Honda NX650 Dominator resource page

(As inspired by the KLR650 FAQ by Chris Krok)

Last update: 24 April 2011

The information on this page is a compilation of independent elbow grease research by numerous NX650 owners around the world, with citations and attributions provided when possible. In the event that I am unable to find the original writer, I will provide a link to the source of which I obtained the information from.

First things first

This is intended to be a resource page, not so much a Frequently Asked Questions page nor a Service Manual (1988 – 1989) (1991) nor an Owners Manual (1991). If that ever changes, it will be updated and reflected here accordingly.

Please do not contact me asking for help with repairs or advice; whatever I have listed here is the limit of my knowledge on the Honda NX650 Dominator. I am just a curator, not the creator to most of the information on this page.

As this is an ongoing work-in-progress, please feel free to share any other resources that I might have missed out. If there is any information you would like to see on this page, either new or corrected, please feel free to drop me a mail at theguy (at)  and provide me with the details. Do note that my professional work keeps me very busy and I will not be able to respond on an instant basis.

For the record, I own the 1991 model (RD02 chassis).
