    I was going to record a video today of how easy it is to set the $20 Go Cruise and how well it works but it would be lost on those that don't understand the benefits of how it works compared to a...

    Yes, we did this with a 2018 DCT when I worked at the dealership. The brakes aren't linked front to rear, rear to front, or at all. This is an old topic rehashed. Who knows why Honda doesn't change...

    Post #16 by 670cc, only 2012-2013 ABS bikes had linked brakes with the three piston front caliper. Linked brakes did not appear on 2014 and later bikes.

    I've had among the best throttle locks, BMW and Throttlemeister, and they create vacuum compared to the simple $20 Go Cruise because the latter works by setting a minimum speed without any fiddling....

    GoCruise 2 is a bit of a pain to set.

    GoCruise (1) is not a pain to use, works great.

    Thank you for this review I had a Corbin on a BMW for 40,000 miles some years ago and it was very comfortable though as hard as a park bench. It's all in the shape and how it eliminates hot spots or...

    The thing with boats and motorcycles is that they are never done, at least for me. I see things other people have done and get ideas.

    The NC700 New Concept bikes were designed in response to the challenging economic conditions of the Great Recession. A lot of stuff changed when the US and the world economies...

    I have no idea how you ride and the terrain but experience is the best indicator of fuel range. The tank is good for at least 3.6 gallons and the NC gets conservatively 60 mpg at highway speeds (Not...

    There is more to it than just the spring rate. The NC's springs are too soft for many riders, IMHO more than 170 lbs, but the basic design of the fork has too much damping so when riders of all...

    No, I meant that there is small change in observed error over the life of the rear tire, not the difference changing between speedometer and odometer over time.

    There are character bikes and there are character bikes. I can’t imagine owning a 1952 East German copy of a prewar BMW in this century. BTW, the tool kit includes three brass hammers. One for frame...

    Like MZ5 posted, it could vary between bikes.

    I will say that my 2012 manual and 2015 DCT had just about the same set of errors - the speedo was off about 1 percent (essentially spot on until...

    These plugs are far above the oil level in the sump and probably have no oil standing in them when the engine is off.

    Oil in the two passageways force engagement and disengagement of the clutch...

    I couldn't find anything in the service manual showing exactly why those plugs are there. I think the oil passages that they seal off must be drilled and machined from the outside and the holes are...

    I’m sure the need for an accurate speedometer outweighs an accurate odometer but it’s worth mentioning an electronic calibrator will change the odometer reading by the same correction factor and the...

    In my opinion for performance riding the stock springs are inadequate for any rider over ~160 lbs. Preload does not affect spring rate, or "stiffen" the forks. It only affects ride height. I can't...
