    I'm curious as to what shock you have installed. It doesn't look like the RSV4 shock that I have. It's a stock shock off of something, the question is what.

    I have the opposite problem: with a longer rear shock, and taller tires, my centerstand doesn't lift the rear wheel off the ground.

    I use a rear stand.

    Did you check spring length vs spec? If adding spring preload helped, my best guess is that the springs are shorter than they ought to be.

    I wouldn't expect the difference between speedo and odo to vary at all between bikes, or with tire wear. If speedo reads 1% higher than odo, that's true no matter where your tires are (given that...

    I believe the one on mine is a Speedohealer V4 and seems to work well.

    My centerstand isn't tall enough, and I don't think I have enough weight on the rear to get the front up on the stand either.

    Haven't gotten around to doing anything.

    31.4kB for a 1216 page pdf doesn't make sense. Maybe you mean 31.4MB?

    31,400 / 1216 = 25.8 B / page, which is 25.8 characters (and that has to include formatting etc)

    I'd recommend un-lowering and un-stretching the Grom. I imagine the seat height is low enough to flat foot at stock height, and it'll handle a lot better.

    I've had pistons pushed back due to a tankslapper, I can see it happening over very rough roads, but this was a paved road in decent shape.

    I was also surprised that the brake problems went away,...

    I've never had that happen on track/when racing. It's something I thought of, I'm just curious as to why I haven't encountered it before.

    I'm sure the brakes were reasonably warm, but they...

    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.
  17. 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'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...
