    My adventure was stolen again for the second time.

    In Ljubljana-Slovenia.

    Very sad :(

    Very annoying :hair

    I suppose they're just slaughtering spare parts.

    Oh fuck no ...dude...i'm sorry. I'm the guy on YT that asked you for more videos with that bike. That was such a sweet beast... Really sorry to hear you lost it. You have some awesome videos with it :(........FUCK !!!!!!!!!!!

    Could you at least post other pictures you have here? At least it will stay here for a very long time. That bike for me really was top notch. Not a lot like it :(

    Man, I'm very sorry to hear that. :( What is happening with Ljubljana? Is it like that all the time or it's your bike that is so appealing to certain people?
    Wish you to find it again. Good luck, mate!

    Ljubljana is becoming mecca for getting your bike stolen in a minute.
    Police is helpless in a preventive way and there are no proper laws for bike thiefs.

    I am desperate and deeply disappointed.
    My love in which i put so much effort and time into it is driven by RATS now... or even destroyed or even ....
    I hope they hit a wall.

    Found a WP Extreme fork exactly like the on @diskow's unfortunately stolen bike.....
    The fork was from a LC4 but it had some problems with a bolt on the right side that had no internal thread and another that seemd to be raped lol.... Had to leave it although the guy was asking for the fork with clamps, the wheel and the braking pump under 200 dolars..... Too bad, I really am not in the mood and start repairing it right away, with no guarantee of repair.

    I really dont want to be annoying @diskow but would you be kind enough to share what exhaust you had on it?

    I'm gonna leave here @diskow s videos with the bike.

    Got a friend that put RD03 suspension on the NX, the NX is a great bike but lacks suspension. If you can get a DR650 fork on there and eventually a different shock its gonna be a completely different bike.

    my NX250 has a suzi shock and CR fork springs. I think you're thinking of the NX650. I do have an NX650 with XR650L forks, Suzuki Bandit shock, and a few other off-road mods. makes it decently capable off-road.

    I was talking about the 250, regarding the suspension lack, thats only what I heard from a friend.

    yeah. originally it was really not much good for off-road. along with the mentioned mods I also changed to XL350R 17/21 wheels to get real tires. pretty dcent trail bike now. and fair power for a 250 at 26 hp.

    I know all the modifications that need to be done, but thanks for the heads up ;). How is the fork that I posted before not the same one? It's a WP Extreme 50 mm, exactly the one on @diskow 's bike. Of course you have to get other springs and whatever.
