Fred from Derry, New Hampshire here. I had asked earlier for feeedback about a NX 125 I'm looking at. Thanks for your feedback then. I'm still waiting for the snow to melt here before I can look at it.

I have a new question today for my world-wide fellow fans of the Honda single OHV 4-strokes: Does anybody know if the NX 125 engine, which is limited to an electric start, is interchangeable with other 125 or 100 CFR, XL or SL's (yeah, I know SL 100 or 125 engines are rare these days)?

The NX's electric leg (starter, no kick start) may drive me batty and/or I may want to go bare bones rat dirt bike (think battery eliminator) with it. There is always the bump start method, but that cardiovascular work out gets old.


PS The NX in the pix is just for reference and isn't the one I'm looking at. That one is painted black and needs at least an new *carbie.

Carbie? Just wordy Fred in Derry, NH trying to sound Australian.
