    YEAH! That's the one I was looking for. My recall has been severely affected by my accident in November. That's the photo/thread I was looking for, but I lost all of my mental details about it. I just knew that someone had done something along those lines.

    Now, to find that photo...

    I had stumbled across that side scoop by accident, I can't even remember a keyword for it, If I recall, there were maybe two pics posted by a inmate, on a topic that wasn't relevant to the 'scoops'. I'll hunt too

    I've got a set of templates coming my way. As soon as I get them, I'll get them scanned in and made available as a .PDF, .DXF, or even a solid model if there's a need.

    Sorry, guys. I know this has been covered before.

    I am starting an install of the Tusk heated grips, and at the same time I will install the Tusk hand guard kit. (I have the Easton Pro Taper handlebars.) Please help me with the heated grips.

    I have removed the old rubber grips, and cleaned the old contact cement residue from the accelerator side (cleaned up the clear plastic housing). I have yet to decide where to install the power switch, but I have the "Conehead" fairing from Older Slower Guy, and there is plenty of dry space in the cavity between the fairing and the instrument cluster.

    1. On the clutch side, didn't somebody say I should insulate between the handlebars (steel) and the heating element? If so, how should I do this?

    2. On the accelerator side, I should twist the throttle all the way (counterclockwise), to find the best place for the wires, correct?

    3. For both sides, the wiring should run down the backside (most forward side) of the bars? Is there a "correct" or "incorrect" location for the wires?

    4. The two heating elements are to be tied together, and then grounded. Is there a recommended place to do this, or tie into an existing ground wire?

    5. The power wire from the switch needs to be connected to some source: Should I tie directly into the positive terminal on the battery (run a wire all that way), or should I tap into another wire in front of the bike? Which one?

    Any other advice for the heated grips or the hand guard installation would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    My answer to #5. I would run a relay and switch it with the ignition. I would hate to have to remember to turn off the grips every time.

    It did almost seize on us. Poor quality control.

    Hahahahahahaha Your timing couldn't be any better

    And once again I prove that I have the maturity level of an 17 year old. Coming home from a friends house I thought I would work on my wheelie skills or lack there of... Looped out somewhere near the top of second gear. I had my foot covering the rear brake but it happened so fast the first thing I knew was I was sliding on my butt watching my bike slide away from me.

    Good thing I got the case protector.

    That's a crack in the exhaust where it meets the muffler.

    For some reason this hand guard takes all of the abuse.

    Did I mention I had my rifle strapped to the side.

    Who says jeans aren't good enough to ride in. :rofl

    My boot has a new hole in it.

    Got a small burn through my jacket.

    [​IMG]


    The foot is swelling up. Not where the hole in the boot is at though.

    Doctor Daniels is taking care of me and promises a full recoverry from the injury but the stupidity that caused it is likely a lifelong condition that I'll just have to deal with.:rofl

    Hi guys!

    I'm 1993 NX650 owner, and I'm rebuilding the engine.

    The thing is, that I need a M3 gear for my bike, as the one I have has little damage to it: https://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/12...0/802/pkcv.jpg

    Just to explain the situation: 1988-1990 NX650's transmission is the same as for all XR650L. Post 1990 NX650's transmission has four different gears than XR650L (including the M3 gear I need).

    Here is a picture of transmission: http://images.cmsnl.com/img/partsli...gland-transmission_bigecanweae__1600_c8a2.gif

    M3 gear is #10, both #12 and #14 are the same on all bikes, different is #11 - C3 gear. The thing is that on all the bikes M3 gear has 20 teeth, and C3 25 teeth, so ratios also should be the same. As shafts are the same, both gears next to M3 also are the same, count of teeth is the same for M3 and C3, I can't imagine anything beeing different from XR650L to post 90' NX's, thats why I'm asking for help guys!!!

    Maybe someone has M3 gear of an XR650L laying around, and maybe even for sale. I'm from Latvia, so international (USPS) shipping would be required.

    P.S. First of all I should understand from pictures what really is the difference, and if there is no major differences I could buy one for good price :)

    Thanks alot guys!!!
