I reckon the left side of my bike is ideal for expanding the fuel capacity, I have a Supertrapp which makes the whole left side under the seat and sidecover empty. If you fitted a single muffler of whatever type you would have a heap of room on the left side. You could try and fit a Safari rear tank

Thanks for that Bounder, I am planing to fit a xr single header and a single muffler, but I plan to use the space left over from the other muffler for tools/spares. The other thought is to build a bash plate that can take tools in it and use the spare muffler area for some water. Undecided on this bit as yet.

The NX was based of the XL600, so that tank would have the best chance of fitting properly.

When I had both an NX and an XR650L in the shop I tried to swap the tanks and they did not match well. I can't remember the exact differences between the two, but I remember that welding would be required. Someone posted a pic a while back of an NX with an oversized DR650 tank mounted on it. The conversion for mounting that tank was supposedly easier than the conversion for an XRL tank.

If anyone finds a link to that bike (with the DR650 tank), please post it.

Thanks for that pablo83, looks like I am back to contemplating the DR tank. I'll borrow my mates one and have a look.

Hello from Tasmania

Hello to all domi owners out there.

Heres a pic of my domi which I bought a few years ago for my son to ride to get his motorcyle license- but he lost his car license which meant his motorcycle learners was cancelled, and the bike was smoking badly so it sat in the shed for several years. Ive decided to rebuild it and give ita basic makeover, splash some paint about and repair the fairings.

Im ready for a dual sport bike, the physical effort of keeping up with the young guns on the twisty stuff is getting too much, sadly there comes a time when I must acknowledge reality.

Looks like a nasty wheelbarrow crash behind your Dommie
Stick some grippier rubber on the Dommie and you will surprise yourself how well they handle bends.
I have Avon Distanzias now and might try the Michelin Anakees next.

For '00 model air screw initial opening is 2 turns out. Maybe your run too lean.
If it's keep stalling check for any cracks on insulator - put there cigarette and see if it sucks smoke.

Insulator (is it correct word for this? manual says insulator..) is the black part between carburetor and engine. If it have a crack, then when you put there lighted cigarette, the smoke will go inside this crack and you will see this. If There is no crack and everything is sealed as it should be, the smoke will go without distortion.
It's hard to say if it's running too lean. You can always richer the mixture by turning out the screw. Try 1 turn out from actual position. The mixture screw is located on carb exit, on downside, similar to this picture: tthis carb is not ours but the location is the same. Try to use just a hand and flat driver bit to turn it out (anticlockwise direction)

I have been having a bit of a look at frames and the tank mounts
NX650 frame

xr650L frame (I think this is the closest match for the NX)

xl600 frame mounts look to low and forward

xr500 frame (not even close)

I will still borow a dr 30L tank to look at but I think that it will sit to far forward to clear to the oil filler on the NX.
I am thinking that the xr650L will probably be the closest match, looking like the original NX front mounts will have to be relocated further forward.

DR frames
looks like the big DR tank could be a prob as it does sit much more forwad than the standard DR tank
