Good idea on our bikes: Reusable stainless steel oil filter...?


Good idea or bad?

If I had a Windows machine, I'd be tempted to pull the trigger as it claims to cross reference all of Honda's parts amongst all of Honda's machines. Seems like that would be useful when looking for those obscure bits and wondering if part x from something else would work.....

I bought that software a while back, it works great very useful. (BTW guys if you want me to look something up just say so)

"Good idea on our bikes: Reusable stainless steel oil filter...?"

sounds like a good idea to me, I'd use a magnetic drain plug with it.
have you actually found one that fits our bikes?


"Fixed!! ( I prefer rivets anyway)"
I dont think rivets will hold up very long, the chain pins are hardened steel.

Why would a riveted chain not hold up very long? Seems like most larger chains 530 and 6xx series chains are done with rivets and they are designed to handle a lot more power than a 520? I'm not trying to be a smarta$$.. but I don't see why a clip would be better (or worse really).

because the link pins act as a bearing, and are much harder than rivets.
I'm pretty sure the rivets will wear quickly.

Me and the NX went out and about today

It was a beautiful day and the NX wanted to go out for a ride.











Nice day for a ride it was a little cool and the sun was shinning. A little leaf color but it's a little early here it will get better.
We had the first snow in the high mountians yesterday.

starting with fuel off

couple of days ago cranked away with the fuel valve turned off and of course it didn't start. what a gumbo i am, but after turning the fuel valve on it still would'nt start. lots of battery gusto but a short firing only when throttle completely off and quick after starter disengaged. out of curiousity, new bike to me and all, i pulled the plug. mildly damp, not flooded wet, and gapped @ 030. no carbon, looked great. took a long time to start, i fixed a good breakfast and let it sit, only with the throttle untouched by human hands. next morning and every time after fires right up. My question is why? some zombie vapor lock? is this normal? or did I merely flood it for 40 days and nights...?

the bike in question with the real rockydog.

Before and after the intake / exhaust / carb mods my start up procedure is the same:

Cold Engine
Turn petcock to ON
Choke to fully closed position (all the way back)
Check the On / Off engine switch
Push the starter button

After about 10 seconds of running it goes to a rough idle, move the choke half way forward to smooth the idle until ready to ride.

Warm Engine
Same but with out the choke

All ways fires right up. No throttle twisting required or needed! It's a Honda.

Well the brown truck just arrived and left a little something on the porch.

These are the super cheap Sedona tires I just ordered in from Bike Bandit for $68 for the set. These are the CRF150 sizes so, obviously, they're narrower than the TW's but with the nice knobs I think they may be okay. I'd consider ordering a 19 rear for the front next time around just because the 19 front looks so super skinny.

Hoping to get these mounted up this week (but of course the new tubes didn't come in the same box so I'm waiting on those) and will report back on how they do as well as post pics of them mounted up.

Thanks to Jeff@TheQuadShop for posting up pics of his NX with the CRF knobs on and giving me the courage to go ahead and take the plunge!
