In the box of parts that came with the '89 NX650 that I just bought, I found the metal plate/sticker that shows the VIN, tire pressure info, model year, etc. Where does this thing belong on the bike? I want to glue it back on, but I can't find it on parts diagrams.
Well it's been some time in the making but my first custom bike build is now complete.:D Got to the point where I just wanted it on the road, so still a bit 'ratty' and might strip it all down again one day. But just passed it's MOT and already chucking about some green lanes. To be used and...
I'm new to the XL, I have what I thought is a 1989 XL250R, when I've searched the internet the R model seems to have stopped production in 1987 and was replaced with the NX250, can anyone confirm this.
The last 3 holidays I’ve been on I wished I could have had my trusty nx650 with me as there is no restrictions to riding off road. I’m currently in Sal, Cape Verde and hired a quad bike and had loads of fun but it’s not the same as Pepe. I wish the UK was so accessible to use on a motorcycle, we...
I'm trying to restore my '88 dommie in factory condition, and so I need a new seat cover (the red one with the simple "honda" on the sides).
Do you know some websites or shops wher I can find it (as close as possible to the orginal ?)
My nx650 RD02 (1989) is in need of a new shock. The current shock is an old Hagon that is at least 20 years old fitted by the previous owner and I doubt very much it is serviceable by the look of it.
Im on a tight budget (meaning I don’t want to spend a fortune) but need to replace it...
I've tried searching but haven't managed to find a definitive answer. Is there a direct replacement carb that would fit a 1999 nx650?
I was going to strip and rebuild mine as it's got the usual tickover issue but if there is a better replacement that could be used I may well just go...
Does anyone out there have any experience of fitting a Keihin FCR41 Flat Slide Carb to a Dominator? I was told by a carb specialist that this would be an improvement and a little more power.
If so, how hard is it and what would I have to do .?
Thanks in advance
I've just obtained an XR650L oil pump (15100-MY6-670)
I understood this to be a worthwhile upgrade from the standard NX5650 oil pump
But it doesn't seem to fit.
It does fit following some minor mods outlined later on in this thread.
Not started it for a few weeks, had become more and more difficult to start cold, and now - won't start at all
Had lost interest in it lately, now even more so
So, after trying to start for a while, (turns over fine), checked spark - nothing
I have in the last year or so replaced...
My XRV650 RD03 needs its wheels replaced. It seems it was stored outside on grass for about 17 years.
I have managed to get a Transalp 21" front in good condition and a ST1000 Pan European front left hand brake disk.
Would a Dominator rear wheel fit?
Good Dominator rear wheels are cheaper and...
Selling as i dont use it and have another tour x, its in excellent condition with only a slight mark on the back where it was resting on the wall on the shelf. There is a stuck on GO Pro mount which can easily be removed.
The Senna intercom does NOT come with it and will be taken...
does anyone know if there is a big difference between a NX650 frame and a XL600 Frame?
I'm considering to put all XL600parts (fuel tank, seat, lichts, fenders etc on a Dominator frame (+engine)...
Maybe also an option would be to put a dominator engine in the XL600?
I have no idea how...
