are the same.
Ask about any specifics if you aren`t sure.

IMO, the main differences you will find are the emissions controls and coasters mentioned in my first post, less the smaller cylinder/piston diameter specs for the 700 cc engine. The rest of the engine parts are interchageable, including the heads.

Not really a big deal because the 700 piston rings are no longer available for a rebuild anyway.
However, you can swap 750 cylinders and pistons as a set onto a 700 engine case.

The Canadian manual will cover 99% of everything you are likely to need to do.
We should be able to fill in any missing info.
