Doesn't do me much good, but I'm jealous of that, always felt like my NC was too tall (ergo the lowering links). These should work regardless, since they're just all-thread. But might get it too low and require a lowered kick stand.
I sold my NC700X, but I have a pair of lowering links still in the 'factory' packaging
Which, in this case, is a black zip tie with the installation guide wrapped around them. My NC was a 2014, but I assume it's good for any year model and the 750 as well.
Asking $100 - I'll cover shipping...
Anybody know of any vendors who sell a rear seat replacement part, that leaves the filler cap exposed? I don't carry passengers, ever, so just swapping in some type of rack with a filler gap would be about perfect for me, remove one extra step from refueling.
That's what I did, it's listed as a 6x65 oval, and I grabbed part numbers. But having some secondary confirmation if anyone had it handy was a nice sanity check. Also ended up replacing a few other screws, I swear the previous owner only had a US-standard set of allens and just hammered them...
I swapped the old handguards off today, and found out the previous owner cut down the factory screws. So they won't even stick through the external bar end weights anymore. Because of course he did. Anyone know off hand what those screws are?
Once I get that sorted, should have the bike finale...
I'll order some washers. Do you know the spec off hand? I'm in no rush on this one, might as well get everything in hand.
I do have a torque wrench that has only rarely been used as a hammer so should be in calibration.
The 10w40 was on sale, so that's what's going in :)
I'm grabbing everything I need to do this, oil change plus valve check
2014 nc700x, manual.
4 quarts mobil 1 racing 4T 10x40 motorcycle oil
Kn 204-1 filter
1 gallon zerex 50/50 blue Asian silicate free coolant
Also grabbing an oil pan, I have a filter wrench and I think all the fittings...
Cool. I'll probably stick with the valve check and an oil change then, and just top off the coolant. It probably doesn't need the oil change, but since I can't tell how old it might be, and it's pretty simple, I'll do it while I'm there. I'll inspect the pads, and make sure the front and rear...
I bought a 2014 NC700X a couple weeks back. I'm slowly rehabbing it - it seems in fair condition, but I have no service history for the bike. I've got to get the tires swapped, they were so square you could have used them as rulers, and 6+ years old besides. I'm not up for doing that myself yet...
Wanting to sell 3 items, I'm in Plano, Texas if you want to pick it up, otherwise we'll have to work out shipping since it's so expensive these days.
1) Givi frame for a 2012-2015 NC700X, includes all hardware, brackets, and a universal top box rack
2) Givi Maxia 3 - Uses the monokey system...
That about sums up the bike, yes :).
I mean, he ground the factory levers down to fit this aftermarket handguard setup, so funky is about right.
Overall, sounds like I can order some OEM bar weights and see if it works out.
I'll take another look when I've got time this afternoon. Hopefully it's just the external weights that got removed. Make my life easier.
For @670cc - just the weights, I'm not doing bar end mirrors, sorry for lack of clarity.
Need to yank off the 'one size fits none' handguards on my bike, never messed with bar ends, looks like there are none - anyone offer advice on OEM for cheap or a good set of aftermarkets?
Longer story: Bought a 2014 NC700X over the weekend. Previous owner went full touring silly on it (seat...
Thank you so much for that picture. I now understand how all of this fits together.
I had a CB500X where the rails were much more modular, so I get that the rack rails are required.
And haha, silly person asking if a dealership would give me something for free.
Ah, I was trying to figure out if I could remove the entire rack assembly, not just the rack plate, so I guess that was confusing. I was hoping to have it look more like stock + bags, rather than bags+rack-plate, if that makes sense.
And some racks are useful, but I find either the frunk or a...
I've got a 2016 DCT, bought it used with the OEM rack/bag setup.
I really hate racks. I hate top boxes too. I'm not against the bags though.
Is it possible to keep the bags and bag mounts, without the rack? The dealer installation instructions have confused the everloving days out of me...
