    BrendanO's NTV650P

    Sorry Mark, just spotted your comment mid-Jan! NTV is classic high-end Honda build, but not comfiest seat (got mine refoamed for Germany last year). Tiny battery for size of engine. I put higher bars on, used to get sore shoulders after 90 min, would still like a little higher. Engine accrues speed in a "modern" manner, competent but not exciting. 55mpg urban stop-start, more out of town. Fine 2-up. Heavyish to pick up if dropped <ahem>. Mine was low mileage, dealer serviced annually, until 4 yrs before me when it was all year commuter for previous owner. This does mean a bit of corrosion, and a tendency to snap fasteners occasionally (eg fork leg) when dismantling; that was a PITA. Then again, I paid £530 in 2011 for a 26k bike. I've replaced reg/rect unit, silencer (downpipes I think last forever), done forks, new clutch at 50k. 2-3 batteries. Tappets and plugs a bit of a bugger to get to.

    well i nearly did

    Well-done Trev, wish I had your attitude, but I am a very lazy man! (I would be doing the easy job first - good fuel flow into carb? ...and if that worked, I might stop right there!)

    Try this

    No app needed Tel. Click the link and you should be taken to a website with a map and marked location. It's a world wide location system which uses a unique system of three words to locate any 9m square in the world. In this case it's 'cage.tank.observers' It's possible, if you have 'location' turned on, that it will scan across to you home location, if that's the case you will see an address bar at the bottom with ///cage.tank.observers already entered. Click it to see the described square.

    Hello, from Wiltshire!

    I think the mudguard bar was a Honda part but the footboards were Markland . They made aftermarket trunk extenders too which i think you have on yours. My bike seems to have disappeared off the planet..😣😣
