    Has anyone tried something like this. Going to a local Walmart and buying a simple bread cutting board and heating it up to mold around the parts of the bottom of your bike to protect certain areas like the oil filter etc. This website shows how this guy did it and thought I'd get some...

    Oil Change. Leaning or upright?

    Ok, the Honda Service Manual says to hold the bike in an "upright position" when checking the oil. Does that go for changing the oil as well? Because there are tons of how to videos on YouTube including of our NC700s where people have their bikes leaning to the side on their kickstands? Also...

    Does anyone know where you can get "simple" Swing Arm Guards? It's hard to believe that someone hasn't produced very simple protective rubber straps that simply clasp onto the rear Swing Arm. I have my NC700 pretty well covered with protection... But protecting the left side Swing Arm is...
