Absolute truth ! It was only made for one year so it is a rare bird.
Did you find a manual?

Yes, I have a manual.

Thatīs a bit sad if it is that hard to find spareparts!

But on the other side itīs a Honda and Hondas donīt need spareparts that often! Or what?

That is the best part, they are very reliable with care.

If your 800 is still the same as my 1983 750 and the 700s, it has hydraulic lifters so no valve adjust.
Look on ebay I bet lot of the 86-87 vt700 parts will fit your 800.
