I have no idea about the NX650's carb diameter, but they are all designated as Keihin VE80 for the '88s. From the outside, they look indentical to the one on the XR650L. I'm not sure you'd gain anything in a straight swap. Look at for ideas on modification.

I installed a Dynojet kit on my NX, along with a modded airbox, K&N, ABP headers and GPR 1-1 exhaust.

Here's a list with Euro NX carb types:

NX650 (N) 1992 VE84D (offen), VE84F (gedrosselt)
