KAZ, all correct but key here is fork oil level is measured with forks compressed. So you'll have to remove the wheel to independently compress each fork if you use the measurement method. Follow...
I use a manual vacuum extractor and do exactly what you describe. You should be able to get right about 475ml out with the forks extended (on center stand) of the 515ml that is supposedly in there. ...
You'll need to check it all. Rear and front alignment. This video is as good as any other I've seen ref forks binding/twisting out of alignment. I actually took the wheel off and all the pinch...
If you haven't yet: toggle the cutoff switch off and back to run position. Found it to be sensitive to the point where it looked to be in the run position yet was not fully engaged.
Floating disc on the NC? 6 piston caliper? Dual calipers?
A bit confused here.
The Bizarre Reason to Cut Down Your Bradford Pear Tree
Some cities are paying folks to cut them down.....
I ended up marking around the grab rails with a grease pencil (china marker) and doing a little cutting to get more clearance on the side panels. Then smoothed out with Dremel. Allowed me to...

Miss the VFR days. Had an 86 VFR750F2 that came back from Germany. Such a great machine.
Rode to work. Fired up the heated liner for the Aerostich. Nice and toasty.

Exactly the point to be made.
You bought the exact same chain re-branded as VX3 at a higher cost. You define budget.
A note for those seeking an alternate that is still an iridium plug....
I noticed Autolite has listed their 3923 plug as fitting the NC; they list the application as XS3923 (xtreme sport). ...
If it is that annoying, suggest turning on your ad blocker, or installing AdBlock Plus. The later works well in this situation.
Ditto on clear silicone sealant; a couple few spots to hold it in place. Tub and Tile version for exposure/resistance to water.
The DID site, D.I.D Motorcycle Chains and DirtStar(R) Rims, does not list VX3 chain that I can find. Discontinued due to problems?
This site indicates it as the upgraded chain to replace VX2. ...
M6x1.00 for my 2012.
Check online parts catalog; will give you size x length (2012 says M6 x 14 I think).
Changes to the 500x footpegs I put on previously. Seem to work well thus far.
No, but as already mentioned I would spend half that on a used Aerostich suit from eBay; maybe a wee bit more than 1/2.
Miss the visits to Scotland (when I lived in Germany); such a beautiful country.
Taken for what it was designed to do (commute), the only real downside I've encountered is the system...
Adv Myths videos are good also.
