Ok guys, here is the deal. I just got off the phone with Tom at Works Performance. We set it up so that you guys can call in and give him all your specs and payment information. This way we can avoid Paypal fees.
Just tell him that you are with The Quad Shop group buy, he already knows the deal.

His extenion is #21 and the number is 818-701-1010. This needs to be done pretty quickly so every one can get their shocks in a timely manner.

Mine is in! Thanks Jeff. 70% offroad/30% onroad.

Does anyone know of any plastic fuel tanks that may fit our bike? Or any other plastics side panels that may fit?

I need some input from you guys...

RacingWoody's !beautiful! f650-NX2 work up has inspired me to work on my own NX, and 'liven it' up just a bit...

I don't really care that much for my own personal preference, but i thought i would throw it out to you guys to help steer me to the

"Sochiro Zone"

Here's my ideas for now...click the pic to enlarge...
from top, descending

1.NX250 Repsol
(works nice with OEM blue)
2.New TransAlp theme
3.NXAfricaUno
4.XLm Paris Dakar(bottom outside)
5.Classic Honda black and red(center bottom)

I've got a ton of body work and prep before i ever get to the painting...

Does anyone have a good way to 'repair' the tabs that interlock the cowls together?


I was planning to use fiberglass mat, and some resin to try to fabricate new ones... on my existing cowls, where they originally should have been..

So i'm a month or so of actual prep before i need to decide on actual
livery....
I just thought it would be fun to see what you guys think...

I'm leaning towards the CBR125R Repsol look(easiest) or the AfricaTwin look...
I like the whites reds, and blues...

6. Mask anything not to be painted.
7. Use 500 deg. F high temp. paint.
8. If you use High Gloss it will stay High Gloss.
9. You can use rubbing compound to really make it shine. (Wait a week)

Painting is all in the preparation.
Spay it thin. Heavy coats look bad (can orange peel) and will paint the engine shut making any future disassembly difficult.

See my Yamaha XS650 engine in High Gloss Black after assembly.
Thank's for the paint prep Sir one more question should i use primer first or go straight with color. also i'm planing to use spray paint from cans.

Mine came with the tabs broken off, held together with high tech zip ties which I was forced to replace
Crappy first photo, sorry.

So the other day, I was reading up on what cool things you guys were doing, when I get a knock at my door. I open it, and there is a guy from upstairs and he doesn't look happy. "I think I knocked over your bike," he says. I think, damn, I left like 7 or 8 feet between your pickup truck, and my bike, and it was right in front of our building, so you should have seen it when you walked out the door...

Well we get out there, and yes, the NX is on it's side, looking broken... *Sorry, I forgot to bring my camera out with me* So I go to pick it up, and the handlebars are jammed all the way over, or so I think, until I remember that I locked them before I went inside. That was a relief, until I unlocked them, and found that they would go to the left all the way, but not to the right.

The guy is apologizing and saying how shitty he feels, how he didn't see it when he backed up, then he heard a bump, and his son said, "Dad, there was a bike behind you."

So anyway, there were a few minor scrapes, on the mirror stem, kick stand, and rear turn signal. No cracked plastics But the whole front headlight assembly had shifted a few inches to the right...

I guess when it fell, it landed directly on the front turn signal, and moved the whole thing. So I moved it up unto the sidewalk, clipped off the old zip ties, and manhandled the whole thing back into position. Luckily I had some zip ties inside, so I grabbed them, and my camera, and went back out to put it back together. It all went back together nicely, maybe still off by a little bit, but it works. I thought it was handling funny so I had the previous owner ride it, and he said everything seemed fine. We poked at it, and checked it out and everything was looking good.

On another note, my headlight never really was perfectly in the hole, always set back just a little bit. Is that normal, or should I try to twist and wiggle it out?
