46T Sprocket Source?

Howdy NX/ers..

I've been searching unsuccessfully for a 46T rear sprocket. Does anyone know of a reasonably priced source? I'm looking to go +1 in the rear (keep 15T front, 46T rear).

Thanks!

It saddens me...I must admit. We put a lot of work into this bike and it was a HUGE Father/Son project over about 4 months....

But the NX is for sale......

Sorry to see it go! Your posts about your NX have been very helpful in my own ongoing NX project.

That is a very good price, I'm sure it will sell fast!

Hagon Shock

Hello all, Has anyone put a Hagon rear mono shock on a NX 650? If so, how do you like it? How about a Wilber? Are there any other aftermarket shocks for the Domi. I am getting ready to purchase one as was wondering who was the best. Thanks guys........Spring is almost here!!!

I installed a Hagon rear shock and fitted a reworked XR600R front end onto my 89 NX650. turned the bike from average to exceptional in the suspension dept, for a dualsport bike. I ended up with about an inch more ground clearance, and the ability to dial up the preload when loaded down with luggage. I dont know if it was the best, but it sure made a hugh differance in the way the bike handled, expecially in the rougher stuff. Dont expect it to be transformed into a MX type handler, as the bike is not designed to do those type of stunts. Hope this helps.

I've got XRL forks (and trees) on my NX as well. If you're also using the XRL trees, you will have a 5" width to fit in a tire that's mounted on a 21" rim, and a 5.25" width to fit a tire on a 17" rim.

The French eBay site has enormous amounts of NX650 parts.

The Hagon. But if you can't afford that, I'd suggest an XR250R shock with heavier oil and a stiffened NX spring.

I have a Hagon rear shock, but have not had time to put it on yet. I will report when I do install it.

Suspension Info

Thanks Guy's, Looks like I am going with the Hagon in the rear. I have already swaped out the front with a 88 XR 250R forks, brake, and rim. It all bolted right up with no problems. I had the parts already, thats why I did not use the XL 650 set-up. Finished up the carb mods ( Daves ). Waiting for a rear 89 rack that I got from a nice guy in the UK. With the way that gas prices are going ( $3.50 unleaded ) I am sure she will get a lot of use this year.

The deal with Wolfy didn't work out, so I just listed my '89 in the FM...
