    nope, not a GP1, not a GP-110 either..

    It was cheap though...Just under $18...

    I'll reveal the answer tonight...

    But yes, the outer two tires ARE K270s...

    look in the closeups, at the mid-shoulder lugs...compared to a K270...there's the only difference i can tell....
    every OTHER lug is quite different from a K270...but the odd lugs are replicant of a K270...

    OK, enough putting this off. Here are photos of the KN filter.

    [​IMG]

    First thing is to use an old filter, and cut out the paper element. Then take the KN and fit it into the old plastic filter frame. Simple as that. It's a little long so it may bow in the middle. I might end up glueing the filter into the frame. There are also two little plastic tabs that stick out on the inside of the frame that need to be trimmed down.

    [​IMG]

    I still need to correct my idle, lube my cables, etc. so I won't have a performance review for a while. However, this KN filter is used on a 1000cc engine in a Moto Guzzi, so I don't see how there would be a problem running it on a 250cc engine.

    I'm thinking about a small set of saddlebags to put on the NX. How much weight can safely be put on that little bitty rear frame?

    I wouldnt worry about the weight of the saddle bags , i had a passenger sitting pretty far back , halfway off of the seat , absolutley no problems. Not to mention that i have lifted the bike off of the ground by grabbing right underneath the luggage rack.

    That makes me feel a little better. I'm planning on fabricating a rear rack and some standoffs for a smaller set of saddlebags.

    Hello Guys I'am from manila and in need of your expert opinions, sudjestions and knowledge.
    I have a 1991 XL250 degree (MD26)

    my starter and gear was lost by the repair shop and since my bike does'nt have a kick starter on it i'am having a hard time jumpstarting the unit every time i'll use it.

    guys do you know other bikes that used the same starter aside from AX-1 and NX-1 since these bikes is very rare in my place. thanks alot.

    from this:

    I enjoyed your illustrations of the XL 250 Degree...I see you have placed alot of work into it, and it's looking quite nice.
    Way to go!

    The index for this thread is Page #1, post #1... where a service manual in PDF form is downloadable for those who have Adobe Acrobat or other PDF reader...

    Shinko 244 Golden Boy DOT dualsport tire 19" x 2.75 $17.86



    However, don't use the 3.00x16" on your rear tire, it's WAY too small. Sorry. Unless, you switch to the 17" XL rim, you only have about 4 models of tire to choose from.

    I think both the Rebel, Nighthawk, and all the CRFs use the same starter as the NX250...

    Anyways, the original Honda part number is 31200-Kw3-018 for an NX250 starter..

    I know this thread is focused on the NX250, but I was wondering if anyone here had any experience with the NX650. I'm having a difficult time finding an air filter for the one I'm trying to get ready to sell, all I've found so far is the K&N filter and I'm trying to avoid spending that much on one.
