    The OEM passenger grab rails have a hollowed out slot on the underside of them. Thin metal hook bungee cords hook under it just fine or use Rok Straps with their soft loops around the rails.

    Trying to change it half-asked is not ideal, I think we agree on that. Having just replaced steering bearings on the Wing I'm thinking a proper fork oil job on the NC is a simple half day job but not...

    I replace one of these trim clips maybe every 20,000 miles, or never. I can afford the Honda OEM ones at that rate.

    Back to black, not seen since 2015.

    Looks like Honda finally updated the website and removed all references to linked brakes it hasn't had since 2013.
