I'm sure you missunderstood my reply. I was refering to "Al Baker's XR's Only". Its a shop that works on old and new Xr's and XL's. They have all the old manuals and specs and are happy to help. But there's just one thing... you will have to call them and ask for the information. Unfortunately this site doesnt have an online library of manuals and no one else has piped up with the info you have asked for.
Here's XR's only's # 760-244-2626 there on the west coast

I'm gonna guess that the exhaust is .003 and the intake is .002 this is my guess only

all that aftermarket stuff that you see at the end of our posts is our mods to our personal rides.
Last year I had sold my 84 xr500r and gave the manual to the new owner. Let us know when you get the specs.

Three weeks is a long time. This search took all of 30 seconds on Google and it took longer to type this out.

Don't know how accurate it is since I sold my last '82 in '86 and my Honda FSM went with it. I would've also called any Honda dealer since valve clearances aren't classified information...
