    32,000 mile oil report

    Stock bike, stock filter. Has been changed at 12k and 24k. Also Maxima 10w-40 has been run since break in. I also wonder how 10w-30 would break down but here in hot *** Florida I'm not interested in a thinner oil.

    32,000 mile oil report

    K&N it's whole life. By the way I took my dad's spot at BMW if your ever around come by. I saw someone you know, can't remember his name but he has a r1200gs, said he rides with you, nice guy.

    32,000 mile oil report

    32,000 mile oil report from blackstone labs. I read this earlier and couldn't for the life of me figure out why I have silicon in my oil. It just hit me as I read it again that I did the water pump at that service where I re filled that sample of oil and I used a little rtv silicon on the o...

    Iron butt questions

    Ya it does scare me how many people there could be. Like I said I learned long ago when I first started doing track days that many people talk, only some people do. Even if so, I think a strict be there or be left behind rule should be in place to follow a time schedule. May make someone mad but...

    Iron butt questions

    So I am doing an iron butt 1000 next month and have some questions for the experienced riders that have done one before (no matter what bike not NC questions). First thing we have what could be 5-10 riders going, we will see how many walk the walk when the time comes but is that too many? I...

    Look what I found in a coolant hose

    I did the 5th service (32,000 mile) a couple of weeks ago and I am still getting paint flakes out of mine. I got almost 100% of the paint out of the necks of the radiator this last time as they were badly flaked. No running issues from it though, just get the loose stuff out when you do the...

    Question re Honda OEM Sidecases

    I bought my oem luggage used and the seller and I agreed that I would cut my tail section so he didn't have to send me his. You could swap with the person if you trust them but I don't think the cuts stand out if the luggage isn't on. Other than that just make sure all the hardware is there...

    Crank Case breather tube???

    32,000 miles and I have never had a drop of fluid in my breather tube.... Sounds like too much k&n filter oil like 670 said. Edit: all the breather does is collect moisture that enters the air box, my old nighthawk used to get a lot of moisture and I would drain it when I did the oil change but...

    What repairs, replacements have been made on your nc700?

    Water pump leak around 24,000 miles. Other than that just reg stuff. Chainssss as in plural because this bike eats them, tires, brake pads, rebuilt front brake master cylinder. Needs a front rotor soon as the pulsing is getting annoying.

    Service warranties

    You can usually get an extended warranty whenever you want, unless you have 80,000 miles on a bike because they do have mileage caps. I recommend that poeple get one when they buy because it gets rolled into the deal so you don't have to front money. But if you missed on that at least try and...

    Service warranties

    Working for a dealership I know Fidelity or also known as JM&A is a good one. The one I can tell you to stay as far away from as possible is Assurant. They are a nightmare, they don't want to cover things and don't want to pay full price for things, leaving the owner responsible for sometimes...

    New Interceptor and Cbr650F

    With that being my first bike I thought it was my poor wheelie skill causing the nut crushing but now that I think of it I haven't had an issue since that bike lol.

    Man you just hit the nail on the head. An 88' Hawk gt was my first bike, I would love to have one again!

    New Interceptor and Cbr650F

    You know a lot of people say that once you ride a liter bike you never go back BUT I think after you ride a liter bike as long as some of us do (more than 1,000 mile a year like some people) you get bored with everything. I found nothing fun anymore, ya the bike was fast but when you ride a...
