WOOO HOOO! 3 posts in a row. Anyone buy these? I wouldn't mind fixing my bike up. I don't know if it will fit the NX or look good. I have a NX gas tank.

One last thing. Perhaps this will help someone with suspension woes. I weigh 150lbs and I usually carry a 30-40lb kid with me.

The stock front springs work fine with a PVC preload in them. I...

The 84-85 xr250r shift lever will fit the splines, but it won't be in the correct position for most of us. I needed to bend it out on the bottom and back in at the top a little. took 5 min with a...

Thanks. Drilling, tapping, and changing the bore on the shaft is what I don't want to do. I ordered the MSR. So long as the bolt is on the bottom once mounted it will be fine. I have no clue what...

I need a new shifter lever for my 89 NX250. This bike came to me with a shift lever off some other unknown honda. The pinch bolt is on the top and it lasts about 2000 miles until the chain has...

So the better question is, did it look worn? Any place the needle can contact can and will wear. I don't remember what mine looked like exactly when I tore it out, but any ovaling of the main upper...

Sounds like an easy check on the PG. I can tell you I had the same issue on the BMW. All gears, but worse the higher up I went. It was an RPM issue. Ran great outside of a certain RPM. A bad ET...

Does it hesitate and then run, stumble but run, or die? If it simply runs poor I would be willing to bet it's your emulsion tube. I tore my carb apart and as I recall it is part of the main jet as...

noises and tanks

Is a small amount of valve noise normal? My NX is so quiet that I can hear more of the engine than I can on any other bike I have. There is no noise at all till I hit 3-3.5k RPM's and it makes a...

I understand the pain, but the reality is what it is. I have had scads of DR350's. The last one was the best DR350 most people had ever seen. It even had a Scotts Swingarm! Ran tight, strong,...

possible part out

Let's say someone had a good running 1989 NX250. No starting issues, good CDI (for now), all good electrical, 14k miles on motor, etc. It seems as though the bike is worth more in parts than as a...

I have logged a bunch of singletrack miles on a Mefo Explorer. All on the WR. It is my favorite 50/50 tire. The 606 and Mt21 are my favorite street knobbies. I have a buddy that swears by the...

Funny you chose black. I just got black fenders today to cut up and fit on the 435cc (Dr350). I went with an Acerbis Honda CRF rear fender in black and it has the led taillight built in. Looks...
