    Hi guys, I've just purchased this FX650, after a years torture on a chinese 125. I was wondering whether anyone has a front cowl that I could buy? As you can see in the picture a previous owner has swapped it out for a screen, which doesn't do much for me and is very tired and scuffed now...

    Hi there;couple of things (1) I'm changing the fork oil in my 99 FX650 Vigor. The tech data gives the quantity and level but no recommendation for the grade of oil. The bike is only used on the street, so any suggestions please? (2) Bit of a long shot this, but would anybody have an actual...

    Hi there, I have a 99' fx650 which I purchased to refurb and modify. I do not know how it ran before it was dismantled. It was only started. I have now rebuilt after refurb and I'm having trouble with engine hesitation with throttle open. I have put a larger main jet (175) as it has a custom...

    I would like to customise my FX650 and wonder if anyone has fitted alloy 3 spoke wheels [like those on a Suzuki GS500] to their Honda. If this is a doable how complex is it or is there an easy way of fitting wheels from another bike which need little modification. Any photos would be helpful.

    I am looking for a set of crash bars for my 2001 FX650 Vigor. Is the frame different to a SLR frame. Does the Dominator have the same frame. There seems to a number of different model numbers starting with RD 0?. Does anyone know what the model number is for the Vigor. Just acquired the Vigor...

    Lo ! I want to save some coin, and instead of acquiring specific FX650 centre stand for my needs I am considering buying FMX650 centre stand for 1/3 cheaper instead. Anyone having any experience or comment on this ?

    Picking up my new ride at the weekend, a red FX650. I've had many of these but never seen red one before. That's five Vigors now, two blue, two yellow and red one. Should see me out.....

    My local bike shop has a contact who has access to Honda NOS parts. He's now stocking throttle cables and speedo drive gears for SLR and FX650 - both discontinued by Honda. Get 'em while they're hot! Manhattan Motorcycles Ltd. Recently Added Products

    Is there any reason a CDI from and SLR wouldn't run in an FX650? You'd need to chop the FX CDI plug from the loom and wire in the SLR CDI plug. Then the ignition rotor would need to be changed (the FX on has more pips on it). I'm sure the TPS is the same on both bikes. The only casualty I think...

    The wiring loom on my 1999 FX650 is in a bad way near the CDI connector. I have repaired it but ideally looking for replacement CDI connector or a very good loom. What have you or suggestions on where to get a new CDI connector. There are looms available from the usual places (i.e. ebay) but...

    Hi. I bought a 2002 Honda fx650 vigor. The piston was knackered. So I got a new barrel and piston (2nd hand) and removed all the old piston from the engine. It has 75-80psi on compression.

    Hello ! Much to my disappointment I cannot find a good way and am a bit out of ideas, how to fit some rubber or something for shielding the rear shock from all the crap rear wheel tosses at it. One of exaust pipes seems to be a bit in the way (or to burn away any rubber nearby). Any good ideas...
