. oem control cables with teflon lining don't need lube..

Are you saying that this applies to the NH750 cables? I haven't lubed mine in years. They still operate easily, now I know why. They're stock as far as I know.

My clutch is harder to pull in than most other bikes I've tried (but not a problem for my hands), and I attribute it to stiff clutch springs. It moves back out freely.

If one decided to lube Teflon-lined cables anyway, would standard cable lube be adequate, or is there a preferred lube for such cables?

Plus the occasional brake friction-material change, cable lube, and tire pressure top-off.
..trying to highlight the differences... tire pressure and wear parts are ubiquitous.. oem control cables with teflon lining don't need lube..

I bought that from HP, after a spell I decided not to use so I sold to someone on the old NH site.

I still feel that my NH is the best bang for the buck, especially when the buck has priority.  bkr3
I agree Larry, especially when it comes to AFTER you buy the bike.
On the 'Hawk...
Cam chain adjust .. Nope.
Timing adjustment - Nope.
Valve adjustment - Nope.
Anyone with minimal skills can easily keep a NH750 maintained, and there isn't much to do.
Compare the never need to adjust 16 valve hydros to a 16 valve bucket and shim dealer adjustment option.
Over time, maintenance costs add up.
If you buy a cleanable oil filter, that means a filter clean, oil change and chain adjustments.

The problem with all those adventure bikes is they give you a 0° forward lean angle when you want about 10°.  I'm riding a bike with no lean now and I can tell you for me it becomes uncomfortable in the middle back after about 45 minutes.  The leg room on the adventure bikes is great, though, I agree.


I'm not sure about the Versys 1000 but I can confirm that many owners of the Versys 650 complain that the seat is angled too far forward.  Most that don't like do a "washer mod", simply add a few washers at the front mounting point evens out the lean.  I was used to riding a Ninja 650 so didn't find the lean angle of the seat to be a problem on my Versys.
