    Wrong Oil

    I know I am a little late to the party here, but people get too wrapped around the axle over oil viscosities, especially when it comes to the whole 10w-30 vs 10w-40 debate. I found a chart for recommended SAE oils given the outside temps. The range for 10w-30 is from -25C to +30C. 10w-40 is -25C...

    I just double-checked and you are correct.

    600 mile checkup/maintenance

    My 2020 calls for the engine oil to be changed (which is also the transmission oil), the engine oil filter, and the transmission filter at the 600-mile marker. To my knowledge, the only difference between the 2019 and the 2020 is the color so yours should be the same. After that, it calls for...

    2020 NC750 DCT 600 Mile Review

    After 600 miles in a little less than a month, I decided to write a quick pros and cons list of the 2020 NC750 DCT for those who are not sure if they want to purchase the bike or not. While 600 miles of mostly highway riding doesn't give me a full impression of the bike, it has let me make a...

    Anyone know/hear when the 2020's would be available in the US?

    2018 NC750X price negotiation

    I actually didn't buy that 2018 DCT because of this. When I went to do the credit application they wanted to know the name, address, and phone number of a relative that doesn't live with me. Information that has nothing to do with my ability to pay back a loan. I thought the part of them asking...

    2018 NC750X price negotiation

    So I was finally able to find a 2018 DCT model about three hours away in another state. The OTD if I finance is $8394. If I pay cash it is $7930, but I will have to take care of tax and tags myself (most likely leaving me with the same price). I figure roughly $2k less than if I were to wait and...

    2018 NC750X price negotiation

    There was once a time when you could actually get a discount if you paid in cash vise finance. I guess you could always just finance through them and then turn around and pay off the loan right away before they have the chance to collect any amount of interest on it.

    2018 NC750X price negotiation

    So I called four different dealerships around me and only one said they could order a 2020, but couldn't give me a timeframe on how long it would take it to come in since they didn't know what warehouse it was coming from. Up until this point I was under the impression that it would work like a...

    2018 NC750X price negotiation

    The two dealers near me that have the 2018 NC750X in stock use the same photos as the one that dealer used. They are all stock photos of the European DCT version. Apparently using the stock Honda photos is easier than snapping a few pictures of the actual bike on their sales floor. To be honest...

    2018 NC750X price negotiation

    Thanks for the advice on calling around to different dealers to quote OTD prices for a new one. There are a hand full of Honda dealers around me within a 30 min drive or so. indyDean - if I lived within a reasonable driving distance of that dealership I would look into getting it. I live in...

    2018 NC750X price negotiation

    So I went and talked to the dealer today. He wouldn't let me test ride it because he said he doesn't actually prep any of the motorcycles until they are bought. He also wouldn't really negotiate the price at all. The most he was willing to do was take off the destination and paperwork fees which...

    2018 NC750X price negotiation

    I just checked NADA and it has the average retail price at $6680, with the low being $5075. Either way, considerably less than what they have it listed for.

    2018 NC750X price negotiation

    So my local dealer has a brand new 2018 NC750X (manual) for $7599. Considering the 2020 manual NC750X can be had for $8099 per the Honda website, I am thinking they may be willing to negotiate the price some to get a now two year old bike off their floor. Especially considering the NC is not a...
