Bought it 1996 19dkm


Fixed a new clutch cable, and a new brake pump.
and some tiny things.

First winter:


Painted the exhausts:


Installed Hyperpro front and rear

Got some nice tires, and put a high front mud thing [above the wheel]:



Got my first jam


Got my second jam 1000km later :O !



Now got myself a 2nd hand donor domi.
Fixed the engine onto my domi. and selling the other parts right know.

Yesterday fixed my oil pump and now I can drive HELLYEAH!

I am afraid I am a Honda tragic.

Not only do I have a XR650R, I am also the owner of two NX650s.

The first one was a 89 model I bought off a friend for $1000 who sold it to me cheap knowing it was going to a good home. The other is a 92 that I bought for spares for $200.




I have had a few great rides on the 89, the last being the Scrapheap Adventure ride this year,a charity ride to raise funds for Down Syndrome. http://scrapheapadventureride.com.au/
A ride that was over 2400kms of back roads.
The Idea of the Scrapheap Adventure is to ride a bike that cost $1000 or less.



I had so much fun on the ride this year I am going to do it again next year. This time I decided to see if I could actually get the spares bike to run and ride it.

The poor old thing stood in the weather for years before I rescued it and dragged into my shed and it was in a sad state of disrepair with many parts missing, including the seat and a myriad of bolts.





It would turn over but it had no spark. I robbed a few parts off the “good” NX and soon worked out the CDI was no good as I got it to fire and run with the donor CDI.
We cut the blown CDI open and resoldered all the joints and it works fine now.



Many man hours later I took it for spin around my yard and she goes well and doesn’t blow any smoke at all and there are no rattles!!



I decided to run a XR600 front guard on it just to be different and I am toying with weather to refit the fairing to it or run it naked for the Scrapheap Adventure



It is slowly getting closer to a proper shakedown ride in the near future.

I like the look of newer side panels with the older model fairings it streamlines it and makes it look newer.

I have come across a couple of issues mixing and matching.

As it was a 92 model the indicators were originally in the fairing, the earlier model had them coming off the headlight mount so there is no where to mount the front indicators as the later model headlight bracket doesn't have the mounting tabs for the indicators. The earlier model fairings don't fit the 92 model fuel tanks either, so I used an older tank, only to find then I had to use an older seat, which in turn causes the rear rack not to fit properly and the side covers don't want to fit neatly without modifications either!

All part of the fun!

Thats the issue I have with my 88, I got a black Acerbis 23 litre tank for the facelifted RD02 but ran into the same issues as you with sidepanels and rear guard and rack.
I have got some of the later fairings with the indicators built in and a new headlight surround and sidepanels but now have to chase down the rear guard and later version rack!
They are all different colours as well so unless I want a Noddy bike I have to paint them.
Any ideas for a good paint scheme?

I have a set of plastics that I fixed and sanded, and a local body shop wanted $1200 just to paint them! So now I will be doing them myself. I don't have much experience painting but it can't be that hard can it?

Its all about the prep. Make sure everything is as perfectly sanded and filled as you can get.
