Excellent work, Fernando. I'd love to hear more about your trip.
U got a nice bike over there !
Have much pleasure with it
When checking oil today, I noticed what seems to be some white residue on my dipstick. I understand that this is from condensation and small trips, but is it something to be worried about?
The bike is not watercooled so there is no headgasket issues to worry about.
When was the last oil change? If you are worried change the oil for fresh stuff, it can't hurt.
Totally agree with bounder,
It ain't the money to be sure. And oil is very very very important at the domi.
BTW mostly it is water inside the oil
how regularly do you need to change the oil ? every 5000 kms ?
In the manuel they says about: every 3200km but 4000 a 5000 km is fine.
When you change it, recommed to change the oil filter too, and very important clean the oil screen [it's on the bottem of the oil frame]
Sorry, I don't agree... These engines are hard on oil.... every 3000km is wise...
If the oil is getting close to being black, change it.... Thin black carbon filled oil doesn't lubricate or cool the engine the same as good clean oil does...
(Edit: it probably depends on what sort of oil, and what sort of riding you're doing.... IMO, once the oil is black/burnt looking, change it)
What did you use for the caliper bracket and brake disc 320mm?
True That- my engine seems to be on the rattly side slightly as well... but the technical manual i have says "oil+filter change every 6000km" but i'll take your advice on it, every 3000.
So I'm going to change my oil now, after a question i posted earlier about white residue on my dipstick.
I haven't had the bike for a long time, so I have only changed oil once before. I drained all the oil out, put in half of the new oil, let it run for about 5 minutes and then put in the other half. I also changed the filter. Is this the right procedure?
Also, I read somewhere about a sort of filter inside the frame that needs changing. What is this and where is it?
There are two filters, one in the engine, the other is at the bottom of the front downtube, I check mine every year or so, they don't seem to gather much in the way of debris.
You have to be careful when checking the downtube one as the hose can kink without you realising it if you just tighten the nut without taking care.
I'm looking for a stock NX650 gas tank. Preferably something without a lot of damage. I'll be sandblasting and painting it, so a few scratches is no big deal. Clean on the inside is the most important. Please PM me and we can work something out.
Happy like a child with sweets
