    I don't hear about it being done often. I have done the rear once. Looks like water got in. When I replace the tires I have added pulling out the seals and re-greasing to my maintenance plan.

    I'd say for mods, the only real essential for me was adding the center stand, for being able to easily lubricate and adjust the chain.

    As halfSpinDoctor mentioned a center stand is really nice to have. I also find having a larger windscreen and bark buster or equivalent hand covers to be nice.

    For someone new to NC700x the only other things I'd want to tell you about that I learned the hard way.

    1)The front turn signals are a pain in the butt to completely replace.
    2)The right hand side mirror spins on backwards to most mirrors, and will require an adapter of some sort for aftermarket mirrors.

    Cheers guys
    Thankfully I'm buying one with a centre stand, I'm going to try and move the barkbusters from my current bike over.
    I don't think I could ride without them... Same with a higher screen.
    I appreciate all the tips!
