    I finally got my 2017 DCT model

    Greetings from Washington State.

    The local Honda shop just got a pristine DCT model on the showroom with 9,000 miles.
    The bike came fitted with SW Motech crash bars and skid plate, Givi pannier racks, Puig touring screen and factory heated grips and center stand.

    I just ordered an MCCruise cruise control, has anyone fitted this product that can offer anything to watch out for or any tips to help on the project?  Thanks in advance.

    Ordered the same cc myself and am looking to install it in the next couple of weeks. Gulp. I will for sure be scouring the boards and interwebs for intel on the how to.

    It is actually very straight forward.  I have never had better instructions on any project I have ever done, and best of all, Frank and Tony are very responsive via email with help and suggestions, should you need assistance.
    The install and calibration took me about 5 hours with zero prior knowledge of the bike, and the CC works wonderfully.   :152:

    I recently bought the bike and this was the first time taking it apart, so it was a learning experience.  Once you take the panels off the first time, its really quite simple the next time.  While I had it torn apart, I replaced the filthy air filter.  Read through the instructions a few times before you ever pick up a wrench.  Good luck
