Looks great! Nothing like taking a simple bike and making it even simpler.
Brillant!

Nice writeup. Thanks for sharing. I'll be doing an XRV street tracker project soon. Your article has a lot of good info.

I picked up an 88 for $200, runs strong. I was planning to take it away from its root and do more of a flat tracker, but wasn't sure if the Dommie's would berate me for doing such a thing. After seen that sweet bike, I may have to do a write up.

Winter riding

Just wanted to share that the Dominator indeed is a very fine bike for riding wintertime.

Best regards/Dan

Nice!

I personally prefer a fully tacked (i.e. 100 snow tacks per wheel) Husaberg for winter roads

Husaberg is a nice ride!

I use TKC 80 with approx 220 studs in each wheel.
Makes a very good ride on icy roads.

Maybe.

The engine in itself WILL fit the frame. Fittings and supports (i.e. engine mounts) are in the same positions throughout the history of the less-than-modern XR/XL/NX bikes. NX650 and XR600R differ only through cylinder/piston dimensions, camshaft profile and electro starter gears. Maybe decompression mechanism but I'm not sure of that.

Two things you will have to consider: NX needs room to accomodate the electric starter, directly behind the cylinder, on top of the crankcase and somewhat below the carb.

Also while the motor might fit, most other things (airbox w/ battery holder comes to mind) are almost guaranteed not to.

If it's a 1988-2000 XR600, then yes, it will drop-in for the most part. Except for the starter itself, both engines have the exact same external dimensions. You will need to use the 600's stator and accommodate the NX's lack of a kick start.

thanks for the information. trying to plan out a build and after checking classifieds there's a considerable cost difference between the two frames. I have the NX already but if my motor will slide in the xr frame, then I wouldn't have to tear apart to build up.

As the others said, if you're using the NX intake and exhaust you should have minimal problems fitting the XR engine in. The only place I think you'll have an issue is with the rear brake switch. It sits right where the XR's kickstart lever will sit. If you weld, or know someone who does, the switch bracket can be moved somewhere else. Even if welding isn't an option you can probably reattach the switch to the back of the frame tube using a hose clamp and maybe a screw to keep the clamp from sliding up and down.

Some non-US model NX's came with a kickstart. Can someone who has one of these tell me where the rear brake switch mounts on these bikes?

If you want to put a genuine brake light switch holder on an XR600 use part No 7, 35358-MK2-650ZC, you can get from australia or europe as they had them fitted in those countries.



This is the australian model drum brake, kickstart 88,89 NX650, you can order parts from cmsnl in europe.

If you plan on using from the NX, you need to use the following:
- Engine
- Carb
- Electrics (CDI, battery, charging regulator, handlebar controls, lights, turn sigs)
- Airbox (this is very important as you can't use an XR/XL airbox with NX carb)

An the XR parts you will want, and their problems:
- Frame (problem: no fitting for NX airbox/battery holder)
- (maybe) Wiring harnass (problem: not compatible with the NXs electrics)
- (maybe) Exhaust (problem: not compatible with NX airbox)
- (maybe) Rear shock (problem: not compatible with NX airbox)
