Just curious if this is still in the works. It would be great if it was, I'm in!

Oh that last post didn't copy, sorry. There was some talk a month or so about some custom guards and possible panniers. I need to get off my nook and post properly!

Pissed Well, nothing to say, but 'dammit'

After 25 years, 58000 miles..
The '89 took a real lick yesterday...

Was going to shop in a store, and entered the parking lot and found a parking space i fancied....

while gazing at this spot, i saw a KingCAB F150 4x4 coming AT ME...
10-15mph

I stopped for a good ten seconds, so the driver would have time to correct and give me room...
9
8
7
6... I see the female driver isn't looking over the hood, she isnt even looking out the windshield.....
5..she's going to cut it CLOSE

4...she turns into me, even closer....It's inevitable...She IS going to squash me, and the NX

3... I start to drop the bike, and eject !Eject! EJECT!!

2...She looks out the windshield, Finally sees me...

1... stabs the brakes....I lean the bike, and turn the front wheel...


(pause for dramatic effect!)


0...

BAM!!!



She hits the fork tube, brake rotor, front fender as she rolls to a stop...snapping the bars nearly from my hands..


I'm standing there, bike leaned,
with a front truck tire pinning my front bike tire underneath..

She backs up two feet, mouths 'Im Sorry' through the glass at me, AND TAKES OFF!!

I got the TAG, but is turns out the TAG is expired, to a different vehicle...



The NX is knackers..

the front forks are twisted, the brake rotor is warped, brakes are dragging..
there is a BAD vibration in the front end(through the bars),
and the wheel is bouncing..and juddering...




Hit and Run, Fictitious Tag, Leaving the scene..Totalling out my NX..




Does anyone have a complete good front end that i can get for the cheap?


This is my ONLY transportation, and of course, i have to pay for someone else's inattention/recklessness..





so again,
Does anyone have a complete good front end that i can get for the cheap?

forks, triple clamps, rotor, wheel..
the whole shebang?


Sorry, i'm not a happy camper now...
I've been riding in 20f-30f degrees for 7 months, the first day of spring, and a hitandrun lady destroys the NX..

anyone got a front end, PLEASE PM me...

I'm sure the CD works. By manually rotating the alternator, checked the Pulse Generator. I think there is the problem of generating pulse.
I have video recording, what are your opinions?
How else do I check the pulse generator?
The pulse generator is inside the clutch side cover...

It has a 'cold temp'(engine cold) spec, and a 'warm' spec...

It is measured in ohms...290Ω-360Ω at 68F°(20C°)

So, go with a median value 225 as a starting point for your measurement...


Remember, the PG(pulse generator) is inside the clutch cover..

Bluhduh

I'm not sure a front end is gonna fix it...

I just went for a test ride, 5-6 miles..
it's kinda ...'off'...
the triples are left at the top, the wheel is to the right at the axle..

bent rotor...
headlight assembly (frame) must be bent...
brakes dragging..
wheel bouncing, and it's pulling a little..

I think maybe the steering neck is bent, and after so many km's,
only the engine is worth saving..
and the rear wheel..


of course, i did just put chain/sprocket, rear wheel bearings, front bearings, front and rear tubes and front rear tires...
KN filter, fork boots, levers...


i sat by the phone ALL day
waiting on the PD to call me with 'we found her'..
never got a call..

I tried to 'harden da 'eff' up, and stomach a test ride,
and now..

There is tire rubber stuck to my front brake rotor...i got a pic..
I can rebuild anything on a bike but i can't fix 'bent' frame..

i feel like


Scrambler, did you jinx me? (just kiddin)

X-lite Cheater NX250 CBR250 cylinder & cams

Is there a black list or something for bad vendors? This guy here is offering cylinders and cams for our NX250 / AX1


http://www.xlitemoto.com/products_de...490373835.html


But these parts will never fit an MD21 engine; the cylinder is missing the structure for attaching the oil line






The sprockets of the X-lite cams have a larger diameter – also no way to make them work











A buddy ordered CBR250 cams (which are the same as the CRF250L cams) and experienced the same.


Comparison with pics from the web suggests that all these parts are intended for shineray engines, not for Honda engines.


When I confronted the vendor with this, he first wrote that he has to ask the factory, and then was never heard of again.



So the only thing left to do is to warn everybody to never buy anything from this guy – I suppose I was not the first that was cheated but hopefully the last

dang, this sucks – but luckily you are ok, and that’s the only thing that counts. In situations like this I would wait a few days (or weeks) to let things calm down – and then think it over. It’s not necessarily a bend frame, after a similar crash (with the NX650 though) the frame was ok, the energy of the crash was apparently absorbed by the front wheel and fork.


Even if the frame was bend, as long as the engine is ok, it would be still your NX - and you would be still in the 100.000 miles race .
Only in case – used frames are not that expensive


http://www.ebay.com/itm/1988-HONDA-N...6edacc&vxp=mtr


but for starters I would change the triple clams, since they are the weakest point of the front end


http://www.ebay.com/itm/90-HONDA-NX2...c0733b&vxp=mtr


Hopefully that’s already enough to fix it – I’ll keep my fingers crossed!
Take care,
Michael

New poster , start button issue.

Bought a reasonable condition 89. with the exception of a weak battery, worked fine. (replaced battery)
washed it, now the start button does not work. Short the soleniod, and the starter turns (so it's not the starter)
No voltage seen at the magnetic switch when disconnected and and the starter switch pushed Ignition on (so no signal to the solenoid).
Then I opened up the handlebar switchgear and shorted the brass buttons, but still no voltage at the switch.

Will the starter turn if the Run switch is off? Most hondas do. If it's not the switchgear, I guess I'm chasing a short somewhere?

Thanks.

Damn, valvecrusher, that sucks big time! Hope you find a solution soon.

Anybody happen to know the diameter of the fork springs? I'm thinking of trying a pair from my airhead since the outer diameters of the stanions are the same and the lengths seem to match as well.

O, and I found a dipstick in the partsbin, didn't know I had one lying around.

Nevermind

It was a the switch pod. Had to use one I had around, which had different connectors, so had to cut and connect in the original 8 pin connector.

Pain in the ass.

This guy has the connectors if you need them. All I used were cheapo construction type strippers to connect them as well. Vintageconnections.com
