Oh, my bike sounds sweet now:)

New: Camchain, valves, shims, oil seals, gaskets - all OEM.

Good as new starter clutch bits, many.

Deglazed cylinder, decoked piston - plus it was discovered the oil pump was only being held in place by one bolt.

Now, it sounds tight as hell

AX-1 NX250 OEM spark plug

many folks around here dont know that the original NX OEM spark plug is plenty different from the standard issue NGK catalog plug.
The original plug is semi-threaded, with a tight fit on the aluminum head and the electrodes look much different too.
Code:

They may have the same part # but there not the same. With the OEM plug the engine runs much smoother and the temp is kept on a lower level as well.
Just sayin

Cool2 Heat-and-no-spark

After replacing the CDI, ignition coil, spark-plug, and some faith, it finally seems to be working fine. Got home last night from work, installed all that and voilá!

When for a 30mile ride and nothing but perfection occurred, I love my bike again, so now I´m into making it look pretty again.

I must say I almost went suicidal last night.. I was like in the middle of nowhere. when suddenly the engine started to fail.. I said Sh*t, not again!!

I pulled over, long-face mode, and I just let my mind sink under useless thoughts... Tried to start the engine, unsuccessfully. Don´t ask me why, I turned the fuel knob to reserve, hit the ignition and Brrroooooom!!!! Back to life!

I have a dirty fuel tank!!!

Gotta be honest, I almost cried..

I may be interested in the seat - depending on color and condition. The seat on the NX I just purchased is more slippery than a banana peel, so I am trying to figure out the best alternative. Let me know if you decide to sell. Thanks - JD

I'd just get yours re-covered.

All the stock seat cover on these bikes seem a bit shit, to be honest. I had mine re-covered and that annoying strap removed for under $5.

Yea - that's an option...but that means I have to find a place to do it, and take the seat in...and wait...

anyone interested in a plug and play solution
for a better front end?

I have an XR250 front end that will perfectly fit
incl tripples, forks, axle, 21" wheel
maybe even the brake assy, as the NX line will be too short
actually I also have a 17" drum rear wheel too many

NX250 - Rural Road Touring Bike Mods

We saw this bike chained to a tree in the infield of Mid Ohio Raceway while attending the Super Bike Races.



A week later we purchased it for the daughters to learn to ride. On the ride home I low sided and rag dolled it into the woods at 70 MPH. It was decided that we would get an NX125 for the children.

Being impressed with the performance of the stock machine, I set out to create a back roads bike to save wear and tear on the larger road bikes. Wheel, Tire, and Suspension upgrades would be required for the remote roads traveled.



Most of the mods were taken from the inmates of ADV Rider. Thanks To All

This is the bike that I needed / wanted and was built to meet my requirements. It was a work in progress for several years and now my favorite bike that I have owned over the last 32 years of adult riding.



A 21" front wheel was laced to an NX250 Front Hub with Buchanan KHON906SH Spoke Set

NX125 fender for the 21" front tire - fits the NX250 forks and gators perfect
NX125 fork brace married to a modded NX250 Brace - PDF doc wold not load

1" PVC spacer (1 1/16" diameter) and Stainless Steel washer on top of the stock front springs

20wt fork oil for 200LB rider

17" Rear Wheel, XL250R from 1986
SV650 rear shock (99 to 03 [yellow] is the1st gen and has a higher spring rate) full length (not redrilled / shortened) = bolt on

MT21 tires have good road manners and can travel creek bed roads and sandy bottom water crossings.
80/90-21" front and 120/90-17" rear = same weight as the stock Trail Wing tires (19" & 16") so unsprung weight is kept low for performance.



3" Kick Stand Extention, 5/8" OD steel tube x 4" long - 1/2" inserted per end and welded both ends - see photo below

46 Tooth Rear Sprocket, climbs trees in 1st and redlines 6th gear at 84 mph per GPS = 7.8% ratio increase from the stock sprockets and tires

Open up the top of the air box



Open the bottom of the exhaust can and screen it as a spark arrestor



Filed down the inside header welds = 6% increase in area



Main jet to 145 from stock 138
Shim Main Jet Needle by 0.056" with a washer



Turn out the idle mixture screw to suite

XR100 1987 Foot Pegs = bolt on using the NX250 pin and springs



XR250R 1984/1985 Spring loaded Shifter = bolt on



EBC OS6001 280mm Oversized Rotor comes with relocation bracket = bolt on



EBC MXS185 Brake Pads = bolt on

Blazer 55w Fog Light, Auto Zone, Use washers as spacers to mount to cowling hardware
Blazer 113db car horn, Auto Zone, needs bell sawn for flush mounting



32" wide handle bars with carbon fibre look
Hand Guards with carbon fibre look and aluminum support molded inside - levers remain full length
Handle Bar Risers, Rocky Mountain ATV



Garmin with RAM mount on left - TomTom mount and Power Port on right



Roto-Pax aux. fuel cell with custom mount





90 degree in line fuel filter - Mud and dirt can fall into the tank as the Roto-Pax gets dirty



Wolfman Mini Beta Max Tail Bag with custom mounting plate adaptor to stock rack for overnight rides





The skid plate was not changed as the ground clearance is now over 12". This bike is ridden responsibly most times and big obstacles can be avoided.

Nice work HondaScoot!

I'll link up THIS post to the front page index, if you don't mind...

then you won't have to repeat/repost for each time someone asks you to list you mods..

not trying to sell that wheel,
want to find out if someone is interested in the whole set-up
the 21" front end will raise the bike quite some,
even if you lower the tripples a bit,
the 17" rear will help getting everything back in balance

Nx250 in Johnson valley

Work sent me to the desert to tune on a race car. So I took the nx250 and the mt250. Two of my favorite bikes of all time. It would be impossible to choose the best bike, but my girlfriend will say the elsinore 250.

When the race car broke we spent the rest of the day exploring some really pretty desert.
