[QUOTE=scrambler66;21553687]Yes, it will fit, but pulling the brake lever will be harder in order to get the same brake power. The reason is that the diameter of the Xr master cylinder is larger. The NX650 cylinder (and the NX250) got 11mm (see below). The Xr650 master cylinder has 1/2 inch (12,7mm). And the brake caliper of the XR650 is not identical with the one from the Dominator - its from the XR600.

Thanks, I was just about to order it! I'd rather have it look a little corroded than change the operation for the worse.

Cleaning and painting would be a simple option.

I bought the EBC kit SM6010 for the XR650L /NX650 and the 320mm disc fits fine but the caliper bracket doesn't fit the NX650.
I could buy one for the stock Nissin but I already have a Brembo M/c and caliper off a 97SLR 650 that I want to fit. Of course this makes it difficult and I will have to get a custom extension made to fit the brembo caliper.
By all accounts the brembo are a much better brake then the stock nissin, not surprising because they have 10 more years of development as well.
I'll post some pics when I get home.

Check the relay. Clean and refit.

So I pulled up to a restaurant during my ride today, and went to lock my helmet on the bike, when I discovered my helmet lock is gone! Apparently the bike decided it didn't want to have a helmet lock anymore. Does anyone have any better helmet locks, before I order the OEM one (for $38 plus shipping)?

The lock is listed as the same on the XR650L up until 2003, then apparently it changes for 2004 - on? On the parts diagram it looks like the exact same lock, but the price is $15 cheaper.

You use that? I use a topbox, the helmet would fill with rain at the very least here, plus there are dogs and kids.....

I am looking for progressive fork springs in RD08.
Progressive Suspension 11-1506 for RD02, and also fits the following machines:
1997-1999 BMW F650 Funduro
1999-2007 BMW F650GS
1997-1999 BMW F650ST
1989-1990 HONDA Transalp
2008-2013 KAWASAKI KLR650
1990-1995 SUZUKI DR650S
1990-1995 YAMAHA XT600
1991-1996 YAMAHA XT600E.

What do you think - will approach on NX650V 1997?

Honda original partnumbers different for rd08 (51401-MAN-711) and rd02 (51401-MN9-702), but for example HAGON and Hyperpro makes universal springs rd02/rd08...

I have a blue 1988 nx 650 that I have been sitting on for some time with 6k miles and garage kept... What is the current value of the bike? NADA puts it at $1700 is that about right?

Here is a post from the DR350 thread, but most bikes use a similar circuit. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...ostcount=12666

Under the black clock surround you'll find it directly under the turn signal mount, right behind the CDI.
Its a small black box with a white L shaped plug attached to the bottom.
I disassembled mine and sprayed electrical cleaner into the mechanism.
If its working you should be able to hear it clicking, as it flashes

I bought a turn signal switch for a 650L, because the diagram looked similar enough to work, and because in the owners manual to my bike it said it uses a 9P connector, as with the 650L. Now I get the switch and it doesn't work. Anyone know how I can rig it to work, has this been done before?

In the name of safety, around here the local police departments have a free gun lock, cable padlock give away. Has about a 12 inch padlock, what could be more safe!
