    Installing GPS - need help about a Fuse box

    I installed the Innov Powerhub as my "fuse block" in my 2015 DCT. Very easy install with all accessories, common ground, and delay start up so you don't overload the system on startup. I had a Kriss headlight modulator but changed to an LED bulb and did...

    Flat front tire questions

    4.5 year old tires on a used bike, with some known defect/damage to one or both tires? Definitely get new tires. That's the right decision IMO.

    Post your 2021 Model Riding Impressions Here

    here's the CalSci medium on my 2015 DCT -- I didn't mind the look (seemed about the same as any similarly sized screen I was looking at). I replaced this with another CalSci but had them do one without the side "wings" that my hand guards would hit at full lock. Like the MadStad, the CalSci...

    Post your 2021 Model Riding Impressions Here

    I've had a C3 Pro for about 4 years now. Great helmet -- all day comfortable (for my head shape), very quiet (especially in clear air), very good visibility. Decent ventilation, but you cannot ride with the shield up even "1 click" over about 20 mph -- it will close. There are folks that put...

    Looking to add an additional brake/tail light for more visibility from the rear, any suggestions?

    hyperlites makes some good stuff, easy to install, and very bright. I have their brake lights.

    apparently, the #1 ranking is per HD's own press release, quoted by all sources: "Today, we are pleased to announce that the Pan America 1250 Special has become the #1 selling adventure touring motorcycle in North America."

    Question 2021 NC750xd Shop and Repair Manual

    and when fasteners break or strip in the process and a one hour job turns into 4! I don't watch DIY home shows because everything they install fits perfectly on the first try -- no stuck fasteners, no shimming, no broken parts. I've never had that experience around the house.;)

    Turn signal issue

    @halfSpinDoctor -- did those replacement blink correctly as turn signals? some LED bulbs in an incandescent circuit don't flash correctly. I have a 2015 DCT so should be the same circuit as your 2013.

    Question Motorcycle conspicuity

    I couldn't justify the price of the Denali's and for sure not the Clearwaters. I went with some generic LEDs from Amazon, bought some brackets for them (also Amazon), and a Skene controller (so it works with my headlight switch to go hi or low, with low being whatever % I want). here the...

    hard cases or soft? Soft will be cheaper but less robust and likely not waterproof. Hard panniers are more common, IMO, but realistically you're looking at $800 or up for a pair of panniers and mounting frame (which tends to be bike specific). That doesn't include the top case and rack. I...

    Is NC700X a Dual Sport bike. Yes, it is. And, no, is not.

    saw this over at advrider: When people who say they want a 50/50 bike buy one, they realize they really wanted a 100/100 bike. But since those don't exist, they either quit or decide what's more important to them and buy a 10/90 or a 90/10 When I'm daydreaming of a new bike, I take a real hard...

    Aftermarket Handlebar Riser Slipping

    somewhere in this forum is a discussion of roughing up the area of the handlebars that contact the risers to provide better grip (using sandpaper or a file or something). The smooth finish of the bars and risers allows slippage.

    can NC750X go offroad?

    that SRCMoto skid plate is nice -- and you're right, they are proud of it ($$$). Nice looking and does look beefy.

    Question Phone mounts

    I've used the RAM X-mount, but prefer the Quick-Grip shown above. Seems be more robust without a lot of added stuff.

    How to reset the PGM-FI / MIL light from a safety fault?

    Well, I guess I won’t be doing the “rear tire spin” anymore either. I’ve done that for years, cognizant of the risks of a moving chain, without throwing a MIL. I don’t think I’ll tempt fate further - just dodged a failed ignition lock so I’m not feeling terribly lucky right now. :rolleyes:

    2021: What did you do to/with your NC700/NC750 today?

    Congrats! That sure says a lot about the rider. Should also put to bed statements that the NC700 is underpowered. :-)

    2012 NC700X for 3000.00? Scratched up -- good deal or avoid?

    I don’t disagree with the thoughts above, but I also know the used market for everything is crazy right now because there’s no supply of new things. So the price doesn’t surprise me.

    Ignition slot not unlocking ... Help! SOLVED

    yeah -- rocked them, caressed them, whispered sweet nothings in the bar ends. Nothing worked. I know powdered graphite is a no-no for bike ignitions because it will form a gunk once wet. So I gambled and used some Deox-It (electrical cleaner/lube), and worked several of my keys in and out ...
