Well, as I promissed, here are some photos of the new and the old rear sprokets








And here with the new fork boots and with the straighten fork and the bike waiting for handlebar clamps...






I broke one of the clamps and I'm looking for used ones, but I have to wait until monday, to call a dealer and see if he got it. If he gets it by monday morning, I could get it here about wednesday....
We'll see what happens with it...

Meanwhile, there are some minor details to pay attention to...

Greetings!
PD. Bronco, maybe you have an air filter problem...
If you have problems with cold starting it may be something with valve clearances...

Sorry for the late response, this week has been busy. Here's the pics of the handlebars:

I'll second that, the bars look great. Are they 7/8" diameter or 1 1/8" (far bars)?

Leo: I adjusted the valves a few weeks ago. The NX starts without issue. But, yeah, it might be time to check the air filter sleeve. I actually thought of that but have been too busy/lazy to actually have a look.

Checking it is just a minute and after that, the bike usually gets really better. Remember that if less air pass thorugh the filter (because of dust particles making a mess there), you will have less air to speed up fuel trhough the carb, and less mix of fuel getting into your cylinder, so the bike won't run as if it was properly clean...

I'm having little problems with some words, jej!
I hope my idea has got across well....

If there is any mistake, correct me please!
Greetings!

Look who came back from the death



I'm not so sure about riding it yet, I won't do until I get spare clamps for the handbar. But as it was fine today and I wanted to ride the bike desperately, I took it for a while, and it is a blast!
When I finish with this, I'll surely do a little trip to one of the near towns to see how it gets with the route...

Greetings!

Post up a mini-ride report so the rest of us can see what some of Argentina looks like. Also, is that front fender the one that came with the bike?

I've restored already a few parts.

I sand-blasted a couple parts. (see picture as an example).

This is the side stand, it was a bit rusty and the paint was in bad shape.
So i sand blasted it, and tonight i'm going to respray it.

I already did the same to the rod connecting the pedal to the rear brake.

Looks familiar Jan. Do you have a sand-blasting cabinet (or sand blaster)? If yes, how nice!

I can use a sand-blasting cabinet at my university after my working hours.

I'll have to see what a ride report looks like so as to write one myself...

I can use the bike now, there is just a little issue with the handlebar, I see it as if it wasn't aligned with the front wheel, but just a little bit...
I just want to ride, je!

The front fender is the stock one, the whole fairings and "visual" part of the bike is stock, je!

It's interesting how different the switch gear is. The engine kill switch is the same as the one I had on my 1986 Honda Reflex TLR200. My NX's switch is different. And, yes, I do not have the same switch on the left handlebar; my NX only has horn, turn signals and headlight dimmer (hi/lo beam). In other words, I do not have the ability to turn the head light off, it's always on (as is the tail light). I also like your locking gas cap, I don't have a locking one at all.

Here's a LINK to the Ride Report I did when I rode a portion of the Trans-American Trail. There is no format, you just make it up as you go (we're not picky).
