    Changed the air filter, not as bad as I feared. Did drop one of the plastic push pins into the fairing from which it did not return.

    A question about ATF for fork oil. All my 1980's Hondas listed ATF as an alternative to Honda fork oil, the forks don't seem to be any different on the NC so is it O K to use ATF in the forks?

    Road tires for NC 700X

    Pardon if this has been asked. I'm wondering what tires folks prefer for road only use with lots of interstate hiways. I always liked the PR4s on my BMW but figure I'll ask.
