    I've used this simple low budget system to add 1.6 gallons of fuel. The tank is made by Acerbis for dirt bikes and has a fuel cutoff valve on a bottom corner. The aux tank is vented to the atmosphere...

    There’s not really a part number. It’s basically the Moab KLR650 shock on the Cogent Dynamics web site. They custom fit a spring based on your weight.

    IIRC Violet/Red is for optional heated grips on older NC700Xs. Green is always ground.

    Sounds good, like a plan is coming together. Is time a factor, ruling out a return ride north through the Rockies before heading homeward across the plains states?

    It is possible to check and adjust the valves without completely removing the radiator. That is how I did it the first time. I did not want to drain the coolant at 8,000 miles. I posted a DIY how-to...

    Honda excels at making bikes that shed weight as soon as the wheels start turning. The ST1300 weighs 730 lbs but felt like 530 when riding. Contemporary reviews of the VFR1200X often mention this...

    Keep looking and noodling over bikes. I'm sure you will find a resolution that works for you.

    I hope you really enjoy your new bike. I remember how badly I wanted a Crosstourer when they came out in 2010. I still look at Cycle Trader ads now and then for a low mileage DCT but with my current...

    Yes, talking about bikes. In 2018 I sold my '05 Honda ST1300 with 180,000 miles on it. That's not really high mileage in the ST world. There are quite a few over 200k and some over that with 430,000...

    There are so many variables to MPG a tank or three is of not much use when the savings we are discussing are so minute. Just my opinion.

    The NC cuts the fuel off when the throttle is closed. Of course there is engine braking at work then so we can’t just close the throttle and coast w/o engine braking like a manual transmission can.

    12.1 volts is “deader than a door nail”. If the battery is holding 12.1 volts then that’s about 90% discharged. Standing voltage of a fully charged healthy 12 volt battery is 12.8 to 13.1.
