Thanks for all the pics Fred.

Pity it's the only variant we don't get.

This one would never handle an air compressor load, it comes with a relay so, I assume that it is switched with the ignition (project in progress, so haven verified that yet.) Plus if you do blow a fuse, it is quite a job to get to it.

I hope to have pics of the luggage brackets and top box carrier tomorrow evening.
Oops. The server of my employer blocked the pics. Now that I am home I can see all the pictures. Thanks.

The centerstand is tucked well up out of the way. Looking at it from the rear it appears the shifter or peg will touch before the foot pedal of the centerstand will touch.

Thanks, Dave. I won't worry about getting any more centerstand pics.

Here is a pic of what the bike looks like once you remove the 3 pieces of body work required to install the Honda accessory power socket.

Fred,

What is the sequence of removal of the 3 fairing parts?

I would have to look at the instructions again to get the exact verbiage, but first you remove the piece they call the duct (or something like that). Then off comes the lower fairing piece, then the piece that has the turn signal.

Here is after that first piece is removed. Unless you have the service manual, it might be good to take pics of each piece as you disassemble, as there are several different types of fasteners (I can think of 4 and 3 are shown in this pic) used in different locations. It isn't a simple process, especially the first time.

e bay

picked up my nc700x on mon. put 500mi around town ocean city md. and then left for buffalo ny via pa. I got 66mpg at 75mph. very nice bike. power and brakes were fine. it felt like a vfr 800 with a better ride and less weight. 1288mi now and the tires show no wear, chain is tight. next week I will ride it from ocean city md to calif. on rt.50 and report on the trip.

Too tall

Sat on this bike on Saturday.Would love to buy one, but with a 28" inseam it is just too tall. I can only touch my toes down on both sides. I know a lot of you only put one foot down, but I am used to putting down both feet . I think if I could get one down flat and touch with the other, I might be ok but not sure.

That's all I can do on most of the bikes I've had, never was an issue unless I was doing hardcore offroad stuff.

But I can't get one foot flat and touch with the other. That is the problem.

If I can get one foot down flat I don't find a need to touch with the other as the bike is already stable. But I am sure Kouba or someone else will come out with lowering links soon enough. Honda actually offers a factory lowered version here in Japan.

There are not many bikes that can't be lowered. Most of them easily.
