    XL Technical Specs
    Hi 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. Thanks

  3. Wanted: RD08 Dommie Rear Rim

    For Sale / Wanted
    Does anyone have a spare rear rim (17x2.50) that they are selling? I have stripped my wheels down ready for powder coat and found that there is an area around the tyre valve, where the outer surface is starting to de-laminate. Colour is not an issue as i'm having the Hubs and Rims powder coated

  6. Is the NX250 a sort of mini Dominator? Or a mini TransAlp?

    Dominator / FMX
    I've found a nice NX250, 1988 near me. Tempting even with the tiny wheels (16 inch). Is there a forum where convos about it might be found? It's also sold worldwide as the AX-1 and listed occasionally in the US as a Dominator... and I'm in the US. Thanks for any leads... t

  8. testing an ignition coil, xl185s?

    XL
    I am currently restoring a 1980 xl185 and have managed to get a voltage at the input to the coil. I have connected my multimeter to the spade connector from the CDI and the needle bounces about to a maximum of 5v when the bike is kicked over. I guess this is what I should be seeing? I have no...

  12. About Excel rims

    Africa Twin
    I am thinking changing my old XRV 650 rims for new Excel ones. The original front rims are 21x1.85 while the Excel rims seem to only be available in 21x1.65 or 21x2.25 (KTM fitment?) Am I missing something? Lee
