    removing rear plastic - behind rear seat

    I need to get the passenger seat hinge out (or at least accessible) so that I can replace the broken part. I pulled out the 2 obvious bolts holding the small plastic part behind the passenger seat, and couldn't get it off. Suggestions, or an alternative means of access?

    Brake and plate light out

    I've found that when one filament fails it often wiggles around, ends up touching the other filament, and the other fails in short order

    Building NC700X suspension for sport/track riding?

    you might look into Ranger Point Precision fork upgrade for the NC the Ranger Precision stuff too. It's more expensive but, for street use, I like the idea of extra suspension travel. Around here I see more racers running Penske than Ohlins, but both are good.

    Lost a bolt ...what size is it I need to find?

    Is that not a special fender bolt? I agree that it's M6x1.0, 14mm sounds reasonable.

    36 is VERY small for a rear sprocket: the smallest I've seen stock on any bike is 38. Here in the US, stock gearing for a normal transmission is 16/43 and for DCT 16/39. I'm seeing that the later DCTs were 17/39. I thought I'd read of people changing the gearing on DCTs without a problem...

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

    Yes, it's a skeletonized steel sprocket Given the cost and minimal weight savings vs Superlite I'm not a fan

    would u pay $1000 to avoid a skinned knee??

    I agree that gloves are #2 on the list of gear. I've ridden down the street wearing shorts, t shirt, sandals... helmet, gloves.

    would u pay $1000 to avoid a skinned knee??

    Yep. When people say they think jeans do anything, I remind them of playing on a playground in elementary school. I imagine that everyone fell down and skinned their knee through their jeans at least once. And that was with much less weight on it, at awfully low speed.

    Brake Rotor Question

    I don't see how sticky pistons could cause pulsing (unless they caused the rotor to overheat and warp)
