    Does anyone else ride the NX where its cold ? Just wondering if anyone has the same problem I have. Whenever the temperature gets below 40 my speedometer stops working.

    I rode mine about 100 miles one day this past winter, it was 9 when I left and 19 when I got back. The speedometer worked great but the forks wouldn't budge. LOL

    hmmmmm,
    that's a totally new one by me.

    Wierd.

    maybe moisture inside the lens/inside the cluster? I really haven't a clue, just guessing.
    but 40 degrees and a 45 mph(speed) wind chill, would that freeze the gears inside the odometer, if they indeed had water in them? :dunno

    I had the same thing happen to me riding it through a small snowstorm when I brought it home. Stuck at about 30MPH. I'm thinking the cable might need to be lubed. Luckily I save the Ural for the real cold weather.

    a little update
    exhaust studs have been ordered
    and heli coils and cobalt drill bits will be put to work as soon as the bolts arrive

    basically i will have to drill out the original studs, and insert heli coils so that i can use the new original bolts
    bummer but at least I am on the road to solution

    pics of the process to come soon

    I have a 1988 nx 250 and am looking for a lugage rack.
    • Will an OEM model from a later model bolt on without modification?
      • Does anyone have an OEM rack that they want to sell?
    • Does anyone have any info on an aftermarket rack that will fit the NX 250?
    All information is appreciated.

    An OEM mount just went for like $260 :loco on Ebay.

    From what I understand the NX doesn't get a lot of love in aftermarket parts. So I'll be fabricating something up here sometime.

    I'm still thinking you can pull this one off. I have the confidence in you :thumb

    I'd love to see the pics, in reference to see how much is left, and how much progress you have made..

    Two other methods of rust destruction....

    Electrolysis: Using a nail, some electrolyte..and a battery charger/tender...electrically seperate the rust from the stud...
    You'll have to do some research on rust removal here with the site search...

    Acids:
    Rust is a base. Acids destroy bases.
    Use naval jelly (phosphoric acid)
    vinegar (acetic acid)
    OJ (citric acid)
    Mag wheel cleaner has the acid in it too...

    Be careful if you try acids, they work on aluminum and steel as well...it's just they work on the oxides (rust) quicker.

    Those price seam to be right. Check eBay too, there has been several parting out on there lately.

    Does anyone have an iridium plug in their NX , and does it make any kind of noticeable difference ?
