he's indisposed at the moment. Could be back in the garage in a week or two. Or three.
nevermind--- I figured it out....
I finally have the CW mill together with the exception of having the cam degree'd in.
I took most of the innards from my original motor and build a back up motor. Bead blasted the cases and painted them Dupli-Color engine ceramic engine paint. Honed the cylinder and re-ringed the Wiseco 102.4mm piston, CW balanced the crank, NX650 second gear, Mega Cycle cam and rockers, stainless fasteners.
Purdy........i like em.....now stuff it in and see what she does,,we want video
That Harley looks like it could use some TLC and elbow grease.
You offering,i`m sure Steve would love ta have you over to shine his ride,,,and drink his beer...
I love the big fin cylinder head.
Nice work Steve!
Been following this thread for about a year and completely rebuilt my 1988 nx650 engine using the tips tricks and wealth of knowledge where, utterly brilliant and I have learnt heaps.
So, about two weeks ago some arsehole stole my complete engine, brand new excel wheels with tkc80s and the swingarm, totally gutted, but I am determined to finish my custom nx650 project, which leads me to my question.
Will the XR 650 engine fit in the nx650 frame ?? I am looking for a new engine.
A XR650L engine is the same as the NX engine except for the transmission gearing. I don't think a XR650R engine will fit.
Many thanks Steve, opens up a few more options at least, the domi isn't easy to come by in NZ
Wow... good stuff.
Does anyone know if a 1995 domi engine will fit in a 1988 frame ??
They are all the same.
Thanks yet again steve
I have replaced the nx650 oem shock with a hagon which doesn't have a threaded bolt at the base. Would you think I Need a special bolt or would any old mild steel bolt do?
I would use a grade five or even better a grade eight shouldered bolt and a thin self locking nut.
Just an idea: Maybe you could you use the stock bolt if you thread the new shock with a tap. I was surprised how easy this was to do the first time I did it. This depends on the size of the new mount hole compared to the stock bolt, of course.
Thanks both. The new shock is a slightly larger diameter that the old threaded version. Grade eight bolt it is then!
Thanks again guys
First of all - nice work on the motor rebuild.
I found it helpful in my own rebuild. As I was tearing down my motor, I noticed what appeared to be black 'paint chips' in the oil pump screen. I noticed the cam chain guides have a coating on them. The 'paint chips' I found was this coating falling off the guides. So, I ordered replacements, which aren't cheap. When they came in, the coating was already coming off the new OEM parts as well.
Has anyone else seen this?
