'88 Honda NX 250 starting problem
Posted 16 March 2005 - 12:56 PM
Anyways, i have a 1988 Honda NX 250. Its a 4 stroke, water cooled, 6 spd. I am having some troubles getting it started. My headlight is not turning on. For some saftey reason the bike will not start without the headlight being on. This bike has no kickstart, only pushbutton.
This happened to me before and I took all the plastics off and found a ground wire that was not connected, connected it back up and the headlight worked, at least for a while.
Now its doing it again.
I checked that ground and it is still fine, there are no other loose wires that i can see.
Any of you guys have any experience with this type of bike?

let me know if you want to sell it.

i really dont want to sell it, ive put too much work and $ into restoring it. when i bought it it was bare, no plastics, no lights, heck not even an ignition. i have been working on getting it road worthy and it was running fine until this headlight thing happened.
let me tell you one thing, replacement parts for this bike arent cheap! my local Honda dealer wants 300 bucks per side for the radiator shrouds and 400 for the headlight shroud just one of those is more than i paid for the bike!

when i put the dash together i did not have any bulbs to put into any of the sockets, so i am not sure if the dash lights work or not. i do know that the tail light comes on nice and bright, its just the headlight that does not come on. i have checked the bulb and it is fine. the battery is only about 1 yr old and it has plenty of juice.

ive never seen one for sale

I've found several for sale on the internet and all seem to go for between $1600 and $2400.
I haven't actually rode mine yet, but am really looking forward to it. Of course here in Ontario we have snow right now so it may not happen for a while!

My vison is to put CR85 front fender. Have a 88 XR500 gas tank. 06 CRF250 side plates (dual exhaust), UFO headlight/turnsignal combo, same in rear, trailtech computer, and FMF exhaust for XR100's. (Same pipe od).
Just starting the project, will keep posted. Will try and take some pics as it comes together.
