    Although not specifically a CB500X wheel, several past threads dealt with the attempts or suggestions to put a 19 on the NC700X. You can Google them, but here are some:

    I sure hope BMW did a better job on the self canceling signals than Honda did. I have then on my Goldwing and I just hate them. After signaling, but just before I’m about to turn, they shut off. Then...

    I noticed the pattern on the disk in the upper photo shows 5 discolored areas, coinciding roughly between the 5 bolt mounting locations. I’ve never heard of such a problem, so I’m just speculating...

    The Rox give you more adjustability, and will offer more rise, depending on which model you buy. However, for the much lower price, the fixed risers are a good start, and easier to install.

    My apologies for posting in the NC subforum, because I didn’t do anything with my NC today, except maybe glance at it and admire it.

    Electric or no, the motorcycle market is shrinking. The focus should be on keeping two wheeled vehicles “alive”, regardless of the means of powering them.

    At each year I continue as a motorcycle...

    I have seen this type fitment tolerance disclaimer on other low cost products, often coming from China. But, +/- 1-3 cm is excessive. Perhaps it means 1-3 mm, but it says what it says.

    I have installed the Oxford grips in my NC700X, and also on a CRF250L Rally. I’m fairly certain I used the adventure model in both case, and they fit the NC just fine. I like these heated grips.

    I have to agree that the NC750X is not the ideal choice for the roads you pictured. If this were my "adventure", I'd be looking for a true dual sport bike. I agree that the Africa Twin would be a...

    I use a MojoLever. Works great.

    I also use the Yellow Thing from No-Mar, their tire mounting lube, as well as their bead clamp.

    Oh, yes, I tried the ratchet strap on the limp trailer tire. Tried putting wood blocks in the tire for days hoping it would hold shape. Soon as I put the tire back on the rim, it fell flat, nowhere...

    I guess this is why dual sports have high fenders. See mud packing on the NC in the following photo. Pine needles probably didn’t help the situation.

    The thing to keep in mind is that under the adventure styled bodywork, the NC750X is basically a street bike, and a good handling one at that. The 50 some horsepower is totally adequate for me, but...

    I can't remember the last time I got a tire in a box; tires always come bare lately, even car tires.

    Obviously commercial tire vendors get way,way better rates than you'd get walking in to a...

    I did so back in the 1990s, but using a clamp can scratch rims if it slips. You need to have the clamp right next to the rim for it to work, and it tends to slide toward the rim.

    Based on my experience, bar risers are a huge plus for ride comfort. You can go with 2 inch risers and still make it work with the existing cables and wiring. I hope eventually to get to 3.2 inch...
