Hi,
Moderators feel free to re-title, modify, edit or move this PDF i have created.
It is a PDF copy of my own 1973 RD250 350 owners manual. it was my original hand book which i recently located complete in its original YAMAHA  plastic bag. I hope this is of some use to our fellow Rd owners. It is in English, French and German.
Regards
George (Herrschmitt)

Thank you.
I had an RD350 as soon as it was released in the Uk, i went to dealers earlier in the year to buy a YAMAHA  YR5F (350) as i had passed my test, the dealer said Mitsui ( the then YAMAHA importers ) had run out of stock of 350s and had only YDS 7s left(250),however he produced a copy of CYCLE magazine which was an American magazine which stated on the Front cover,"Introducing the new yamaha RD350"  i loved the look and told him to let me know when he had one in stock to let me know, i bought mine as soon as my dealer could get me one.The handbook got lost when i part exchanged bike three years later for a YAMAHA XS650B and re-surfaced several years later. I note that there was no letter after RD350 (A or B) On handbook  which confirms how early my bike was (OBF 95M if anyone knows where it is get in touch). I am glad you enjoyed reading the PDF i created and hope i put it in the right section ?
Regards
George

Thanks for the info, It will probably need to go in the manuals and handbooks section but one of the other mods will need to do it cos I don't know how to
