    I have been a little busy lately and haven't really been keeping up with the thread. I have an extra carburetor, if you have not ordered what you need already, I will be happy too send you mine free of charge. I have been helped out in a pinch before by someone really cool on this thread and would like to pay it forward so to speak. PM if you are interested.

    Project NXT250 is officially underway. I've got really big plans for this little guy. I've decided to try and build me Street Tracker. Don't know how this will come out so let's keep our fingers crossed!!

    A while back I got one of those South American windshields from oldmanaz, and he asked me to post some pictures of it after I got it mounted. Here is how it turned out:
    I got some of those rubber nutserts from the hardware store and mounted them through the plastic of the fairing. I had to use some 1.5" screws at the top with some rubber hose spacers to get the windshield at an angle where the plastic hand protectors would not hit it at full lock. I used some little grommets through each of the four holes that came in the windshield. It was pretty easy, I took a ride this afternoon and am real pleased at how it works. I think it is a good product.

    Does anyone here know, or have they tried to use a seat cover off of a XR 400? If the dimensions are pretty close I don't see why it would not work. There are a ton of options out there for the old XR! Not so much with the NX though. LOL!

    The wife named it: "The Velvet Tiger." The only thing more fun than driving it myself is having her drive it and me sitting alongside in the passenger seat watching guys cruising alongside & taking pictures of the Blonde Granny driving the NSX!

    It looks like there is a small space between the shield, and instrument plastic. When I adapted an old National Cycle clamp-on shield to my KLR650, it has a space between it, and the OEM shield.( still in place ) It works great adding a small amount of back pressure to deflect wind up over my helmet.
    I can ride with my face shield up at speeds above 60 mph.

    I just installed an LED headlight and tail light, so the battery will charge faster. Not has much of a problem now that I know how to start the bike, never would have guessed the carb had an accelerator pump. Anyway, thinking of upgrading the regulator to something other than the shunt style, gonna try a PWM battery charge controller. The LED headlight has a heatsink that unscrews and can be reversed to fit the small space ahead of the stem. I measured 1.5A draw on high and low beam, 20W vs. 55W/60W halogen. Brightness seems equivalent but I never did any driving at night with the halogen. Now to find some additional lights like Larry's. If interested in headlight lamp, it was about $50 for set of two: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-x-Philips...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    Thanks for the offer but I just got in a new carb. For $100 it was a better deal than a new pump kit. It was a California model so if anyone needs the emission hampered top hat I can send it to them.

    Also while tuning the carb back I had to bend the accelerator pump adjustment arm so much that it has the rod depressed .5mm instead of the .5mm gap to keep the bike from bogging out. Does anyone else run such an aggressive setting? Just curious because the bike ran fine at the stock setting before.

    That is exactly how I run mine.

    Seems like that would reduce the accel pump action, since you are reducing its stroke by .5mm, no?

    fify?

    sounds like this bike is running lean, and by engaging the pump, the NX is finally getting enough fuel?

    lean bog vs. rich bog....?

    ?? The pump diaphragm only puts out fuel when it is moving, and the farther it moves the more output it has. So reducing its travel reduces its output. Highest output would come from having zero gap between throttle crank and pump rod, not negative gap.

    exactly, agreed Bill.

    The pump diaphragm DOES put out fuel, when the rod moves.(He pre-loaded movement on the rod, with throttle closed?)
    The farther it moves, the more output it has.(true)
    So, reducing it's travel reduces it's output...(He didn't REDUCE travel, he engaged it? yes/no)
    Highest output come from having zero gap between throttle cranks and pump rod not negative gap....(this confused me. negative gap=.5mm pre-load? yes/no)

    He did not reduce the amount the rod can travel, he induced travel .5mm (activating enrichment) with 'negative gap'...(preloaded?)


    Either I'm confused, we're saying the same thing, or I'm not being clear.....


    He said the AP rod was depressed .5mm, adding fuel....? Adding fuel curing a bog means bike was lean?





    ****
    I did not mean you were wrong with your explanation....I agree with it....I was merely trying to re-phrase your reply with more concise terminology.




    If depressing the rod does not activate the enrichment...I'm ready for a weekend beer.





    When you said, 'seems like that would reduce the pump action'.....I think that is the mickey......Think about it.

    .5mm gap= no added fuel
    .0mm gap=no added fuel
    (depressing the rod).5mm ADDS fuel?

    Heck, if there is beer needed, it's on me this time..
