    Honda sells an accessory foot shifter for the NC700DCT, not sure about the NC750. I would put one of those on the bike and wire-tie a fake clutch cable to the handlebars.

    The big difference between a C3 and a C3 Pro is the head shape each fits. Pro is for rounder heads, it doesn't mash your cheekbones or chin like the C3 Basic did (I've had both).

    You guys might not be aware of this, but gear oil viscosity ratings are not the same as engine oil viscosity ratings. A 75-90 wt Gear has similar viscosity of a 30-40 SAE engine oil. If moving to...

    I don't recall the thread but I wouldn't plug the stock tank's vent line under any circumstances. Any fuel remaining in the transfer hose can potentially act exactly like the P trap under your sink....

    I thought the same as you did....most of the bars I saw offered little in the way of protection and appeared to me more cosmetic than functional. A great place to mount lights or highway pegs ;-)
