Kingsport is a easy drive here! I just posted it, details can be found in the FM. Thanks,
I have been looking and can't find it. Can you send me a link?
My NX is has sold to a fine gentleman. Soon I will be posting a large list of used and NOS parts for a NX in the flea market
On to the 30th season with my dommie In the background my CB450K black bomber with 88 NX650 motor https://advrider.com/f/threads/cb650k-black-bomber-with-nx650-engine.1487915/#post-42052414

This one went up for auction this morning:
Current bid $775... I wonder how high it will go? At a glance in the distant pictures it looks to be in pristine shape. When you get a chance to see the different components close up you see how there are scratches everywhere and rust.
FWIW, it appears to have a steel braided brake line, changed handle bar, missing seat strap, and fork reflectors. I think the rear chain ring has also been changed to one much smaller than the original.
Anybody know a source for the connector between the carbie and the airbox (no. 20 on parts diagrams)? Mine has split and they seem NA on the searches I've done.
Is the same part for an XR 650L compatible?
I guess he did not talk about the manifold but the hose to the airbox (nr20). That part is indeed sold out. The XR650L has a different airbox/hose.
Yep, my mistake. I am wondering if no 16 on this parts list for later models can be adapted ?
yes it is the no. 20 on the diagram above that I am looking for. looks like i'll have to repair the one i have.
I'm new to the forum and have recently bought a nx650 that has been part way converted to a flat tracker / scrambler.
The forum has already been a source of great advice and inspiration, and now I'm looking for some collective wisdom. I have completely stripped the bike back to the frame in prep for powder coating and have found that the previous owner has moved the head breather pipe that connects to the oil tank in the frame.
The new pipe has a very small diameter and has been sealed in place with epoxy. The old position is welded over and also sealed. He did this to fit a CG125 tank - note the welded on threaded lug, which is a tank mount. The small pipe has got to go - as does the epoxy!
Here are the questions: I'm considering reinstating the breather tube (drilling and brazing a new pipe in place); however, I have seen some other conversions that have moved the position elsewhere on the oil tank to help fit a new petrol tank. Does anyone know what other positions work? Does the breather pipe just need to go into the top of the oil tank above the resting oil level as indicated by the dip stick?
Any help is gratefully received. The Dommie is a 1989 bike. Thanks
welcome to the club.
The breather pipe (überlaufstutzen) should be a bit above max oil level (ölstand max)
The frame is made of very thin sheet metal with reinforcements inside - maybe the filler neck (thicker steel) would be a good place for the breather pipe. This way you could also enlarge the oil capacity a bit.
Thank you so much. That is incredibly helpful and the picture is brilliant!
I was wondering what the inside of the oil tank looked like. I think the original position is likely to be the best but I can see that higher up is also an option. Much appreciated Scrambler66.
Hi everyone, might be joining this club very soon! Going to check this one out this week. Don't have any experience with working on motorcycles yet but I wanna learn to customize bikes, so I like that this one already has the scrambler look but is not exactly how I want it to look. Should allow me to start doing some modifications without having to start from scratch. Only thing I'm worried a bit about is the drum brake. Have never had a bike with a drum brake but been reading this thread and seems like a lot of people want to get rid of it. Is it really that bad?
It is fine. Don’t worry.
Any suggestions for a front master cylinder sight glass? Mine has disintegrated.
