Well, to his defense, Germany does not go by model year but by the date the vehicle was first registered/plated for traffic.
You'll find the exact date "Tag der ersten Zulassung" in the papers you hopefully got.

Sprocket specialists make one 5033 is the part number.
I don't think the 7 spline one wears as badly as the later 14 spline version.

Ok. So should I buy one for an XR600 or XL600, or get the Sunstar version for an 88 NX?

Whoops, never mind. They're listed as obsolete for the XR600 and XL600! I guess Honda is one step ahead of me

Hepco and Becker question. From everything I read the crash bars are less than a perfect fit when you go to put them on and require some manuvering to get them to align properly. I'm install my new set of engine bars and the right side bar has a problem hitting the right air deflector on the inside once everything is tight. Has anyone else had the same problem or do I need to just slot the holes a little more on the bars and make it work?

Need help - can someone take a picture?

Hi gang!

'88 NX650 in the US.

I am making some repars to the mounting tabs on the front fairings and I need some help.

On both front side fairings there is a mounting point that is missing.
It looks like it should line up and mount to the two metal nipples that are coming off of the front side of the fuel tank.

I have no idea what this mounting point is supposed to look like but I would like to recreate it.

Can someone post up a picture of what it looks like?

Thanks
Brian

I have not test fit my guard. Been fixing body cracks and making tabs for TWO WEEKS!

Slight re-forming, using washers as spacers, and slotting holes could remedy your clearance issues.

McVick, I am intimate with the 1988 body! Point out which ones and could possibly cast some for you.

On your's, do you see the whit dot just behind the "vent".
This spot lines up nicely with the two nipples coming off the tank on each side, one on each side.

I believe something should go where the white dot is and secure to the metal nipple on the front of the fuel tank.

If I am wrong, does any one know what the metal nipples ar on the front of the fuel tank?

Thanks
Brian

Sorry. Every parts fiche I saw said those little connector bits are obsolete. I wanted them as well. The broken point of attachment to the fairing is tiny. I am willing to go with out them.

Made push connectors



Filled in panels




Made tabs

The metal ears on the tank are meant to have rubber grommets in them.
The towers on the fairing that are slightly forward and below the duct have a teardrop shaped end, this pushes into the rubber grommet on the tank to secure the fairing.
The same system is used for the sidepanels to hold them to the frame.

I took a pic of what the mounting bracket looks like. I can measure if anyone needs.

Nice work, Scoot. Looks time-consuming.

Yes to time consuming. Not to mention stinky and plastic chips from the dremel going everywhere. Wife of 32 years puts up with it. 17 places needed attention and the rear fender has not been touched. That PlastiFix REALLY WORKS. Long term will tell how well.

It has been slow and tedious, but I came home for lunch today to find a package from MMOTOPARTS. Needless to say my enthusiasm for this project got a giant boost!

Thats a very tidy looking rack, great work on the fairings. Time consuming but rewarding I guess?

I just received an email back from Sunstar about the sprocket size. This is it:



HI Dave,
This has turned into an interesting question actually.

I’ve been researching it and it looks like this may be mis-listed in our catalog. We show our 320xx front sprocket for the NX but I’ve checked a couple of our competitors and compared the specifications and it looks like the total height, with the embossed side of the sprocket should be 10mm and our 320 is only 7.8mm.

Do you have the OE part that you pulled off where we can check the measurement with a set of calipers? I’m guessing its supposed to be 10mm and ours is listed in error but would need to check against the OE part to be certain.

Thanks,

Mike Ivers
