    Lowering NC750X

    I did the same modifications on my 2016. The links (turnbuckles) worked great, I returned the sidestand for fear it would break. Also cut and welded stock side stand.

    DCT shift motor failure

    The reason they replaced the shift motor was because they said it had a short. Note: they have had to replace a number of shirt motors on Honda 4 wheelers that use DCT so that influenced their decision to look for a problem there.

    Puig Windshield- 2016 and up

    Puig 8910H Windshield. It did a much better job controlling wind and buffeting than stock. Kept bugs off my face-shield much better too. Excellent condition, screws directly into stock bracket. I sold the bike. Here is a link to their site...

    Windshield, Axle tools, Shop Manual -- The only item left is the head gasket.

    Yes, 2016 was a change year and I don't think it will fit.

    Windshield, Axle tools, Shop Manual -- The only item left is the head gasket.

    I'm removing the service manual from the list since it was pointed out that it is a copy, even though I didn't know that at the time. I will take it out of circulation. I want to give the other items a new home so I'm lowering the price to $75+shipping for everything. Puig Windshield, head...

    You are of course correct. I just didn't know that when I bought it. None the less it was helpful in maintaining the bike.

    Gas tank blocked

    I know where you mean and there are a lot of tubes and electrical wires stuffed into that cutout in the cover. I've been in there before and thanks for the warning to be careful to not pinch the hoses.

    Gas tank blocked

    Update: The Dealer acknowledged the hoses that were supposed to be behind the shift motor and outside the frame were instead behind/inside the frame and the center stand had pinched them closed causing the tank to collapse. They will replace the tank.

    Gas tank blocked

    I think when the Dealer replaced the shift motor they pinched a hose upon reassembly. Both the fuel tank Drain Hose A and the fuel tank Breather Hose come down just behind the Shift Motor. See pages 1-41 and 7-8 in the Shop Manual. Do you know exactly which hose you pinched?

    Gas tank blocked

    I can only hope someone else has had a similar condition and can help solve this puzzle. I had gotten my bike back from fixing the shift motor failure and went for another ride. Came home after 140 miles and parked the bike. 6 days later I prepared to go for another ride. Rolled the bike off...

    DCT shift motor failure

    After your comments pointing out my incorrect description of the state of the shift motor I talked to the lead mechanic (he didn’t make the comment) at the dealership who was directly involved in talking to Honda and asked him how he knew the shift motor was bad and should be changed. He said...

    DCT shift motor failure

    On 9/14/19 I related a DCT problem on my 2016 NC700XD with 36,000 miles. It was stuck in 2nd gear and wouldn’t start. I finally got it back in neutral and functioning normally after lots of fiddling but my concern at that time was that I didn’t know for sure what had caused the problem and how...

    DTC Lockup

    I hadn't remembered this and it probably could have corrected the situation much quicker. Thanks for pointing it out (I finally found it in the Manual). Guess all of these suggestions are important if you live with a DCT. Still wish I knew what caused it to stop in 2nd gear, not 1st and then...

    DTC Lockup

    I have a 2016 NC700XD with 36,000 miles. On 9/14/19 after arriving home from a 2 hour ride and a quick gasoline fill-up. I killed the engine to open the garage. Went back to restart it and it was stuck in 2nd gear and therefore wouldn’t start. Thanks to the efforts of others on this forum who...
