    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...

    670 - good to know the CTX cables will work on the NC! thanks.

    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"...

    When I've had to lash a bag across the back, I always apply blue, painter's tape to protect the paint on that tailpiece. It comes off easily and doesn't seem to leave any residue, plus a lot cheaper...

    +1 on trying on a helmet at a store. Doing it via the internet, such as from J & P, can be a blind shot. And my guess that their helmet policy is the industry standard as a previous poster...

    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.

    One thing to keep in mind is that regardless of the company or group offering their roadside service, they mostly use the same fleet of generic, privately-owned, tow trucks and how much they are paid...

    You need to buy her proper riding gear, not just the helmet. One simple tip-over in a parking lot can do a fair amount of damage. And have you enrolled her in a riding class?

    The bike was designed to be fitted with the 160/60 rear tire. Anything other than that size will change the handling.

    ps. wider is not always better!

    I don't know the real name but I call those "well nuts" and I doubt if they can be found in a hardware store or dealership. You can create your own substitute using rubber washers, metal washers,...

    My thoughts are that a 900 cc bike is way too much for a rank beginner - even if she had a longer inseam - and Yes, I've heard all the stories of "She'll grow into it." What I find happens most...

    I believe the S has 1-inch shorter wheel travel than the X - 4.9" vs 5.9", so something in the rear suspension is different between the two bikes.

    I would not recommend anyone who already rides to attend a riding class with a loved one who is a beginner.

    It would be a great idea to get her into a riding safety course. A total stranger, who happens to be a professional instructor, does a 300% better job than a loved one who means well. There is also...
