Recently added to my stable, 1988 NX650. This is my second NX650, I regretted selling my last one so this is a replacement. Increased the main jet, removed the smog pump, other than that it is stock.

I'll buy the rear luggage rack, $100.00

Well that is the other option, but it will cost allot to send a gas tank to NA. Probably the same price as buying one that has not been under the Saharan Sun. And frankly, I don't have the time to part it out.

I think it would be a better opportunity for someone to fly down, get there jollies on it for a month or 2 and resell it.
One might call this....a "vacation"....

I have Nx 650 1993 as a second bike. I like it a lot. Easy to drive and handle.. easy to do your own maintenance and service and robust engine and frame. Good bike for wheelies also....

Aftermarket exhaust

Hello folks, anyone has knowledge about what brand of aftermarket exhaust is available for late 90s Honda Dominator?

Preferrably in pairs like stock, I'd know staintune has it but is 2 into 1.

Thanks.

Leovince, Arrow, Sebring build 2-2 systems. Why do you want one? I'm desperately looking for a good-fitting, affordable 2-1 system. The GPR I have currently is useless.

Haven't done much off road yet.
