Does anybody know dommie rear spring rate, what it is from the factoy and what you have get by buying aftermarket shocks? Any info will be usefull.
I will be putting some pictures soon of my dommie project and some description.
the "cheap" version I'm planning is the Wilbers 540: link. They sell on ebay for €315,-They'll build it according to your weight. The corresponding WP damper is 550,-
I have an '88 NX650 that I want to install a modded carb on. I found someone willing to sell me the carb off his '06 XR650L (he replaced it with an Elderbrock pumper, the one he wants to sell me already had the dynojet kit installed). I was wondering if anyone knew if they both use the same carb? I found out the XR650L uses a 42.5 kehin CV carb but after several searches I can't seem to find info on the NX's carb size. I want to keep the stock carb stock and use the Xr650L's modified carb in case I mess up.
Thanks for your help!!
I would say GO FOR IT. The engine in the NX650 and XR650L are almost identical. Somebody smarter than I can tell you the difference. For that matter there are a lot of similarities to the XR600 as well. I have looked into a carb change myself. There is a guy in Chicago (I think) who recently did a jet change on his stock carb and was very happy. To get maximum benefit, you would want to change the intake and exhaust as well, but then you are talking some serious money. As far as my research goes, I think the Mikuni Flat Slide 41MM carb would be the best option for the money.
Keep us up on your progress.
I have no idea about the NX650's carb diameter, but they are all designated as Keihin VE80 for the '88s. From the outside, they look indentical to the one on the XR650L. I'm not sure you'd gain anything in a straight swap. Look at 4strokes.com for ideas on modification.
I installed a Dynojet kit on my NX, along with a modded airbox, K&N, ABP headers and GPR 1-1 exhaust.
Here's a list with Euro NX carb types:

Just an FYI for NX'ers- I'm fiddin to do the smog removal thing and a fella on Da 'Bay has the block off plates for 10 bucks.
Two sets left as I type.
There is a 1990 NX 650 here in Ecuador for real cheap if anyone is interested in taking a ride. The bike is from France and without papers, hence the cheap price. Proly around $200. Runs decent, has aftermarket Acerbis tank, bashplate is also a water resevoir and has a GPS mount. Decent deal, once it is out of the country.....
Buy it and part it out. I'll gave ya the $200 for the tank and bash plate.
Buy it, pay the gas...
and I'll ride it up ??
Recently added to my stable, 1988 NX650. This is my second NX650, I regretted selling my last one so this is a replacement. Increased the main jet, removed the smog pump, other than that it is stock.
I'm really starting to dislike you mas!!!
I'll buy the rear luggage rack, $100.00
Well that is the other option, but it will cost allot to send a gas tank to NA. Probably the same price as buying one that has not been under the Saharan Sun. And frankly, I don't have the time to part it out.
I think it would be a better opportunity for someone to fly down, get there jollies on it for a month or 2 and resell it.
One might call this....a "vacation"....
I got a new toy.........
Its got a big tank, braided front brakelines and a staintune pipe. Done a road ride and its ok, doing a off road trip tomorrow about 300kms in the dirt.
Should be fun.
I have Nx 650 1993 as a second bike. I like it a lot. Easy to drive and handle.. easy to do your own maintenance and service and robust engine and frame. Good bike for wheelies also....
Just got one in November it needs some work so it's not on the road yet. Can't wait
Hello folks, anyone has knowledge about what brand of aftermarket exhaust is available for late 90s Honda Dominator?
Preferrably in pairs like stock, I'd know staintune has it but is 2 into 1.
Hi, I sold my old Domi last Friday! I' liked this bike, but I bought Adv R 98'
He it is http://foto.inbox.lv/kalvis~starostnieks/Honda-Dominator/IMG-5514.jpg
