    2018 NC750X Stiff Chain Links

    Thanks for that. The pin is badly scored indeed on the pressured side. When I was replacing two chains on my bikes a couple of weeks ago I noted that there is little room for grease when You push the connecting pins through. As such whatever grease is used would need to be of a very high quality...

    Need Help What do you think of my colour choice?

    Yes I agree. Of the examples above I would chose either #1 or #4. Of those two perhaps #1 would be the final choice.

    2018 NC750X Stiff Chain Links

    I would very much like to see a pic of that scored pin with all of the mess cleaned off. From early mileage in ownership of my former NC700X, I was seeing stiff links on the OEM chain. I replaced it at 15,000 kms. Moving on to my current X-Adv I saw exactly the same at around the same early...

    2021: What did you do to/with your NC700/NC750 today?

    In answer to the thread question, "enough to get it in this state". A product of Irish countryside backroads at this time of year. I took it out today for the post service shakedown. Tomorrow it will be washed and put away for a while. Its little brother (CRF) will take over for the remainder...

    Honda US site now showing 2021 CRF300L and Rally

    My concern would be that if I get one, I can transfer the bashplate and shock. I doubt if the carrier can be transferred.

    Honda US site now showing 2021 CRF300L and Rally

    You thinking of getting one ? I will probably get a test ride back to back with my 250 and then consider if it is worth it.

    2021: What did you do to/with your NC700/NC750 today?

    Well today I finally completed the jigsaw that is an ADV750L otherwise known as X-Adv. Tbh I have never had so many bits of a single motorcycle around my shed, mostly consisting of body pieces and trims with all the associated screws, clips and bolts. There were so many of them that I had to...

    Valve adjustment

    Correct me if I am wrong. Years ago I was taught as follows :- Turn the crank forward until You see the intake valves on the cylinder in question open and close. As soon as they close then continuing to turn the crank, look for alignment of the T mark on the slot provided. Check that all four...

    2021 Triumph Tiger 1200 XR [Model Overview]

    I had one of the first models of this bike when it appeared on the market. It was love at first sight and the test ride only served to confirm that. I recall that after the test ride the Wife got off the back and into the shop before me, and without hesitation she said to the salesman "we will...

    A proper Chain guard

    First of all that guard won't fit the 750X because it is on a completely different swingarm. The two attached show the coverage. I suspect that the Rossocromo item that I linked to You above, might have similar coverage although I would ask to see a photo taken from behind. I will mention that...

    A proper Chain guard

    The X-Adv has a very good chain guard as original equipment. It is probably one of the best I have ever had on a modern bike as OE. It probably doesn't protect the chain any more than any other (lesser) chain guard. However what it does do is protect the rear of the bike from chain lube mess...
