    Time to say goodbye.

    The NC was a fantastic moto even after all the suspension mods I've done to it but the more I drove it everyday on my 200 mile round trip commute the more I wanted out of the bike. I've been looking at an adventure bike that had more power, cruise control, traction control, ABS, and reliability...

    Suzuki GSXR shock....

    After finding out that I have a non OEM shock already installed on my bike, the question is what shock is it? Will after some drunk research on the interweb the closest shock that resembles the one installed on my NC is from a 2011-2017 Suzuki GRXR 600-750 OEM shock. WTF? The bikes rear end does...

    Suspension overhaul done!

    Worth the overhaul, no more hard suspension jarring on crappy roads. Fork emulator plus 3 pot caliper, and stainless brake line definitely makes the bike feel better when stopping, although the master cylinder could be replaced. And there was no need for me replace the rear shock with the one...

    Is the factory rear shock for the 12 NC non-adjustable, cause mine has them? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    45T sprocket installed

    I'm liking it, speedo is off by 3mph with 150/70/17 rear shinko 705 tire. Puts the rpms at the perfect powerband IMO. Haven't checked mpgs yet, stock cruising at 75mph I was getting around 57-58mpgs, so will see how much I lose.... Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    Fleabay exhuast mounted.

    Waited 2 months for the exhaust to arrived coming from Hong Kong. Paid a total price of $82. Suprised by the quality of the welds, even came with extra tabs for the springs, and fit was spot on. Sounds great with the silencer off. Yes, I used lacing wire, I could not get the damm springs on. Had...
