Now that is pretty damning! Thanks
Thanks Tacoma! My take is chain maintenance/alignment is the bigger variable, but it seems some of our fellow riders think the 'JT chains are not as good'. Still cogitating...
Buying new chain/sprockets. Is the DID xring chain really better than the JT brand? $20+ difference.
Hey guys, thanks for insight/comments. The tire is on it's way to tire heaven, but I was just curious. I also think 42 psi is too much, so will run lower going forward.
I will take a pic when I...
Not many weights.
Mounted an arm with a clamp and checked clearance as I spun wheel/tire. Less than .020" runout.
Used to run 38-40psi, but now 42 per manual. Wrong?
After my ride to KSL I inspected my rear Raven closely. 1050 mile trip, 300+ on twisties.
Prolly 5k on the rear in total.
Question is this - the center wear is down to the TWIs on some spots and...
Guys - I made it Sunday morning, but all were gone. Rode the Dragon, Cherahala loop, more. Over 350 miles of twisty fun.
Back in Greenville now with 1050 miles added to the odo. No...
Thanks Fuzzy. I hope there are others that will be around and want to do those runs. Plus, I have only seen one NC700X that wasn't mine.
I have had problems with scheduling and website connection. REALLY WANT to meet you guys. If I come late and stay til Tuesday will anyone be around to ride with? I cannot leave here (7 hours away)...
it was not overpressured. may not be as worn as I thought. Got a new one ready!
thanks guys. I would be happy with 8000 miles! I must be doing something wrong.
alignment seems accurate, but maybe my tire gage is reading low and I'm overpressured? Will check.
Greg - what kinda life do you get out of a rear? Do you find running other than 42psi helps? I bet I don't get 4000 miles. Of course, my sidewalls look brand new... Jim
update - tire arrived. $71 total and three days shipping, not bad. The $25-50 install goes against the grain; gonna try it meself this time.
my tire ain't here yet - et's just hope I get it. ScottHump - I won't care how it smells!!
BTW - my rear squared off pretty quickly. I don't think I got 3000 miles. Pressure dead on 42. I gotta...
It came through on my phone, but not my laptop. Was a Google Express thing. Not sure how I got there, but I think they creep on your surfing and hit we with a targeted push ad.

For you bargain hunters - LeatherUp.com has a deal afoot - 20% off up to $20 for a first order. Makes an $88.76 Shinko Raven 160/60ZR-17 rear $71 - a deal!
Shows up on smartphone, not on laptop?! ...
Well, that takes a potential project off the list! Thanks.
Are there any other easy power mods out there? There are times when I wish for a few more hampsters down there.
Anybody know about this? Any evidence that it works (adds power)? Maybe in concert with an aftermarket exhaust?
How to derestrict Honda NC700 engine from 35kW (A2) to 38kW (51HP)? -...
This is clever as hell on many levels! Not just in theory, but it works.
Some don't need it, some don't want to give up storage, some don't have the wrenching skills - so don't do it.
Good deal, this bike.
Did you put the holes in the windscreen. Better (noise, buffeting)? I have the Honda bracket - which screen is quieter? I'm 5'8".
Thanks. How wide is it at top and bottom areas?
This is a constant subject. But no one has weighed in on this one by Moose Racing:

Anybody have experience? Seems tall at +9 and I don't yet...
If the LED amperage is low, tap off the high beam wire. There is already 5 amps going through it. This is what I did and it's been trouble free for over a year/6000 miles. No failure prone relay...
I have good experience/results changing dirt bike knobbies on wire spoke wheels. But a little afraid of our cast wheels so been using a bike shop. Pricey at $50 (carry-in) a pop for tires that...
This may not appeal to some of you, but I wired my supplemental led lights to the high beam contact on my headlight bulb. At 1-2 amps on top of ~5, the existing wiring and switch handles it with no...
