But now I am wondering, if she was trying to tell me that the $100 was actually for race entry fee.
yeah its a 4hr endurance and 25 bucks and hr

so its 10 bucks for the transponder not 25, you just have to give them a major credit card as collateral

120 is the total for the day so divide that by how many riders ur team has plus alittle extra to help with gas.

Looks like I'm out. Drilled through my oil drain bolt and now I need a new one and not sure it would be in stock locally.

Left too much work for the last minute anyway. Hope to see you guys out there next time.

When I ran the VIN on the engine it came up as a 1984 NX125.

Attached are photos of my bolt/plug. Look familiar? I haven't had time to drop by a dealer yet, but I've been looking on the internet and not finding one like this.

looking at the picture it looks more like a tappet cover than a oil drain plug, but Im not familiar with that motor


I use bikebandit to find part #'s, couldnt find a 84 NX125. The only years they have that motor listed is 88, 89, 90

Yeah, it doesn't look like most drain plugs.

I'm not really sure if it is a tappet cover or what. When you take it off out comes a little wire screen filter inside a spring, and it seems that all your oil drains out. It is located on the bottom left side of the engine.

If I can get away I will swing by a Honda dealer today with it to see if they have one.

Hey - I have your drain plug in stock. Northwest Honda 10102 I-45 N just south of west road.

Yes, it is a tappet adjuster cover but that is what was used on the NX 125 motor as a drain plug p/n 12361-383-000

All you guys that say you can't make it because of safety wire, yada yada yada ... let me be your inspiration. My motor is in pieces on my workbench as I write this, can't start working on it till 8 tonight and I work all day tomorrow. Yup, I'll be there burnin' gas on Sunday provided I didn't miss something putting it back together (lots of opportunity for that!)

Way to call me out. My real excuse is I'm lazy, I'm going to a concert tonight, and I suck at drilling bolts.

That said, maybe I'll swing by NW Honda later today and pick that part up. I'm not giving up either, I might show up tomorrow for the racer's school, and get some opinions on what I can do to get the bike tech-worthy for Sunday. Reckon they will let me take the school on a bike that is not yet safety wired?

No harm intended, should've used one of these

I've had a hella couple of weeks and really need to go race, it is the best therapy I know that is why I'm defying and high water to get there Sunday.

Ask for Mike when you come by

bike has to pass tech so probably not

on drilling the drain plug dont drill all the way thru, just drill on the side
b angle 250

I have seen alot of people drill all there bolts like that to make it easier.

here's a link for tips on drilling and safety wiring

Nice hair doo Mike, Rob is now some kinda Autocad expert making all sorts of drawings and pictures, and as for this drain plug... if you cant get by to pick one up or whatever and still wanna go race, just use some jb weld to close it for now. Of course you will have to spent EXTRA EFFORT cleaning that thing of the oil so the jb weld will stick well, but I would really like to see that motor go and see how it stands up to the other bikes.

I got the plug from Mike (and just drilled it correctly, thank you very much), but based upon Rob's post above I'm concerned that my bike won't pass tech for the racer's school tomorrow if I don't have all the safety wiring done...
