Yep blame me, I'm the child and small animal killer.
dual filament bulb.
Replace the bulb.
the NX crank is no longer for sale
The item ended a mere four hours after i posted it.
I'm sorry, i will continue to look for you.
Thanks Sir hopefully some one will sell another, Im also thinking that since theres another gear next to it with the same groove it will be easier for the shop to repair it since theres a pattern. Should I go for the fix since the grooves are just shaved and not totally removed.?
Thanks to the Crusher of Valves
Jeff also pointed that out...my comment back was
I am in the shame house now
anyways I am going to have a little bit more time in a few days
maybe we can have a chat about tread merging and how I can help.
Just so we don't make these double posts.
Pete I haven's seen Apex post in a while ever since he created his own board. So I think all the jerkness is gone.. or at least has been doused for now.
OK here's the deal I contacted these guys to see if they had a shock.
They said no, but if I had a few friends that also wanted a shock they would be willing to make them. So if you guys are sick of the pogo stick of a shock on your NX jump in and e-mail this guy.

What kind of shock are we talking about here?
Drop-in replacement (no overly huge reservoir)?
Doesn't cost an arm and a leg?
If it's a yes to all four I'd be pretty interested. I just came back from a 600 mile trip to the Black Hills last weekend. On some of the trails I'm pretty sure I was bottoming out.
I'll get pics up sometime.
Yes I believe all their shocks are servicable.
Yes I believe it will be adjsustable.
Yes it will be a drop in.
No this won't be cheap! I Checked most of their prices and this shock will cost more than a $1.00 and less than $1,000 I was told it will cost them as much as $20,000 to do the R&D to get it built.
I don't know about you guys, but this bike is a joke without a good shock under it. I'll spend $1,000 for a really good shock.
Check out the sight below and drop them an e-mail. We won't know the true cost unless they see there is a market to build it.
I can get you guys Works Performance shocks at dealer price if your interested. They will be setup for your weight and riding style. They are also preload adjustable and rebuildable.
I don't know about the rest of you guys but mine has less the 5,000 miles and the shock is Toast with no chance of ever completing any hard road or off road rides!
I'm open to any and all suggestions for shock replacement.
I blame Jeff for giving me another option.
Help guys, my 1988 nx won't start. I have head light, horn, (all the etc)work just fine but no spark. I have order a shop manuel but haven't received it just yet. I'm guessing it is a cdi box, or one of the coils. Any suggestions - I am so anxious to ride this bike again. It was running just fine when I stored it last fall. Thanks for all your help. Alice
[FONT="]Sir the coil terminals is prone to corrosion i have that problem before all i did is clean the 2 terminals and spray it with contact cleaner.
So with a sign on like sledrchic and the fact that it was stored since last fall, Do I gather that your in a cold area and snowmobile also? Also try new spark plug. When I bought my Africa Twin got it home after sitting in the garage for only a few days it wouldn't start and had no spark. New plugs and away it went. Good luck..
Is the tach needle moving when you cranking it over?
Yea, how'd you guess I was a snowmobiler? :) I live in north central washington state. I haved tried a new spark plug but still a no go. I have had 2 people tell me the spark is very transparent so it is hard to see when you test it on the outside. I have ordered a service manual and waiting for that. With the manual I should have some number reading to do some testing with a ohm meter. While I am waiting does anybody have a manual they could give me the numbers from? my e-mail is email@example.com Like I stated before the bike ran fine last fall. I had several enjoyable rides in the fall as I had just purchased it in Sept. I am very anxious to get it running so I can get going. Thanks
There is a service manual in PDF (Adobe acrobat) form on the first page of this thread.
Actually, i think it's the first post.
Also, Jeff's got a great tip...
Hit the starter button and watch the tach as the engine cranks over.
If the tach isn't moving at all, it's the CDI....
If the tach 'jumps', and registers RPMs, you should have a spark at the engine spark plug..
a Bright blue hot one!
Did you try hitting it with starter fluid?

I pulled off my spark plug wire cap, and shot this film to show what a
good CDI does on the engine tachometer, on the cluster gauges..
You can see a small 'blip' as the engine turns over...
thanks guys, I'll give the tach test a try. Yes, I have given it a shot of WD40 in the cylinder. I'll have to do this tomorrow as right now I'm headed out the door to watch snowmobile drag racing. My boyfriend races his sled on the 1/4 mile drag strip against other cars and bikes. He has gone just shy of 140 mph. Can't remember the times............ I used to grass drag race but after 10 years my interest changed a bit....now I'm just trying to get my nx to run :) We have a cattle & hay ranch so this time of year is super busy. thanx for you help
Did you drain the carb?
There is a small screw on the bottom of the carb, in the bottom bowl area.
any thing come out?
Fresh gas in the tank?
Wanna drink this pepsi sitting in my car since last Aug? mmmmmmmm
NGK cr9 eh-9 (stock range) cr8 eh-9 hotter
Autolite 4302 4303 (one range hotter)
Are all the connections clean and tight?
plug in harnesses, terminals, plugs, and tabs in the ignition circuit.
Check for dirt, rust, water, or just being loose.
Check continuity in the clutch switch, kickstand switch, and neutral indicator circuit.
Does the tach move?
It's hard to see, the starter is around 350 rpm...so it registers, but observe closely.
