    Clutch adjusting rubber cover

    Was just adjusting my clutch and noticed there was no rubber boot covering the adjusting mechanism.
    Is mine missing or is this normal and the factory decided this model doesn't need one.

    I assume you mean at the Handlebar, and not down at the engine area......there are two ways to adjust the cable slack. I don't see one on the parts microfiche at the handlebar level.......for the NT nor NC......my 2012 NC does not have one (but wish it did now). But someone else needs to double-check me.

    This item might be something we can "retro-fit" from another Honda model......maybe a dual purpose model??

    There’s no boot on my 2012’s clutch adjuster on either end. It probably saved Honda a dime leaving it off.

    I also checked the dealer parts catalogue and didn't see one available for the NC. I noticed after making the adjustment that the slot in my adjuster was up. This could lead to water in the cable when riding in rain and worse for a bike that was parked outside for extended periods. Remembered my 80 Honda 750 K had a boot and checked the parts catalogue. Cost around $14 + shipping. I re-adjusted the clutch to make sure the slot was facing down for now.

    CRF250/450 and XR650's have em.........not more than $5-$6 each.........I bet other Honda dirt bikes have em too, cheaply......and would probably fit.

    My 2015 doesn't have a rubber boot.... Or an adjuster.... Or a clutch lever.... Or a clutch cable.... I don't think I can be of any help in this situation... ;-).
    I may be getting older, but I refuse to grow up.

    I found a Yamaha one that fitted just great. Here's a pic of it on my 2016 NC750X:-

    I looked on my 2008 Vstrom 650, it has a much better design of the rubber boot......covers the opening when the clutch is pulled in as well........and appears to be cheaper. I have mine installed with Chinese Pazzio knock-off shorty levers.
