My '96 750NH
« on: July 10, 2017, 06:30:48 AM »
Hey, all. Just signed up last night. Been riding for around 45 years. Here's a pic of my bike:

Some mods: It came with the center stand and Honda backrest/rack. I added the Vetter Windjammer V fairing and K&G luggage, re-covered Corbin seat, electronic cruise control, power/USB ports, GPS, TPMS, 1.5" handle-bar risers, after-market mirrors, and Avon M-26 RoadRider "tyres".

Okie-dokie. It's a Rostra 250-1223, a universal after-market unit made for cars and trucks. I used a Trail Tech 8500RS handlebar-mounted remote-control trail-computer switch pod as the control switch.

The main unit (servo) is mounted in the hollow space below the battery box/air filter housing, above the swing-arm pivot, bolted to an unused threaded hole in the stamped-metal piece under the battery.

Because the NH uses a mechanical speedometer, i had to add magnets and a pick-up coil to read road speed. The unit will cancel with application of brakes or clutch, and pressing the switch's center button.

Having  a greater power-to-weight ratio than cars, it takes a bit of experimentation to tweak the unit settings for smooth acceleration. Once done, it performs as well as a factory-installed CC in a car.
