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

    Thanks! My girlfriend just got her motorcycle licence so the NC is being loaned out to her while I ride the AT. I just can't sell my baby, 35,000 miles and too many great memories!

    Inexpensive slip on that is not junk, does it exist?

    There's no real performance to be gained by replacing the stock exhaust. Honda tuned it well for a budget bike. So you want a different sound then? Try one of these: https://www.amazon.com/Radiant-Cycles-Exhaust-Motorcycle-2012-2018/dp/B075Y3N2VD with one of these...

    How to reset the PGM-FI / MIL light from a safety fault?

    Yah who knows, it actually 'errored' when it tried to remove the code (cause maybe there aren't any real ones?) but the MIL light went off when I did. The only other tool I've seen (but can't verify) is little black boxes like this...

    How to reset the PGM-FI / MIL light from a safety fault?

    I was able to clear the fault for $35 worth of parts from Amazon and learned some things in the process. But first, let me tell you what didn't work: 1. Resetting the ECU with the paperclip-in, ignition on, paperclip-out, paperclip-in method described in the Service Manual. 2. Attempting to...

    How to reset the PGM-FI / MIL light from a safety fault?

    I have read from another thread that it is because it thinks there’s something terribly wrong when the rear wheel moves and the front ABS sensor reports that the front wheel isn’t moving. The kind of fault that can only be cleared with a dealer computer. Might only be an issue with the DCT...

    How to reset the PGM-FI / MIL light from a safety fault?

    Yeah that’s the first thing I tried, paper clip ECU reset method. The light is still on. That little connector is actually an ODB2 port so I bought an adapter and we’ll see what the reader says and if it will allow me to clear it. Stay tuned!

    How to reset the PGM-FI / MIL light from a safety fault?

    Alright so apparently I did a dumb thing and let the rear wheel spin while on the centerstand and now the PGM-FI / MIL light is on and won’t go off. Because it thinks the front tire ABS fell off or something. I was cleaning the chain and rims man! :) Apparently this is a hard fault that doesn’t...

    2016 Coolant Leak :(

    I found the issue! It’s not a coolant issue. The stuff is actually a very light oil not water. The hose that comes from the valve cover was disconnected, and the reatining clip missing. Must have fell off or forgot to reconnect at last valve maintenance. I’ll find a hose clamp tomorrow.

    2016 Coolant Leak :(

    So my 2016 NC700x DCT has got a coolant leak :( Its not gas and it’s not oil and it smells like antifreeze and it’s come if from somewhere near the cooling loop. I first noticed it on the right side but theres wetness on the left side as well. The radiator itself appears dry. So I’m thinking...

    My frunk is locked!

    I locked my ignition key in the frunk about an hour before dark on the southern shore of Lake Superior with no one around except my riding buddy who had a couple of tools. (The universal chinese scooter key (a screwdriver shoved in the lock) does not work, Honda makes some damn fine locks.)...

    Chain life

    So one of the benefits, I think, of putting on a chain that is massively oversized for your bike is that it won't stretch as much. In the 10,000 miles I've had the chain pictured earlier (the 1000 HP rated ThreeD chain) in the thread, it hasn't moved. I had to adjust it once and that was...

    2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    Took the bike out for a winter ride today, first commute of the year. There is still some ice from refrozen melted snow in the morning. I put batteries in the Fobos tire pressure sensors, filled up tires, cleaned and lubed the chain, put some good gas plus seafoam in the tank. Got a new tank...
