    I would start at 3000 to 3100. This is low miles but miles aren't as big as factor like they were in the 70's. There are plenty of used farkled out bikes for $3500 with less than or around 20,000...

    I always put on a staked or peened master link. Permanent and the clip is no longer a worry.
    My preference. I know people are running clips on a 700 but it is not OEM that way.

    I bought the package that juggler showed. I broke two before I figured out how to reset them. Lost one in the bowels of the bike behind some panels. I maintain 2 NC700X'S and wanted some on hand as...

    That tank thingy holds hydraulic fluid. Not gas. Don't know the answer to your question.
    Feel for you losing your shock. That just has to hurt.

    +1 on the battery vote. Put a charger on the battery and charge it. You can use a volt meter to see if it is charged. Should be around 13.1 volts.
