I put the cooler running plug in mine. Didn't notice much difference just a little peace of mind. The K&N filters have an advantage in that with 2 changes of a stock Honda filter you have it paid for and then just clean it after that. Simple economics. I noticed a little more power with mine but it wasn't much over a new clean paper filter.

Keef, the blue tank is also an Acerbis, 25 liters for the later RD02s. But some idiots tried to paint it, I found 2 layers of blue and if those tank don't want something, it's being painted. I tried to remove the paint, but couldn't do it. Also, the tank gassed out so much you got nauseous sitting on the bike.

So, sadly, I had to look for an alternative. Bigger tanks for the Domi are awefully hard to come by. So I just fabricated new mounts for my old tank.

Re:K&N; like Thor said, it's cheaper in the long run. Also, I wanted to uncork that poor thumper so I did the whole deal (and removed the secondary air system). I didn't ride her before all the mods, so I don't know the difference. But she does feel very crispy now.

ebay

Just a tip- scan ebay UK and ebay worldwide for parts- Honda NX650 Dominator. After $helling out for a rack in the states I found on ebay, one popped up in France for like 8 bucks with no bids.

Hi there,
I still own my 1990 NX650, modifications: Acerbis tank, lowered seat height, steel brake lines, exhaust valves needed to be done after 29000 km, thats it. As I own a KTM now its mostly used to cummute and if my wife likes to take a ride. She loves it, had the same in blue before the kids.
I bought once a crashed NX 650 and kept the parts I thought I may need, still have them, bike is very relliable. I have a Hepco&Becker rack and nice white 33 Liter Hardboxes for it. Enjoy it, its still one of the best bikes of the sixteen I owned...

Anyone got any pictures of soft panniers on their NX650 ?
I have a 95 model and want to sling some soft panniers on , but I'm worried about stuffing the side plastics and the heat from the pipes.
Any suggestions ?

Would you have the stock rack parts? Any pictures or price for the side rack?

Great thread guys
I saw one of these in the parking lot where I work shortly after buying my 610 and still think it's one of the coolest bikes around ( I'm a Transalp fan too ). Hope to see some more pics of these beauties here.

The stock top rack is not with these parts any more, sorry. The side rack holder is a Hepco&Becker, I am going to ask my wife if she would want to sell it, as she does not like them to be mounted its a chance. But would you be interested to pay for shipping from Germany to USA?????, I think that would be prohibitive? Pitty we did not write about this some weeks ago, co-worker just flew over last week with boxes of measuring equipment, that would have solved that problem nicely. We may have other jobs in the US coming up....
They are not mounted on the bike anymore, so sorry no actual pictures of it: You can see a picture of the racks in the pdf installation guide on Hepco&Beckers website http://www.hepco-becker.de/anbauanle...50189.0001.pdf the racks form this Company are bomb proof, they held up nicely loaded with up to 20 kg each even on off-road trips (never tried to jump with so much weight, thou). They have a steel plate to deflect the exhaust gasses and a connection behind the license plate holder from side to side for stability. Let me know what you think!

Good luck with the bike. I still love to run my wifes from time to time, its such a good bike for my style of riding. Pitty Honda lost interest in that market.

NX 650 & heated gear

Does any one have any expierience with heated clothing on early, 1988, NX 650/Dominator? Does it produce enough juice? I would like to wear my Gerbing jacket liner and gloves this winter. Thanks

Keep working on that photo pirate63. Speaking of pirates I just read the original Treasure Island this last weekend. I had bought it for my daughter, she is a pirate fan. Wow that old adventure book still holds up!!!
I may have posted this pic before of my NX on Mt Rainer in Washington state 9-07. But it still makes me happy maybe it will you to. Wolfman bags. (even on the hot days they never came close to melting. They have a binder on top that lets you pull the top of the bag together away from the pipes a little. I also ordered some clear film that installs with water from Areostitch to protect the paint under the bags. I left it on as it is near invisable.

Great photo! What brand/model hand guards do you have mounted. You should re-read Life on the Mississippi.
