Welcome! I traded my GSA in for a 0 miles NC750 XD in February. It sure is a lot easier to pick up! He he, not that I like dropping them but, stuff happens. I did 7,200 miles on mine in May. 65 y.o. here.
Pics of yours are demanded!
We've had a member do that and his wife (if i remember right) sewed a flap over the cut out. I would do the cut out on another seat but my bike is only 2,000 miles old....if I could get a cheap used seat, I'd do it.
After the primer, I sprayed a truck bed liner (again, rattle can) for a little more grip. Then, the semi gloss black.
It could easily be covered. I didn't want to cut into my BRAND NEW pillion seat!
Speaking of, does anyone know if the 700 pillion will fit the 750?
I'd buy another seat and...
I'm a wood finisiher so have access to lots of "stuff" wooden. My block of wood just happen to be a scratched up walnut seat we replaced. I would get a piece at least 3/4" thick.
Take the pillion seat off and trace out the pattern.
Cut it out with a skill saw. Soften the edges with a sander...
I got a wooden seat bottom and cut out a blank for the pillion .
Going on my first big trip with my 2020 750dct in a couple of weeks.
There's no way I was going to remove my dry bag with every fill up. So, I made a thing. I'm too cheap for a Dale's Rack. This a cheap alternative...did I...
My extra power ports are 2 USB plugs , a cigarette typ plug and a voltmeter all in one. I do have a switch (and fuse) . I could accidentally, leave it on if I weren't so ocd. I have my driving lights hooked up the same way.
Put in neutral
Put on brake
Turn off key...
I think the panels came off my 2020 750 easier than my 2012 700. Maybe because I'm more familiar with the way Honda does it now...idk.
I got all my electronics I want with only taking off the left side.
Im amazed at how all the parts fit.
Bought mine Feb 2. I have 2,300 mi.es on it and haven't taken a trip yet.
Trip is coming April 19. Of course, I live in the south USA ... but, we have had some bad weather.
Weather had a lot to do with mileage on bikes. Just don't let a good day pass you up!
