    Rich smelling exhaust nc700x

    My local Honda dealer said the NC's are one of the easiest bikes to check valve clearances on. Apparently not many are that straight forward! Another good thing about them!

    Result! The clearances on the exhaust valves were definitely too tight.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Glad you got it sorted.

    Rich smelling exhaust nc700x

    Hi again guys........ I have good news! Checked my valve clearances over the weekend and the exhaust valves were tight. 0.006in instead of 0.011in. Adjusted them and the exhaust cough and rich smelling exhaust have gone! :-) Lambda sensor readings on my multimeter are fluctuating which I'm inclined to think is good......not permanently rich! Thanks for all your comments and help! I'm going to do the valve clearance on my other NC! Cheers Tony

    If that's while the bike is on the side stand or centre stand either way it's too tight, slacken it.

    Welcome to the forum. 25mm on the stand might be less as the swing arm moves. Slacken if off until you can pull it clear of the rear sprocket teeth, clean and adjust back to 35mm. You always want to pull a chain into adjustment, so if it goes tight you need to go back and start again. While you have the ruler out measure from the middle of the axle to back of the swing arm. Lets make sure the axle is straight in the fork of the arm, using the little markings can, be awkward enough to go out by a couple. The chain running on an angled sprocket will make a bit of a fuss.

    Measured it and it averaged around 25mm. Would this be tight enough to cause my stated issues?

    Parking Brake has become weak

    Yes, they shouldn't but they have both from the adjustment needed and looking at them so must have been on or catching. For a tenner I'll have and fit new ones. Good opportunity to give it a clean up too.

    Exactly! How will they wear if only ever in contact with a stationary disc?! Be careful before rushing out and buying new ones Mike?

    Parking Brake has become weak

    The parking brake is the same as a Silverwing scooter, I brought new pads because they had very little life left,,,,WRONG when the new pads arrived they were the same thickness as the existing ones. They are only a couple of mm thickness new. Thinking about it they should never wear out.

    Parking Brake has become weak

    I found out when getting new tyres that the parking brake discs are completely worn. I noticed a few weeks ago that the brake had suddenly become weak and adjusted again. Yesterday when parking up for the tyres I found it weak yet again. I don't think I've been riding with it on (apart from the occasional couple of metres realising it's still on) so wonder if it has been binding. New pads and a clean up /grease in order. The Honda OEM pads are over £40, but there are EBC ones that fit. Part number is SFA257/2 and available for about £10-12 shipped.

    Hi Jordan and welcome to the forum. Hope it's just a tight chain and you've sorted it in time.

    Not really a problem, but I doubt there are many people on this forum who are neighbours and will be able to pop round to have a look. Get the bike upright then get a ruler and measure the play top to bottom at points around the length of the chain, I look for an average of 35mm play (30mm min, 40mm max) as my chain has a couple of tight spots on it Also have a look and make sure its not dry.

    RSA unfortunately, good spot though! The surname gives me away that quickly? Couldn’t find a nc750/700 forum anywhere else besides this one.

    It is manual. wow this is extremely helpful. I will have a look and hope that that is the problem! Should be a lot easier and cheaper to fix than replacing a clutch

    With a name like Botha you in UK or RSA?

    As above but find the tightest part of the chain first and adjust the chain on that tight spot

    Transmission grind

    Too tight chain is a posibility If the chain is too tight it pulls on the output shaft from the gearbox and can cause issues mostly noise and viberation but proloned overtightning kills chains and can kill the gearbox output bearing With the chain freshly lubed 30/40mm free play my go to guide is the chain should nearly be able to tutch the swing arm seen=m rather loose but get two mates to sit on the bike and see how littl free play is left !! Is it manual or DCT?

    Welcome along. Is this a manual or DCT version?

    Can you elaborate? How would this cause my clunking and grinding transmission? Had no idea this was even possible

    Hi Jordan welcome to the forum. Sorry to read about your problem. I’m sure that some of the more technically minded will be along to help you.

    Transmission grind

    Hi all, I am new here and I hope this is the right place for my post. I bought a 2016 750x about 3 or so months ago. Put on just under 6k km’s since then. 45k km’s total mileage. About a month and a half ago the bike started grinding gears. It grinds when going into first occasionally(from stationary), it also grinds on other gears especially when at higher rpm’s. 6th gear always grinds, and sends an intense vibration up my entire foot. Anyone else had similar issues? Wondering it it’s maybe the clutch. Regards,
