But the XR rim is way too narrow (2.15'') for a 130/70-17 – you need at least a 3.50'' rim. Here is an example of an NSR125 3.50-17 wheel with a 130/70-17 - fits quite well into the swing arm of my AX1 (which is the Japanese Version of the NX250)

Talking Finding the perfect handlebar replacement

Hi guys, I have been looking for a strong alloy and slightly higher handlebar for my lovely '88 AX-1. You know the original comes in steel and I guess previous owners had bent it several times cos it had lots of marks on it. Here's what I found: a Renthal 755-01 mine is gold colour.
It is a road bike type but has exactly the same width with OEM one and more importantly due to higher Rise (appx 2cm higher) and Height (appx 4cm) it gives you a much better off-road experience coz you can now stand on your bike with a normal pusture rather than riding like a monkey

Here's the specs:
Bend: Medium, W:725mm, H:115mm, Rise:85mm, Base:185mm, Sweep:105mm
My own measurements of OEM bar were: W:725, H:60, R:60, Base:200, Sweep 100mm

And the great thing is you don't have to worry about the clutch cable or any other thingy. Because the overall height is a contribution of both Rise and the additional height after the bend the clutch cable gets only 2cm upwars while you get a 4cm total rise on your hands.

Hope this is helpful to you blokes.

There are plenty of these cdis out there, that look the same but they are configured differently inside. I dont think that any of these babies will work on a NX or Ax1 bike.
The only aftermarket cdi that worked for me was one made by SUN Japan and it was pretty expensive. Not by a whole lot, but it wasnt cheap either.
If I remember correctly I had to fork out 80 bucks to get that thing and I still remember that it had the same code printed on the side. Just like the original.
Its been almost two years since then and my bike still works fine and to be honest I think it gave it a small boost at the top range, but I aint 100% on that.
Just sayin

How much to you think the height of the grips went up? How tall are you? I am wondering if this improvement is high enough for me? ..I am 5'10"

As I said about 4 cm rise on the grips...I'm 1.70m - medium size I guess - maybe small in US standards :P

carburator

Hi guys,

today i tried removing the carb, because it needs cleaning.

so after two hours of trying i gave up, I just couldnt seem to get the carb out , there was always some part stuck at the gasket, and i can't imagine the carb fitting through that triangle hole.

Is there somthing really simple I'm missing?

I did open the air cleaner box screws, but it didnt help much.

I undo the two clamps and fuel lines.

Then remove the throttle and choke cables.

Then from the sidestand side of the bike I work the carb left and as far into the intake on the head as it will go.

When it's gone that far I then pop it out at the airbox end.

Takes some stiff enough force, but once done once it's a piece of cake.

The fuel tank should be off to give you clearance and visibility while you work.

Cdi

I went ahead and bought this CDI. I got it in the mail today. And i went to replace it and it was to small to go in the Holding Case. And then when i tried to start the bike it didnt seem like it had enough uff to start but would eventuality start. Its kinda like a stutter. Can you take a look? it says it compatible. But i think they sent me the wrong one.

was your NX running with the original CDI?

have your checked your spark plug gap, or replaced the spark plug?

have you checked the Pulse Generator value?

Is the airway clear? (me and another user here both had something get sucked into the airbox, -mine over the air filter-) and it caused a 'stutter' .. and lack of 'uff'.
