Re: NC750X DCT

Chains I can help with. :D Two things wear in this case; your chain rollers wear, causing the chain to 'stretch', and the sprockets wear on the leading edge, becoming 'hooked'. You've got to check your chain regularly to adjust the tension - every 500 miles or so at a minimum. Your chain is out of ...

Re: OT - new Deauville?

Honda has gone bonkers lately with their car designs. It's a shame they are losing it on the bike front too. I love my NC750X and the DCT is a wonder, but £13500 is taking the piss for the deauville model. If they name it the new Pan Euro and use quality parts that fits the role, it would work as a ...

Re: Snowdonia Discovery Route - 3 August

It's about 230 miles from home (Friday night straight to hotel) and then the Saturday trip is around 210 miles in total spread over the day. Including Sunday return from hotel, it's around 600 miles. I should be alright i think, main worry is the pain in the backside even though i have the Shad seat...
