Ditto. If you have a good set of ramps, you might find it easier to load into the bed, but otherwise, I wouldn't hesitate to put an NX on a hitch on a small pickup.

$800 is an amazing price for a good running NX that still has the plastics!

I paid $1300 for mine in similar condition and more miles and had to beat a bunch of other people to the sellers house the night the listing was put up.

Hmmm, my '89 with the extra drag of top case and Pelican/Caribou 36L top-loader saddlebags will redline in top gear all day long with stock gearing - about 97mph.

Thats good going, but whats your oil consumption like at that speed?
I know mine will start drinking oil if it's held WOT like that.
BTW I have stock 15/45 as well and it's willing all the way but it just doesn't feel right to me to subject the engine to that kind of revs willing or not it just seems to me to lack mechanical sympathy.
Then again what do I know, maybe some have sat at 90 all their lives and never had any problems.

I don't know as I don't run it like that except for a couple of times. I'm too cheap to pay the fuel.

i take it with bikes, gearing is front/rear sprocket teeth ratio? like i said im a super newb. i have a slightly modified tacoma which i had re-geared; thats all in the front/rear diffs tho.

Yep you have it exactly. 15 is front sprocket, 45 is rear sprocket.

Not a traditional one. There's a plastic tube that goes around the shock shaft (inside the spring) to protect the shaft. That's about all it has.

oil

Hi there !

I just brought a nice looking RD02/B for about $1500 so I am newbie.
I have a question for You guys : In case of good working engine, should I expect any oil consumption for this model, or just nothing ?
