    DST, I tried to save you some money, I had a feeling it was the coil.

    I never mind spending money on the NX, I feel like any parts I buy will probably be obsolete soon so I might as well buy what I can while I can!:D Plus I have a couple big trips planned this year, and hope to achieve a goal I've had for many years about riding to Alaska.

    The ignition coil was working properly, but the small end of the wire that connects to the spark plug boot had somehow become sorta frayed.

    So Pablo, did you end up finishing up your NX turbo? I turbocharged my zx14, but I used a kit designed for the stock motor, didn't start from scratch like you. I also had a Yamaha Seca 650 turbo, that was a carb blow through system like your NX. The guys over on TT are dying to hear some more feedback on your project :nod

    Getting the NX to its current state has taken a whole lot of effort. Unfortunately there are a few things I wish I did differently; things that are expensive to change and that will wipe out a lot of work that I've done on the bike. So the bike kind of needed to sit on the back porch for a couple years while I forgot about all the effort I've put into it. I also needed to save up some more money. But fear not, just a couple days ago I ordered a brand new Garrett GT1241 turbo for the bike. Now I need to start redesigning the intake/exhaust. There will be updates soon...

    The sprocket is the same for the XR600R to 1990 and all the XL600
    Sprocket specialists make one 5033 is the part number.
    I don't think the 7 spline one wears as badly as the later 14 spline version.

    Thanks! nice link I looked it up RD02540 but doesn't seem to fit any of the two A / B models. Though when looking at the 20Kw mine matches the preformance :(
    But also mentioned is the "Hauptd├╝sen" (Main jets) with sparepart number I will check that once i get it out of winter storage.
    But having just bought the insulator "Vergaser Ansaugstutzen" i can see this is at least the fit for the 35kw one (16211MN9000) :-)

    What code is on the carburetor?
    You'll see it stamped on the side.

    Well, to his defense, Germany does not go by model year but by the date the vehicle was first registered/plated for traffic.
    You'll find the exact date "Tag der ersten Zulassung" in the papers you hopefully got.

    Ok. So should I buy one for an XR600 or XL600, or get the Sunstar version for an 88 NX?

    Whoops, never mind. They're listed as obsolete for the XR600 and XL600! I guess Honda is one step ahead of me:D

    Hepco and Becker question. From everything I read the crash bars are less than a perfect fit when you go to put them on and require some manuvering to get them to align properly. I'm install my new set of engine bars and the right side bar has a problem hitting the right air deflector on the inside once everything is tight. Has anyone else had the same problem or do I need to just slot the holes a little more on the bars and make it work?

    Hi gang!

    '88 NX650 in the US.

    I am making some repars to the mounting tabs on the front fairings and I need some help.

    On both front side fairings there is a mounting point that is missing.
    It looks like it should line up and mount to the two metal nipples that are coming off of the front side of the fuel tank.

    I have no idea what this mounting point is supposed to look like but I would like to recreate it.

    Can someone post up a picture of what it looks like?

    Thanks
    Brian

    I have not test fit my guard. Been fixing body cracks and making tabs for TWO WEEKS!

    Slight re-forming, using washers as spacers, and slotting holes could remedy your clearance issues.

    McVick, I am intimate with the 1988 body! Point out which ones and could possibly cast some for you.

    Thanks

    On your's, do you see the whit dot just behind the "vent".
    This spot lines up nicely with the two nipples coming off the tank on each side, one on each side.

    I believe something should go where the white dot is and secure to the metal nipple on the front of the fuel tank.

    If I am wrong, does any one know what the metal nipples ar on the front of the fuel tank?

    Thanks
    Brian

    Sorry. Every parts fiche I saw said those little connector bits are obsolete. I wanted them as well. The broken point of attachment to the fairing is tiny. I am willing to go with out them.

    Made push connectors

    The metal ears on the tank are meant to have rubber grommets in them.
    The towers on the fairing that are slightly forward and below the duct have a teardrop shaped end, this pushes into the rubber grommet on the tank to secure the fairing.
    The same system is used for the sidepanels to hold them to the frame.
