Seats from '88-91 are different than later versions. I have reshaped mine and it's much more comfortable
Thanks, I think I'll buy some vinyl and try recover my seat.

Thanks for the input.
Pablo especially, with the information about the small oil tube.

So, please let me know if I'm crazy here!?

Considering it is winter, and I have a KTM 950 AdventureS to ride as my other bike, I'm thinking of really getting into my NX650.

I have a few long term plans for the NX that will be pretty cool, so maybe this is a good time to really check and clean everything.

I'm thinking of disassembling, cleaning, inspecting, repairing where needed and reassembling the entire NX!

Is this a good idea or crazy!?

Brian

I wouldn't split the cases unless you were suspicious of something, or wanted to do something crazy like add a kickstart . But otherwise, you might as well tear the whole thing down.

Anyone else have sluggish indicators? Not sluggish as in rate of flash but in the time it takes for them to start flashing once the switch is moved?
MIne take maybe 1 or 1.5 seconds to start flashing, I have covered some ground in that time and would like them to be faster.

I don't remember if this article goes into it, but on the NX you will need to relocate the rear brake switch, but really that's a lot easier than the other stuff required.

I had the same issue on mine. I finally took apart the turn signal switch. Cleaned everything really well and then lubricated the necessary sliding points. That took care of it. Signal now starts flashing as soon as I click the switch.

Thanks Andy, and Pablo as well. If I don't sell the bike, I'll put it in the garage and fixer up this winter.

Thanks,

Hi frens,

I have one issue on my dominator....so before I take out the carb again,would love to hear some feedbacks...

My dominator will just shut off/choke off while idling....The carburator manifold between the carb and block has been replaced after I found out that it has cracked....

Thanks in advance...

If anyone is interested please send me your E-Mail address and I can forward you the info and pics. I guess now I will have to sell the OEM rack that I bought from England.

The problem with the engine cut/off alittle solved at the moment...only once in awhile it does happen....could be due to the exhaust air leak on the mid section...

anyways...here's what is done to the bike as of today...

AJ,
I really like the front fairing on your Domi.
What year is your bike?

I wonder if that front fairing would fit on to a 1988 NX60 in the US!

I seem to remember your bike looking a bit different a couple years ago. Did you change the fairing? Maybe you just painted it. Anyway, nice work.

hi,I sold both my previous domi the '87 & '94 model 2yrs ago.

just got this domi frm a.friend who havent given up on the bike and left untouched for 2mths plus.

i found out the cause of it was due to wrong fitting of some parts of the carb.

tis was a '94 model.i repaint it after got it running and do it the classic design.the headlite was done by the previous guy.twin headlite mods and fibreglass onto the oiginal front fairings.
