Does anyone else have this problem, and if so, were you able to fix it? I am thinking a thicker rubber stop on the right side of the center stand would lower the center stand bar a little and then not interfere with my foot. Also, might just leave it alone and get used to it.
    Hey SBl... Welcome to the ride and a hearty welcome from north Idaho!! Congrats on the NC, i too did the ratchet strap trick when i installed my center stand and wow it was simple/easy! Heh Heh, my left heel hit the stand as well, not enough to make me lower it. :{)

    My battery is now 4+ years old. I ride every day rain or shine and it still seems to be OK.

    Yup. Living in the cooler north helps on battery life. My NC battery is over 6 years old. I replace them proactively at 8 years. My wife’s scooter has the same battery type as the NC, and the battery is 7.5 years old - scheduled for replacement next spring.

    All that said though, some batteries do experience unexplained, unexpected, sudden death.

    Well, that makes me feel a lot better. Come to think of it, I had to replace a battery on a Subaru Forester that was ten years old. That battery was installed at the factory.

    I haven't measured yet, but I am pretty sure the "witness" zip tie is telling me I am using ALL my front fork travel....

    Have you been doing some dirt? Or is that from just pavement?
