    Using a micrometer set to the desired valve clearance is a more accurate tool to use because the contact points (called: spindle & anvil) more accurately approximate the valve tip & rocker arm...

    I doubt if any of the US-model 700s has the key with chip they use in other countries and I'd assumed the USA-model 750s were the same.

    The worst part of valve adj to me is draining the coolant because there isn't a convenient way to do it. I now use a clean, drain pan so am able to save & reuse most of the coolant and only have to...

    It's certainly not cheaper but I subscribe to F1TV with an annual cost of under $100. It gives me the option of watching it as a live feed or later when I have the time and I usually choose this...

    In some areas of the country, the smallish 3.9 gal fuel tank might be a problem.

    I use a Cortech tailpack for multi-day trips and I've finally figured out how to keep the bag mostly in place...

    ddueling - there is a lot of MSTA activity in FL with an openness towards non-members. There are several categories of "rallies" and some have a fee attached while others are free. A co-op...

    My thought is that ABS & DCT are always combined for ease of production. That way, besides the colors they'll only have bikes with manual trans and other bikes with ABS/DCT.

    Oops, it's clear now that my idea of the linked system always having a 3-pot front caliper fed via two brake hoses is old school and Honda has developed another method to do the same task using a...

    Perhaps the easiest way to determine if your NC has a linked system is to check the front caliper. If it has 3 pistons and 2 bleeder screws it's part of a linked system.

    Pharfar - you stated a brake balance of "70/30" but I don't think you can apply such numbers to a motorcycle that has separate controls for front & rear brakes and perhaps linked system. The brake...

    If I were to do it and I'm not, I'd try to use the parking brake caliper to do the slowing because it would only be used at very low speeds.

    I've thought about this for a different reason on my 2013 DCT model but looking at the left side of the non-standard handlebar, there isn't any room for an additional mount between the grip and the...

    Although I've never made the swap to braided lines on any of my bikes, I'd guess that not much difference could be felt when the bike and its brake hoses are fairly new.

    I would venture a guess that the bleeder screw thread size on the caliper is pretty much the same on all Honda bikes. The last two or three Hondas I've owned appeared to use the exact same bleeder...

    My guess is that in the showroom, the seat slope helps to sell bikes since it makes the seat height more management for some people.

    A 2010 NT700V/w ABS is my other bike.

    It has been a super-reliable workhorse and the odometer now reads close to 75k miles. I installed a shorter shock eye right off the bat because the 31.7"...

    I believe that Corbin glues the cover to the foam so having a new cover installed is not easy. At least it was that way a few years ago.

    I believe the AMA "free towing" that is part of membership has a 25-mile limit, then you have to pay for each mile.
