Honda XL250 Degree

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

in 1995-2000 Honda released a line of XL250 known as Honda XL250 Degree using the general release model code as MD21.

Road legal, these vehicles shared similar attributes to the earlier XL250 however used the newer MD21E engine (as found in the Honda NX250 and AX-1).

Very little current detail seems to be available about this model, but Honda confirmed (at least in Australia) that the VIN will contain the following JH2MD21UXSKxxxxxx (S denoting Australia).

The repair/shop manual for this vehicle is no longer in print and Honda advise its part no. #6132906 stating its special order as it needs to be reprinted (however research shows that this does not actually cover this model and no manual has been found to date). Clymer service manuals state they have a version known as (M328-4) that covers this model - but does not, referring only to the XL/XR250 (non-MD21E engine).
