xl600v?

The TransAlp (xl600v)was a similar vintage v-twin.
600cc, dual sport Honda.

The smaller v-twin from Honda was the VTR250.

which kinda looks like the NX250

send me a PM if you wish to discuss models further, sir, thanks!

Insurance

I just got a liability insurance policy (100/300) for my NX. Does $92 a year sound right?

Lots of variables for insurance like age, driving record, MSF course, other insurance w/company. That being said, I have full coverage on my NX250, XR650R, and a few other bikes. They cost $112/year each with a $50 deductible. Through Geico, with my other vehicles.

Scoutman-
Thanks, I will investigate further. Is that for all 3 bikes? Or individually? I will ask my agent what the discount is for taking the MSF course. Thanks for your reply.

only one day, costs a lot less and you get the same completion card

Wheel bearing source

Never heard of "VXB" and it's a shame...

They want $1.75 for what honda wants $9.36 for...



http://www.vxb.com/page/bearings/PRO...FY9V7AodXlpqMw

see #20
http://www.hondaofcoolsprings.com/fi...1990&fveh=3591

$3.50
edit: http://www.vxb.com/page/bearings/PROD/Kit9704



Oh wait... NOTHING says Nachi or made in japan... It might be a POS china bearing but I thought the P# was Natchi.

Bargin Basement Bike Video

Being cheap and “retired”, living off SS , but still wanting to make video’s of some of my rides, I came up with this compromise.
I took my little Nikon Cool Pix S8000 camera ( that takes video ) and mounted it on my NX.250
I mounted it on right brake clamp screws. I may experiment with different places to mount it. Handlebars give off a bit of vibration. I’m trying to think how to mount it to my chest with straps.
An on-going project!

Here’s a sheet showing how I mounted it.

Not the best video out there, but it works. This is my first try.

Good video!

You have a very good looking neighborhood, jej!
I'd love to be there just for riding a little.

About the camera, I think that you could try to think of a better way of attaching (sorry if it isn't well written) the camera to the bike, in the position it is, it takes very good images, but it moves a little...
And for the sound of the wind, I would try to put a cloth covering the camera's microphe, and then test it an see what happens...

I hope that what I said will help you...
Greetings from Argentina!

Thanks for your input.

As for the wind noise, I didn't realize the mike's were on top of my camera. If you check out the ( updated ) pdf link again, you'll notice, I put a piece of foam over the mike's. Haven't had a chance to make another ride around to test effectiveness of the foam.

I extended the mount to allow me to use the camera bag holder.This would allow for more vibration, so I also put foam under the mount to dampen the vibration. When It stops raining here, I'll make another run to test it out.

I chose this location because it was convient to reach the camera controls. I was afraid the vibration would be more.

Thanks for your comments on my neighborhood. This is just a small sample of some great riding here in New Hampshire. We have quite a few abandoned roads that were used in the colonial days. Back then there were farms every where. Now much of these back roads are slowley opening back up for building new houses. Another 10 - 20 years, they will all be gone for off road riding and exploring.

Here's some more scenes from New Hampshire... http://www.youtube.com/user/larry313.../1/b77o7zvi23M


Dam! if it weren't so cold up in Canada, I'd move up there!!

Wiring diagram

Can someone send me a copy of the high def wiring diagram that arthduro sent out a while back?
Thanks,

TB

EDIT: Also is anyone interested in a tire swap? MY NX came with a good set of kniooobbies on it and I need a pair of street shoes as it will be 98% dinking around town. The front is a dunlop and the rear is a michelin starcross. They are both the OEM size. PM me if you would like to trade your own dual sport or street treads. Thanks.

Fiep does good work. Maybe that could make a good thread in wrenching. Could be informative.

But f*ck bickering- report back on how the swop tests out over the next while.
