The Wings Tour 2014: Leg One
Jul 21, 2014 - 3:52 PM - by Motorcycle.com
What is the connection between motorcycles and airplanes? Growing up with a father who was fascinated by both, my youth was spent scouring the countryside for dusty barn finds, spinning a greasy wrench and flying, in the air and on the ground, wind in my face. It seemed that most of my dad's friends were pilots and motorcycle riders too. Apparently lots of famous aviators are motorcyclists and vice versa. Charles Lindbergh rode an Excelsior Super X. Steve McQueen collected and flew airplanes (his favorite was a Boeing Stearman), along with his better known motorcycle obsession. Former racers Mat Mladin and Bob "Hurricane" Hannah are flying buddies. It's no coincidence that the world's top selling motorcycle company, Honda, uses a wing as its logo. Wings are also featured on the emblem of Moto Guzzi, a company formed by two Italian World War I fighter pilots. The Italians call a person mounted on a motorcycle the "pilota," a pilot, who is a skilled operator in complete control of his craft...

Rossocromo Chainguard
Jun 20, 2014 - 12:52 PM - by sean
I fitted some accessories to my brand new NC750X and here are the details to help anyone else fit similar products.
That's a front mudguard extender, Tutoro chain oiler, Rossocromo hugger, Pyramid hugger, Rossocromo chain guard, Pyramid Ductail, R&G shock protector, Hein Gericke universal fork protectors. Rossocromo Chainguard. First of all I have to say that this product must fit most NC700/750s as they sell a lot and there are photos of it fitted. But it does not (without significant modifications) fit my particular brand new NC750X. I don't know if the dimensions are different on this bike or the moulding was warped. It also did not fit with the Rossocromo hugger as they interfered with each other. Did fit
easily with Pyramid hugger. Chainguard is well made apart from that.
NC750X on centre stand. Remove standard chain guard and I loosely put the Rossocromo chainguard in position. There is little bracket they give you to extend front mounting position. Looked fine so I tightened the screws and put on the rubber strap supplied to help hold it on swingarm. Turned back wheel
by hand and heard a noise. Checked around and saw chain at top of sprocket was hitting chainguard. See photo 1.

Tried to adjust it. Even moving the rubber spacers inside chain guard that go over swingarm to see if this gave a couple of mm clearance. No adjustment made any difference and when you look at the mouldings inside chain guard you can see why there is no up or down adjustment as it basically clips
tightly to swingarm. Photo 2


Photo 3 shows the mark the chain made on chain guard with a couple of turns of the rear wheel by hand.

I think one ride down the street with the road vibration and it would wear through easily. I wanted this chain guard as I wanted to keep back wheel clean of oil flung from chain so I decided to modify it.
The diameter of the chain guard at rear sprocket needed to be bigger. It's thermoplastic so a bit of thermo from a hot air gun will mould it. Photo 4


Be careful and gentle with this. Mark two point and measure them so you know how much bigger you are making it. I increased the diameter at this point from 232mm to 247mm. I used my hands, with gloves for the heat, to mould it at first. Then I found an old bucket lid exactly the right size to help moulding. Photo 5

Checking it on the bike the chain now has about 10mm clearance where it was hitting before.
When it was mounted it was a bit wobbly. When you look at it, it is using the same two mounting points for a small chainguard and these are fine for that but for this bigger chainguard it maybe wobbles a bit. It does... [Read More]
