    May have to just lift the front like everyone else is doing. I just hate to have that gap between the seat and “frunk”.[/QUOTE]


    The gap increase is more at the side cover..........gap at the frunk can be managed to very small or unchanged depending on how it’s done.

    Depending on your sense of aesthetics the gap can be taken care of by carefully trimming sections of closed cell pipe insulation that have adhesive applied to the slit in the pipe insulation. The adhesive secures it to the plastic panels and the seat compresses it. The color pretty much matches the seat cover and because it fills the gap it's hard for the eye to be drawn to it.

    To 670cc...okay...my bike is apparently an X and not an S type as I was told whem my insurance agent entered the VIN. To be honest, I didnt even know there was an S type so it took me by surprise and I was pretty sure I had screwed up. After more research I am now positive that my bike is an X model which is good if I decide to order a Sargent seat. Thanks again for your input.

    The NC700S model is real, but it was never sold by Honda in the United States. I only asked because AL in your profile could be Alabama, USA, or it could be some country abbreviation I'm not aware of.

    I like the seat lift and just have never been able to appreciate a difference as tiny as that.
    Perhaps that is one reason my mother was so exasperated on all those times I was forced to appreciate all the art I was shown in cathedrals and museums all over Europe.
    I just don't get it cause next years someone will come out with a "new design" for a two wheeled vehicle that has gaps all over it and it will be oh so sought after.
