did you have a wiring diagram for both? outa curiosity did most of the wire colors match?


I downloaded free pdf honda manuals and printed the entire nh125 manual a couple years ago. Here's a link to the manuals, they even have a ruckus one: http://hondaspree.net/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=11

Most the wires were the same colors, a few had to be figured out. Only popped a couple fuses testing things, once I had a grasp of what needed to be done the wiring went smoothly.

Had to get a longer rear brake cable, first one I ordered was longer than advertised. Second cable fit but metal collar at the end broke after pulling the hand lever couple of times. Hope this third cable is the winner...

I just wish the panels were in better condition. I need to fix a few cracks, otherwise the blue lights would shine through all the cracks. :lol: :P

I switched out exhaust from my spree nh125 to the aero, it scrapes the pavement when making sharp right hand turns because the spree sits a little lower. It shouldn't be a problem on the aero and the blue silencer even matches, I guess that means I'll have to make a new exhaust for the spree.

Had a little issue getting the exhaust flange sealed so I ordered a new gasket and this is what they sent me, less than half the thickness of a honda brand gasket. I sent this comparison pic and tried to explain it to the seller, all they said was "The gaskets seals on contact and does not have to compress like the OEM."

PSA: Do not buy gaskets from ebay seller: jaquishmotorsports , he list honda part numbers but sells aftermarket garbage gaskets.

Upgrading to a metro front rim with a elite brake hub. The wheel uses a bigger 90/90 tire and the brake is also bigger.

Purchased some tune up parts: belt, rollers, spark plug, brake pads and a spare variator that I cleaned the grease out.

Taking apart the drive face, It's over a 30 year old engine and this might be the first time it's been serviced. The belt was pretty cracked, pulleys a little grooved, clutch pads look a little low.

I've been thinking about upgrading the variator and clutch but nobody makes performance parts for the nh125. I've done thing in the past like lighter rollers, lightened the clutch bell, using jog clutch springs. But I would like to do more to improve performance. I've taken a few measurements with my dial caliper and I might take a gamble on running a performance variator and clutch off a different model engine...
