I have a set of TKC's and like them for road riding. I have used the Pirelli on my old 919 and really liked them for that bike. I have a set of Shinko's that have not been mounted for my XR650L and may never get mounted now that I have the NC.

Any input yet on some of this mix of ADV tires?

They are confirmed.



This is a modular system designed to offer you a few options to fit your needs. There are three things to order. They are:

1. Footpeg Mount - Buy the one apropriate for the NC700X. Sold in pairs.

2. Displacement Arm - Each length is sold separately — purchase either the 23, 30 or *50mm length.

3. Footpeg - Footpegs are sold in pairs, however each style is sold separately — purchase either the “Racing”, "Master Grip” (shown above) or “Super Grip” style.

Keep in mind though that although offered, we do not reccommend the 50mm displacement arm for the driver pegs. The length is so long that in most positions it is hard to use the levers (shift & brake).

That was a great install video showing how it offers various installation positions.

Front Suspension upgrade?

I posted this on the NC700 forum but thought I'd ask here since the riders here seem to be more knowledgeable. I know Beemer sent his to Racetech but I'm wondering if anyone has done anything different? I really don't want to spend $500 on my forks. I just installed an Ohlin on the rear and the improvement is amazing. Thanks in advance,

Not quite the info you are looking for but, I had the 1000 for a long time. The NC has almost no vibes in comparison but no where near as fast. The mpg is at least double on the same roads/rides on the NC.

How many miles do you have on your NC?
I have a couple thousand miles and the forks seem to need some wearing in. Mine are getting better, and I would sure recommend fluid weight change before spending $500.

I only have 3k miles but I don't think they will get better.

The NC is probably the smoothest twin I've ridden, it's virtually 4cyl smooth
at certain revs.

Agreed. I formerly rode a 2005 DL650 that I sold in 2009. On the Wee--I'd have to stand up to stretch my legs every 45 minutes or so, as the vibrations would cause some numbness/tingling. With the NC...my only complaint is the stock seat. I think once I address that issue, I could sit in this saddle for hours like a cruiser.

That is actually a common turn signal configuration. Every bike I have owned has been like this.

As for raising the screen - there are several aftermarket screens that will give you a taller screen. Sometimes the best solution though is not height but "air management" with something like a an add-on spoiler.

So far this year the NC700X is the second best selling bike in the UK behind the combined BMW R1200GS and GS Adventure. The NC outsold the Fireblade which has been Honda's best selling bike for a while. I read that today and think a couple months ago read the NC700X was all ECs second best selling bike.
