    To debaisley e-mail question
    Here is my not perfect windscreen solution last year. Slipstream Spitfire.

    It can come off vary fast. It has 2 mounts on the handlebars. Keeps the wind off the body and makes the bike more stable on freeway. Keeps rain off body.

    The negative side is it rotates with the bars so you have to keep a steep angle to not hit the cowl.

    I hope we can figure out what works well. I may cutt the bottom and see this helps me change the steaper and not pointed at my throat. I have to huch/bend a little too Kiri. I know this isn't ideal so I don't have it on now.

    Hi GeNX

    The last 24 hours i am a bit ill that's why i am delay the picture that i promised.

    Your windscreen positioning looks to be very wrong .

    If this was my , i would cut it , to make the bottom flat , and secondly i would bent the corners of this metal bars , so to become more vertical.

    I just return from work , later on, we will analyze the solution more . :type

    Ok , the weather is rainy here , and i took the pictures that represent better the practical usability of this project.

    The pictures are taken from the riders hight , so to get the most honest geometrical perspective .

    Especially the one taken from the front represents 100% the real thing.

    Ok , enjoy the wet Kiriakos with his AX . :D

    hey guys

    just would like to put a thumbs up here for this thread
    it helped me big time in my 12 month hunt to find a NX250 I could afford.

    So after many many internet hours, I have finally got one
    so I have attached a picture here
    she will need some loving,
    but i am more then prepared to provide that
    with some of your help that is

    I did spend some time browsing through the thread
    and was surprised that nobody posted this yet
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6h2rrBF7Nx0
    a very very nice looking NX250
    one day mine will get close to this hehe sweet dreams

    Kiriakos, your AX1 is amazing!!! that kr screen is fenomenal
    and i love the attention to detail, not just in your installations
    by the way you share them with us

    Jeff your rides look like soo much fun
    you really know where to take your bike
    maybe one day I can make it to a trip south of the boarder

    any ways keep it up guys! i will try to contribute more
    now that I have something to contribute with.

    Oh and if anyone comes across a luggage rack for this baby
    let me know, as I would love to have one.
    (Kiriakos, I am still scouring the ebay and no luck, but thanks for the last auction post and if you do see one ever again please let me know)

    good weather is almost here in Toronto
    so Im looking forward to some sunshine riding
    and for all the salt to get washed away

    please keep this going as this thread is probably the
    most comprehensive nx250 rider info page I have found online

    cheers to all and happy riding

    Hi guys,

    my name is Patrick from Normandy-France. Like every frenchman my english is very poor so try to be indulgent with me.
    I've got a NX since last year and I plan to rebuilt it from a to z.
    I'm very impressed by kiriakos work and may be this picture will remember him some good moment :

    http://www.advrider.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=161678&stc=1&d=1208023877

    ... but it's not Greece last year, but France today !
    I'm very interessed by every kind of mods so I'll post some pictures of my own experience.

    Bye Patrick

    I wanted to put my motor into a CRF frame, but it doesn't work.
    I can't align the motor spocket... with the wheel spocket.

    ...and what about the swingarm ?
    A 450 CRF swinarm fits !! the only thing is to change the barillets and build a spacer on left and right side :

    Thank you kiriakos,

    let me introduce myself, I'm 41, I'm IT administrator.
    My first bike was an MTX 200, I converted it with a 125 CR (1984) fork and swingarm.
    I onwed a 125 KTM, 250 YZ enduro, 410 HVA (the number 7 hand made in France with a 510 cylinder in a 350 motor), 250 HVA, 200KDX, 250 KTM EXC (I've got always this fabulous bike), a 450 CRF (with an exploded motor, you can see it on the pictures) and of course a 250 NX (I've found it on Ebay on may 2007 after 1 year of search for 800 € :thumb).
    I was riding in enduro in National 2 division from 1991 to 2001.
    I've always consider a 250 NX as a very reliable and easy bike. A french guy have built a 310 NXR with a NX motor and a 90' 125 CR (with a 84' tank). I really don't understand why honda didn't product this bike :

    http://www.advrider.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=161696&stc=1&d=1208033528

    They have bored the motor to 310 Cm3 with a 300 Xr piston in it...
    My NX is a 239 Cm3, in 80's french taxes was 10% for the bikes under 240 Cm3 and 20% for more than 240Cm3 and I can affirm that 250Cm3 has never been imported by honda in France.
    Concerning your bike I've noticed that you said it was coming from France, but I'm 99,99 % that AX-1 has never been imported in France. But, if your bike is a 239 Cm3 it's for french taxes purpose, so your bike is a mystery for me...

    BTW, I've got a question did someone have change the metal tank by a plastic tank, if yes wich model and what about the seat and shrouds ?
    Thx

    Bye

    Patrick

    Patrick only the engine is from France .... i got it from Greek dealer as import from France..

    This days the second hand imports from Japan for complete motorcycles or engines , is over .
    Thats why i end up, with engine from France.

    You look to have dirty background :poser (lots of mud trails )

    My AX-1 has more street concept in it , from the NX 250 .
    And i love it more, for that ..

    Welcome again ... :thumb
