There is one in front of the cylinder that attaches to a small metal stay.
On on the side and two on the the headlight surround

Bolts numbers 28 x2, 23 x 1, 24 X 1
There is a kind of plug that fits into a rubber grommet on the tank to hold it in place as well, you can see it on the right side of the diagram.

Has anyone replaced the stock airbox with a bolt-on air filter? If so, what did you use? Any of you test the actual airflow? Any problems with this?

No but I got a BMC filter as a replacement for the stocker which had disintegrated in the 9 years since I last rode the bike.
Very pleased with the materials and construction of the filter.
Not badly priced on Ebay.uk either.

Well that fits the airbox that is no longer there. Therefore it's useless.

Have a look at the BMC site they list lots of clamp on cones that could fit the NX carb.
They are very well made filters comparable or better than K+N

Now it's time to read this thread through.

Difference between US and European Models?

Specially the frame difference if any. And was the frame changed in 91?

It has to do with mounting the centerstand to non US models.

Thanks,

Mike

No major difference in the underside of 88-94 NX 650 bikes, regardless of UK/US/EU/other country of manufacture.

Probably going to crank her down a bit, I am around 220 pounds. Please let me know if you figure any tricks out. Thanks, Bruce.
I used adjusting my preload as an excuse to repaint my exhaust. With the exhaust off I could easily adjust the preload from the right side of the bike using the tool included with the shock and a hammer. The ring would not move by hand, so I had to bang on it for awhile. Be sure not to go more than 10mm of additional preload as stated in the limited instructions included with the shock. I think this is about 5 complete turns of the preload adjuster. I did the maximum and it might be a little bit too much for just me at 200 pounds, but it should be perfect when I have my hard bags and full gear on.

The Hagon shock and some bar risers have made this a completely different bike. I rode it aggressively around town and down some stairs and it seems loads better, I can't wait to get it into the dirt.

I was sure you would have the answer.

Thanks,

Thanks for the info, I tried to turn the ring with the tool by hand ( after loosening the set screw ) and it would not budge. Will try the rubber mallet trick today. Would you mind telling me what brand bar risers you are using? I should get a pair too. Also does anyone know of any bigger foot pegs for the NX? My $1800.00 bike is up to $4000.00 now.... Dont tell the wife!!!

My bike investments (including initial purchase) sum up to more than twice the usual resale value around where I live. So yea, I know how you feel. At least I don't have a missus to hold me accountable for my spendings

Yeah...I have a $1300 NX with $1500 more into it

I put on 2" rox risers. I got the rox instead of standard (cheap) risers because I wanted the extra adjustability. My hand guards had been interfering with my high capacity tank and my fairing. As far as cables go for the 2" risers, you definitely need a longer brake line, so its a good excuse to upgrade to stainless steel. The throttle cables are just long enough, and everything electrical has plenty of slack. The clutch cable has turned out to be too short and I am going to have a to figure out a longer one to use.
