    2020: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    Who is putting these things on so tight?!?

    Windshield, Axle tools, Shop Manual -- The only item left is the head gasket.

    2016 windscreens won’t fit on a 2014, right? Isn’t that the year they changed the bolt pattern. Otherwise I’d be interested

    OEM Rear Brake Pads

    I switched to the EBC HH pads for the rear and the difference is night and day. The rear brake actually feels like a brake now. Plan on doing the fronts soon.

    OEM Rear Brake Pads

    Appx 5000 miles of use on the pads, still plenty of life left. Came off a 2014 non-abs non-dct NC. $10+shipping

    What is this noise?

    Forgot to mention- this was filmed with the bike on the ground and weight on the front wheel. When I put it on the centerstand and the front wheel is off the ground, there is no more "clunk" noise while turning back and forth, however, the "creaking" is still there.

    What is this noise?

    Bike off, turning from lock to lock produces a “clunk” as it reaches the lock on each side. Additionally, there is a “creaking” noise that is steady throughout the entire turn. It sounds like there coming from two different locations. Turn the sound up on video to hear them

    Setting off in 2nd gear

    Apples to oranges comparison here BUT in many drag racing applications first gear is not used when launching. Why do they not use first?

    Setting off in 2nd gear

    Not lazy at all. 1) Legitimately curious, so I asked a question. 2) It helps get up to speed faster...and you can save your "well the NC never claimed to be fast" comments :rolleyes:

    Setting off in 2nd gear

    Will leaving from a stop in 2nd gear instead of 1st cause any long term damage? I did tonight just to see if it could and the engine didn’t seem to lug or bog.

    The US 2020 NC750X

    Maybe someone from the forum will lend you a garage for a day or two. It’s actually pretty easy to do. Lots of good tips on the reddit plastidip group Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
