    Using GPS it shows my speed is off by 5mph or so at 70mph (my usual rate of speed is 70mph-80mph according to my Speedo) my Speedo shows 70mph and GPS shows 75mph.

    It's been like that sense I changed to a 17 tooth sprocket, at the time my NC had 68,000 miles, I just past 90,000 miles last weekend, anyone know the math to figure out what my actual mileage is?

    To throw in another variable I was playing around with the tooth count on the rear sense around 30,000 miles 2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    You will never really know for sure Ripp unless you can show more info on approx miles with what combo you played around with. However, with what you've shown i would add 7,500 and you'll be about right according to what you've shown(off of the top of my head) netting you about 98k-100k miles currently.

    Mine is nearing 20k total. My speedo is 20% off according to my Garmin Montana GPS(as i have a 17T/39T & 140/80-17" rear tire). If my speedo reads 50mph the Montana shows i am actually doing 60mph. With this sprocket/tire combo i was able to achieve 93, 98, 96 and 100.6mpg this year on my special river road test track with speeds varying from 55-35mph as the twisty river road/corners allow. :{)

    Ah close enough for me, I'm a bit tired but I got curious once you brought it up. Now that you mention it, I forgot about tires but I've run the same as stock size Michelin PR4's until this set of tires (shinko 705's) that are a different size but I've got less then a thousand miles on those

    I'm cleaning out both the house and the garage trying to get rid of a bunch of stuff we don't use or need and my wife is planning a surprise party for her friends 40th (which is happening tomorrow) not the best two projects to do at the same time but it is getting me to finish quicker and not drag things out, it's also making wife a bit more compliant with throwing stuff out (garage sale/donate or dump) I've got enough room but I don't like clutter

    Rode to work, out to eat on lunch break, and back home, around 45 miles roundtrip. 75% of the time running 70+mph, and the rubber balls from the track are still on the front tire. Must've been stupid hot and actually bonded with the tire at the track. The rubber balls are picked up when exiting the track as you move off of the race line and into where all the rubber than flies off tires lands when exiting into the paddock. Figured it would have all slung off within 5 miles, but this appears to be actually bonded to the tire. I hope it doesn't actually cause weird tire wear. Maybe they will wear off Sunday, as it will be a few hundred mile roundtrip ride. Just interesting to me that it's 'that' stuck to the tire. Oddly enough, there's none left on the rear tire. Pretty sure it's common practice to knock those balls off your tire as soon as you get back to your pit, but I didn't think anything about it, nor did I want to waste the energy to do it. Lol

    Night ride!

    What did I do today? Nothing; too knackered. I was up at 2am, riding around the countryside with my camera instead.

    Shame the cloud obscured the milky way for much of the evening, and I was too late to catch the core of the arm: but nothing beats the quiet calm of the forest or the coast when it's just you, your camera ...and a thermos of hot coffee!

    Yup; work is hectic and no better way to wind down. If the road is empty because it's so late? More the better!

    Got up fairly early figuring i'd change the rear sprocket back to the 43T so i could have some adjustment in the chain and keep it off of the ground it was so loose(haha). I was putting it all back together when the FedEx guy showed up(early, like that ever happens) with my new chain!! So, all back apart again and swapped the 39T back on as i'm putting it back together i was not able to get the old chain off as i couldn't find my angle grinder.

    Hmmm, so after an hour of tearing my little maint room apart i decided to msg my eldest son and see if he had seen/used it. Haha, "oh ya, uhm, sorry Dad, i'm at work but it's on its way to you"! An hour and a half later his buddy sheepishly shows up to return it. Hmmph!


    Project #1-New DID VX3 chain, installed.
    #2-New manual chain oiler, installed.

    Now i'm off for a quick ride to test it all out! :{)
