    You could always run the VIN numbers and see what comes up, if the seller won't provide them, RUN do not walk away

    I know the NX makes a good off-road bike, but if it doesn't have a title, whats the point? Sometimes they say "transferable registration, which is the same as a title" IT ISN'T. I wouldn't buy anything without an actual title.

    Purchased this gem-in-the-ruff from inmate bigtrailie along with 2 1/2 sets of tires.

    [​IMG]

    1 set of Shinko 705, 1 set of D606, and a Kenda K671 rear tire came with the bike and helped fill the small truck's bed.

    This one starts and runs well being all stock for now. It will receive a disassembly, inspection, and corrosion correction program. This NX will complete the trilogy with the 125 and 250 already in hand.

    Having read the first 120 pages of this thread with notes taken, there is great knowledge and support for this machine,

    I will retain the stock dual exhaust as it is one of its distinguishing features.

    Has anyone modded the stock cans / mufflers besides removing the carbon clean out plates?

    A picture of a sectioned can would be GREAT to view the internal design.

    Take them off with a forklift, those cans weigh a TON.
    I can't tell you what they are like inside, mine came from CA with a Supertrapp fitted.

    I paid him with cash. It's almost as good as real money! :D

    The serious spending is about to begin:
    Ohio DMV, Service Honda, Race Tech, Progressive, Ebay, Amazon, Rocky Mountain, XR's Only, MRA, Hepco Becker, Sutton Cycle, JAG, and Cigar Mikes. :eek1

    The cans weigh 7 lbs each side or so i have read. If true that is good given the welded on pipes are fairly long going forward to meet the headers. I would like to know if they are two or three chamber cans.

    I have an 88 NX650, mint condition. They are a lot of fun, but geared towards a shorter rider I think.
    Anyone want to buy mine?

    strange you think that ..I'm 1.90m and never found it low ..far from it . Only concerns i've ever heard re the height were that if anything it was too tall for some riders.

    Hi folks,
    just want to know if the clutch casing for my bike ('93 model) can be swapped with cases from other years? Can a clutch case from the XR650L fit too? I need to replace mine, so any info would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    I love the look of the dual cans on the Dommie.....but ALL stock exhaust cans are very restrictive, and usually big power and throttle response killers. I'd either mod the stockers for better flow, or try and find some freer-breathing aftermarkets if any are still available. Nothing I own has the stock exhaust on it anymore :wink:
