    2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    So over a month ago I installed FXCNC adjustable levers. The clutch lever would pop and lose adjustment in two positions. Took a week of emails with support and they decided to send me a replacement part (just the lever, not the piece where it mounts). The process wasn't too bad but they had...

    2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    When I changed my coolant, I recall some paint being in there. It was loose but still attached so I peeled it off. Shouldn't have to do that. I believe there's the main coolant drain and an allen screw at the base of the cylinder. Remove both, flush with water, then fill. I fill the...

    2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    They're free so no reason not to take the class regularly. Took two last year (first & second level). Signed up for four this year but the first three were cancelled (heavy rains, flooding, and one day was sleeting). Maybe next year I'll get in more classes. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    Ordered 7 monitors at work from an Amazon seller. 1 showed up and tracking provided by the seller said one box was delivered to another state (yeah, 6 x 24" monitors in one 12 pound box). After realizing they were not going to help, I contacted Amazon, waited for them to figure out what...

    2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    So I made a video of my defective clutch lever and started a claim through Amazon. FYI, Amazon strips all non-Amazon URLs from claims so they didn't get the YouTube links. Can you send a picture? Sure but I fail to see how that helps. YouTube videos aren't public so you need the URL to see...

    2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    Today I ride to work. Woohoo! Exciting, I know. [emoji16] To show support the issue with my new levers, I took this video today. Settings 2 and 5 are an issue but others are fine. Setting 5 seems to work if it's just right but 2 will fail after a few attempts. I'll update with support's...

    2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    After 3 weeks of waiting, my adjustable levers arrived. Cheap levers from China (FXCNC brand) so I mostly hoped they worked. My wife's arrived a week ago for her Rebel 500. Install and fit was just like OEM. Clutch works at any position. Brake works in any position but I feel the two...

    Yamaha FJR A E

    I'd check the FJR forums. A friend list his 2006 motor at 100k miles and I recall him saying that was normal for '03-'06. That's was about 8 years ago so I don't remember there details. I think '07+ fixed the issue he had. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    It's a local park they close for the day. It's about a mile loop and we made 2 laps at a time. Group size was 3-4 participants with officers in between. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    So the camera failed me. I got a couple random minutes of video (started a few minutes after I pressed record). So here's what little I got from the class today. YouTube Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    Advanced class completed. 9 Harleys, 1 BMW dual sport, and my nc700x. Only one bike was dropped and that was one of the officers practicing tight turns. Locking the rear wheel (non-abs) and skidding from pavement to grass is still uneasy. Sure, it's only 15mph but a squirming bike isn't fun...

    New Recommendations June 2019, who do you watch, what do you read?

    My wife likes Proficient Motorcycling (1 and 2). I like A Twist of the Wrist (1 and 2). We read them before we got together and lost our copies. Recently we ordered new copies so we can refresh and read the ones new to us. Classes... My wife took the MSF class again last year and felt it...

    Yes, mirrors can come loose on any bike. It's happened to me a few times. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    Every day this week I needed to carry something for work (computers, UPS, etc.) so no commuting on the bike. Yes, I could ride then use the company car but due to locations, that's triple the driving and I get home later. Not much fun but it makes the most sense (especially when I've been short...

    Kali helmets?

    Any particular reason? Or just generally shying away from unknown brands? I'm hesitant to use my head as a test subject which is why I'm trying to find out more. Having more than just a DOT stamp is nice but I'm not familiar with the ones they mentioned. And supposedly they're known for...

    Kali helmets?

    I posted in a different area of the forum then found this area. Anyone know anything about Kali helmets? They look good on paper (marketing) but I've never seen one in person. Kali Motorsports Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    I had some on another bike and the adjustments allowed for more than was functional. [emoji16] I've made it 10k with OEM levers but it'd be nice if they were 1/4" - 3/8" closer. Sure, I could add slack through cable adjustment but I like things snug. Probably will just set it one click from...

    Kali Performance helmets?

    Probably not the right area for this but I don't see anything better... Never heard of Kali before today (well, Kali Linux but that's different...). $350 for a composite full-face helmet ($450 for carbon fiber) which meets DOT, AMA, FIM, CCS, and WERA standards. Self-healing, carbon...

    2019: What did you do to/with your NC700 today?

    Ordered these. Straight from China, I guess. It'll be a month before I see them. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B078JLQ592/ Since it's been a while, I decided pick up A Twist of the Wrist but can't find my copy. So I bought another copy. My wife has a different book (Proficient Motorcyclist, I...
