Summary:

One of the BEST Hondas I have ever owned

Faults:

What can I say? The bike is BRAND NEW; 0 Kms on it when I picked it up from the dealer. I have only put on 1250 Km.

Nothing has gone wrong as of July 19, 2010.

I just got on June 4, 2010. The dealer still had it in a wooden crate from 2008, and was looking just to get rid of it. VT750C2F Blue 2008.

General Comments:

So far I have had only three small problems.

One the pegs for the passenger was too high and set back too far, So I replaced the pegs with Kuryakyn floorboards, and I lowered them and moved them forward about 2 inches in each direction.

Next, the stock seat was JUNK, just BAD. Honda should be ashamed, so I had to get a Mustang seat for the driver and passenger.

My last problem is finding floorboards WITH, I repeat WITH, a heel and toe shifter. MC makes one, but is out of stock to the end of the year for this bike???
