    Need Help DCT acting weird

    Sorry to say, but chatting here in the forum will not help you much. What you need is an experienced, knowledgeable technician in an Honda authorized dealer workshop with Honda approved testing equipment. What happens to your NC is quite uncommon.

    Dealer claims it has a broken timing chain. I doubt it.

    I don't think so. The metal shavings most likely come from the cylinder rings and bearings, which is quite normal. This missing spring hook is too large to get in between moving parts. And it's too small and light to be broken into smaller pieces. In addition, the oil acts as a cushion. So if it...

    Dealer claims it has a broken timing chain. I doubt it.

    Is the spring hook on one side broken off? Check the oil pan drain plug.

    Dealer claims it has a broken timing chain. I doubt it.

    You know it's not missing. It's there and you have to find it. You can't risk a loose spring in the engine. If it hasn't fallen into the oil pan, you can try to fish it out with a magnetic pick-up tool. Good luck.

    Ignition Switch

    I think that 20-30A / 12VDC switch should be enough.

    Electrical wire ID needed

    Because non-US models use a switch assembly with fewer internal connectors and wires.

    Electrical wire ID needed

    This is based on a non-US Service Manual, but the location of the connector is probably the same.

    Electrical wire ID needed

    Help me understand what you are trying to do. Do you want to use the hazard switch to control your aux driving lights? That way you decide to eliminate hazard lights function? Are you going to power the aux lights directly or via a relay? Remember that illumination, stop and horn circuits are...

    Electrical wire ID needed

    These wiring diagrams are from U.S. 2015 CTX700 (DCT on the right), which were practically the same as for NC700. Whether there have been changes in later models, I do not know.

    Need Help DCT acting weird

    No, this is not "normal". Clutch must be disengaged at idle RPM. Just like in a simple CVT transmission (small scooters mostly), where the pulleys/clutch engagement/disengagement is mechanical, depending on the engine's RPM, in this DCT transmission the clutch engagement/disengagement is...

    Need Help DCT acting weird

    Could they measure engine speed at such a moment? This is important for diagnosing the problem. In this way they could determine if the problem is faulty throttle operation or a problem with the clutch linear solenoid valve or clutch oil pressure. The clutch is still engaged. The clutch should...

    Over loading electrical system

    As the 670cc said, at higher engine RPMs, the alternator generates enough energy to power an additional 150 W load. The problem begins at idle speed. All battery charging systems are designed to be able to, with the engine at idle, provide power to the system and charge the battery, with a...

    Need Help DCT acting weird

    This can happen if the engine idle speed is too high. Have you not noticed a deviation in engine idle speed? Check correct throttle operation, PGM-FI. This is important for proper DCT clutch operation. Also faulty operation of DCT clutch engagement is possible.

    Need Help DCT acting weird

    Please, do not confuse unnecessarily. When the engine is running, the alternator provides 100% electricity. The battery is being charged during this time, so it cannot affect the operation of DCT or other electrical components.

    Won't start and it ain't the battery

    If you see a little flicker, then the fuse is good. It could be a very bad connection or there is little energy left in the battery. Because you are sure of your battery so look for bad contact.

    Adjusting chain tension with side stand vs. center stand?

    First you say that you have a proven, universal advice on how to set a chain slack on any motorcycle, without exception. Now you say that these are your preferences and that Honda's instructions are worthless. That is the end of this discussion.

    Adjusting chain tension with side stand vs. center stand?

    But that's exactly what you do (13.5 - 20mm slack) - adjusting the chain "too tight", judging by the opinions of many experienced NC riders (I have very little road experience). Your choice...

    Adjusting chain tension with side stand vs. center stand?

    Now, your corrected diagram still does not match the actual chain slack recommended by Honda (it should be around 4%-5%). But we also don't know how this "universal advice" would match other motorcycle models. So it's probably better to stick to the manufacturer's recommendations.

    Adjusting chain tension with side stand vs. center stand?

    This is what your diagrams show - when the centers of rotation of sprockets and the pivot point of swing arm are in one line.
