I think this was posted here a while back, but it deserves to get reposted at least once a year.

Just to consolidate some things a few people have already stated here: the JT countershaft sprocket is thinner than the OEM one and it will cause accelerated wear on the countershaft (yes, you should replace it). If you have an '88 NX then you have a 6 spline countershaft so you cannot use the XR650R sprockets, so stick with the OEM one. If you have an '89 or newer NX then you have a 13 spline countershaft and you can use XR650L and XR650R sprockets on it.

I saw this video last month when reading the entire thread. I'm still working on the bodywork and relieved to find no yellow paint.

I wonder what happened to those bikes. It think it would be cool to find one.

Thank you VERY much Pablo. I was just about to order a sprocket for an XR650 to put on my '88. I appreciate the info on the splines.

I spoke with a guy years ago about Honda factory race bikes. I was told that most return to the factory.

A few were given to racers or other team members over the years. If / when those few bikes change hands, there is great effort unleashed by the factory to regain "their property". No idea if this is factual, but it was a good story.

Responce from Hyperpro, March 2013: Thank you for your interest in the Hyperpro springs.
Your email to the factory was forwarded to us at EPM Performance as the US
importer and distributor for Hyperpro products.
Yes, we do have a replacement spring for the OEM rear shock of the NX 650
Dominator.
The part number is SP-HO06 SSB 034 at $ 139.00 in Purple (our standard)
color, or $ 149.00 in Black.

Please call the office in NJ at 732-786-9777 with your order.

Regards

Looks like this



There has been no response to someones question on the spring rate of the stock NX650 rear shock spring.

A SV650 rear unit or just the spring may work as it has for me on the NX250 and NX125.

99-02 SV650 337mm 510# <<<====stock 1st gen

I've searched extensively for that answer and never been able to find it.

Where can I find a front sprocket? I checked partzilla and a few other places and they're saying its obsolete.

I bought my insulator from these in Germany(i live in dk) http://zsf-motorrad.de/ they seem to have all original parts but also expensive, my 1992 dommy sucks btw,120km/h with wind and sun in the back, I think there is something wrong with it, it has cost me close to 1600$ in repairs already, and it has yet to gain my trust :( gonna try to restore it next winter, but I can't figure out if mine is a German downtuned model, does anyone know where I can see it?
nice 90'ies colour eh! Hehe

Any professional susp shop should have a spring tester to determine the rating. Just have them test the old stock shock spring. The rate never changes.
