Re: NC750X DCT

Oh snap, I think that must've happened before I joined the forum! I once had something similar happen on an old Peugeot Trekker 50, but 4 months?! I'd be livid! I'm glad you've got it back again now, and extremely glad you weren't hurt when the thing seized up. Scary stuff...

Re: NC750X DCT

The T-Max *is* a lot of fun, that's for sure...and I do hate spoked wheels...

Why is your T-Max stuck in a workshop?

Re: NC750X DCT

Damn, that's impressive. Perhaps I should've gotten an X-ADV instead of my T-Max after all! ;)

Re: Tmax mk6 pillion comfort?

Hehe there you go! If you're WOT all the time and dragging the front brakes hard for every corner then yes, things will wear out faster :D

Re: Tmax mk6 pillion comfort?

Yep, the small 39l top box, but well within the 5kg load limit. I haven't touched the damping adjustment as it's actually remarkably well-judged for a stock system. That being said, I'm already pricing up aftermarket replacements with stiffer springs and remote preload adjusters! As for the tyres......

Re: Tmax mk6 pillion comfort?

Ah yes, the tyres! :D Well, after the initial panic and buying a new set before the trip they're still sitting in the conservatory. The bike now has almost 7k on those originals and despite half of those miles being fully-loaded two-up I still have 2mm on both front and rear. At this rate, I won't b...

Re: NC750X DCT

There are a couple of benefits that I can see. Firstly, fuel economy is improved, though I don't know how much of that is down to the direct-drive technology versus very conservative shift programming. Secondly, DCT servicing consists of an additional oil filter to clean I believe, as opposed to an ...

Re: Tmax mk6 pillion comfort?

Just got back from Europe, a 3,000 mile loop through northern italy, Austria and Germany encompassing a couple dozen alpine passes. Both myself and my partner were very comfortable on the T-Max - multiple sitting positions for both rider and pillion make it easy to stretch out joints and there's loa...

Re: T-Max Underseat Bag

Those panniers look interesting, where'd you get them? I just returned from a two-up, two week trip where I had the underseat storage and my pillion had the smaller 39l top box (the big one is on back-order according to Yamaha) and the tunnel-bag took care of day-to-day bits and pieces. It was a bit...
