    There'd be a few options, I'd reckon. Looked at SW Motech or Hepco and Becker ?

    I've done lots of searches but can anyone give me a link to an online version of the 2018 NC750X owner's manual? I'm trying to figure out how to change some things on the dashboard (like the stupid disco colors on the dash)

    That time of year again! Just got back from another great ride around the Snowy Mountains with my Son. Such awesome riding around that area. On Sunday we rode from Jingellic to Khancoban heading to Thredbo but couldn't get past Pilots Lookout (near Tom Groggin) due to ice. Detoured around thru Mt Selwyn ski fields and stayed at the Delegate Hotel. Brilliant road and the snow was amazing. Monday was a cold start, road down to Lakes Entrance via Bonang and up to Omeo. Tuesday couldn't get to Mt Hotham because of ice so rode around to Tallangatta via Mitta Mitta with snow for about 5 km's across the top of the range. That is possibly the best road in the country (world??)! Tallangatta to Granya via the Granya Gap Road then around the Murray River Road to Jingellic then up to Tumburumba. Absolutely magic! Stayed the night at Taralga and home via the Bylong Valley.

    NC ticked over 52,000 today. Running beautifully and magic for rolling the km's away.

    Well done Ron.

    Great that you are still happy riding the 750X after all this time.

    I've read the entire thread and saw a few references to a pillion, but has anyone ridden two up and what did the passenger think of it. Generally I only ride with my wife for short days of 200 or so miles once I ride out to a destination and she flys in for a week. She was pretty happy with my 1200gs, but going on 68 I need something lighter and lower. Any comments would be appreciated.

    Not a fan of riding with a passenger on my NC. My Son hated it too. Just not enough room for me or my boy.

    Just bought a 2014 DL1000 V-Strom. Time to get the NC ready for sale. A fantastic bike but life is too short to stick with one bike forever.

    Hi guys,

    Forgive me as I'm sure I'm in the wrong place. I've lurked the forums for a while but can't remember whether I've actually ever posted :p. I own a ktm 690 enduro but my best mate owned a 2014 NC750X and wants to sell off a few goodies from it. Is there somewhere on here to do that? We're in Canada. Thanks!

    Just picked up a 2018 NC750X DCT from an inmate here. Rode her 800 miles home.

    What a perfect long distance machine.

    Whatever any of you (fellow NC owners)do to your NC, don’t purchase the single brace Barkbusters w/o talking to me first!!
    Quite a bit of modification needed to do this
    UNLESS you first install hollow bars.

    Hollow bars?
    My 2017 750x, and the other 1/2s 2013 700x both had normal hollow Honda bars.
    What's the alternative? Solid bars?

    I installed a set to the 700x with no particular problems.
    We sold it last year, and I can't find a better photo than this just now. DSC_1359-01.jpg

    The NC's dirty secrets revealed. They go well with a bit of modding and a skilled pilot.

    Sorry - I left out the word ”ends” as in hollow bar ends vs threaded bar ends. The bars on my 2019 -I bought it new- came with the semi permanent threaded inserts to hold the bar end weights. With the weights off which is required the inserts inside the handlebars must be removed b/4 assembly of the hand guards. This is not an easy task. Once done they are “hollow “. Now new inserts need to be used for the “hollow” bars.
    Also the throttle tube needs to be shortened (cut back)as well as the grips.
    It is a real Macgyver kind of job.!!
