Exactly. We have 2 of the 1985 250's and they are both that way. Just cause something is labeled SL and then 1-4 doesn't mean it isn't a 5 speed... SL forward + 4 forward gears.... 5 forward gears totalOn the 85's 250A's they were marked SL,1,2,3,4.
Still a 5 speed and the "SL" gear was the same tooth count as first gear was on the later 250A's. They just called it "SL"
