Re: Brake and clutch levers

The thread title mentioned both brake and clutch, presumably as a matching pair. Your riding technique will have an impact (keeping one or two hovering fingers over both sides), as well as the size of your hands, the number of miles you might be doing in one go, and even the thickness of your gloves...

Re: Brake and clutch lev

Surely the span will be down you your reach and comfort whilst riding. How old are you ? How good are the front brakes? How good is your eyesight ? How good is your riding ? How much do you trust your engine rebuild ? The only advice I could give for fitting levers is to look at your last crash and ...

Re: Paddock stand alternative needed

I have front and rear stands but would not use the 'peg' version on anything except the front forks. The rear stand has two 90 degree rubber mounts, with adjustment on each for swingarm width, and the assembly is installed from the rear with its own wheels before turning through about 100 degrees. L...

Re: general question spare parts

Hi Paul and welcome to the forum The answer to your question is yes, and no. The NS has a unique frame for a Honda, and the engine, whilst similar in design/technology to the NS250 and MVX250, does not have much to share with either. Top end replacement is relatively easy, but bottom end is the real...

Re: Footrest rubbers

Post an image or two of the ones that were sent by CSMNL, I also have a Japanese version of the NS here (not all, about 70% of) and I'm almost certain the frame parts are - virtually - identical to the UK one. From memory the major differences come with the clocks, plastics (front mudguard) and indi...

Re: Neutral switch wire

Does this thread help ?

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2844

I will be in the lock up tomorrow morning and if I remember I'll take a couple of images of the frame around the RHS, just in case I left the coils attached when I took the engine out. It was a long time ago though.

Re: Footrest rubbers

They look identical to the VF400 when put side by side (rider and pillion rests), but I would have to take each off and weigh them, though I doubt Honda went for magnesium metalwork for the base of the NS ones.

Re: Another new member (plus help needed)

The Battlax (old style) was always the one to go for (though I did run the VF1000R on Avons for a while)

What other tyre have you used on a 16" that you would consider 'good' ?

Re: VIN Plate

If there isn't a vin plate then there should be no holes, these are added at time of import/registration.

But I will double check the frame here (that has a really dodgy headstock moniker) at the weekend.

Re: Engine mounts

Dont forget earthing issues affecting the ignition system, moreso if the bike has been standing and corrosion has set in.
