    Double checked the manual, it states a 30 lb difference between the clutch non abs vs the DCT version.
    So plus the kickstand, guessing a 40+ lbs difference between the two bikes.

    I thought so too, but already checked tire pressure on both bikes and both bikes seem to have the spring preload on stock setting.

    somehow the DCT bike feels more sluggish

    I bought both with the intention of keeping one.

    maybe so,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I have mentioned earlier that pulling in and letting out the clutch does not effect the ticking sound.

    Well, I gonna get rid of one soon. I don't have the space to keep 3 bikes. I think I will sell the Clutch one. Here's the main thing that disappoints me. The DCT is awesome in traffic (partly...

    I still think my engine ticking is too loud. Sometimes it's hard to diagnose with a youtube video, especially when listening to it on a cellphone.

    Btw, I bought 2 nc700x recently, 1 clutch, 1 dct. The ticking sound is much louder on the clutch bike.

    I will take a video of my dct bike also.

    Ha! Picked up a 2013 NC700X DCT with 6k miles tonight! I was grinning on the ride back home. Love it, easy to ride like my Tmax. And feels way smoother vs the clutch version.

    No, the ticking sound is unrelated to the clutch. I do notice the clutch sound also , which concerns me too.

    Loud ticking sound from Engine area

    Hi all,

    Just picked up a 2015 NC700X with 4000 miles

    I noticed a loud ticking sound at idle.

    I am guessing it's the valves? but sounds quite loud.

    I have read about broken cam chain...

    NC700X is a bit tall for a beginner bike. If you are 5'10" and up, it should be good.

    I think automatics are great for beginners.
    Way safer IMHO.

    I just bought a used 2015 NC700X with 4k miles off craigslist for $4100.

    seems like decent deal.

    but I think this bike is not that desirable in the SF bay area.

    cars have the same issue, no standards.

    I was looking at an used Aprilia Mana 850 also, beautiful bike. But I got nervous reading about the electronic CVT issues.

    Ha! I am on the same path!

    Just sold off my Ninja 300 and bought a NC700X manual and now cruising craigslist for a DCT version.

    But I am still in love with my first bike, a Yamaha Tmax 500cc...
