Billyboy here down in devon (uk). Picked up a 2001 dommie NX650X 6 weeks ago and whilst checking through the bike a number of questions are beginning to surface that
i'm hoping someone can advise me on. This'll probably be the start of many and if you see the same questions appearing elsewhere on similar sites then forgive me for casting my net a bit wider!
Anyhow.. I have acquired an original shop manual (although for the 88/89 models ) and also have the addendum printed in 1997 which I presumed would give me some info re data that may be different for my model RD08 . There's not a lot in the addendum to be honest but I did notice that it says the valve clearance on the exhaust is 0.1mm rather than the previous 0.12 .
Is this correct as I also have an XR650L manual which I believe uses the same engine and in there once again the clearance is given to be 0.12 .
If someone could clarify this I'd appreciate it .
To be honest I do wonder whether these manuals are generally spot on because i also noticed that in the 88/89 manual it states that the cylinder compression when new is 178 psi but in both the 97 addendum and the 650L data it says 92psi .....surely one of these must be a misprint and i'm presuming it's the 178?
thanks in advance for your views/advice/help
