    No, given that I'm concerned it could be bearings I headed home. I was thinking that bad bearings could result in some wiggle in the rotor and therefore pushing the pistons back in - I've had that...

    I flushed the brakes after I bought it early this year, so it's fairly fresh. Doesn't look bad either.

    Haven't put it up in the air to check things yet.
  3. Whining noise from front at some speeds, brake issues. Wheel bearings?

    Went to leave for a trip and a couple hundred miles in, after a decent downhill section, I stopped to take a few pictures. I get back on the bike after several minutes, continue, get to the next...

    Another reason to replace it is if it gets inconsistent: if slack changes dramatically as you spin the rear wheel, it's overdue for replacement.

    Stopping distance on sportbikes (on good pavement) is limited by wheelbase and ride height: the rear wheel comes up before the front locks.

    Since the NC700 has a significantly longer wheelbase,...

    I was tempted, but it looks like it has some rather quick wear items and uses a LOT of lube. Refill every 1000mi, new pad every 5000mi.

    Yeah, racing means I do enough tires that it was worth buying a used Coats 200 with a couple bars, 3 irons, clamps, lube, etc for $200.

    If the front end feel is changing after use on bumpy roads, I suspect your fork oil is overdue for a replacement. Suspension use warms the oil, which results in it thinning out, which explains the...

    Ermax Fender Eliminator is an option that really makes it look decent. Of course, the downside is that you'll get more spray on your back in wet weather etc.

    I have fresh HH pads on my NC. Front brake is recently bled. Braking is still solidly meh vs what I'm used to, especially when loaded down... then again, the brakes on my other bikes aren't stock...

    I'd recommend learning to do your own maintenance, including at least pulling the wheels off. It'll save you quite a bit on tire mounting.

    The mounting itself isn't something most people DIY - I...

    I know, old thread, but it's what I found when searching.

    The manual linked above doesn't apply to US models. Does the procedure work?

    I dread tire changes much less now that I have tire warmers. Being able to have a nice warm, compliant tire even when it's cool/not sunny makes things far easier.

    I think you could get a good idea of how it'll sound with this by simply removing the stock muffler.

    I remember the NC700S using a shorter shock than the X, but not exactly how much shorter it is.

    I think the 17 RSV4 shock that I have, even set as short as it'll go, is likely to be longer than...

    Alaska 2019

    Figured I'd put my basic route plans up here.

    Day 1: slab it to Yuba City, 20 to Marysville Road to 49N to Gold Lake Highway (if open, not sure if it is) to 89N to 147N to 36E to 139N to 299E to...

    Obviously in some ways it's less convenient than knee...

    turns out the skid plate I picked up hits the centerstand. not too worried about the dents in either (although I'd rather they not be there), just annoying.

    I'm shocked that liability and un/under is only $140/y. Is that property only or something, as I think it'd be in a no-fault state? For me, un/under costs more than liability (100/300/100), comp...
