Is there something covering the holes that needs to be removed? If anyone has a clear pic of this would be most appreciated.
These can be flipped end for end so you have two positions for the screen. It only makes about an inch difference, but it might help.




Here they are in the upper position.

Thanks! Do these screen mount inserts just pop out to swap their orientation?

You'll get slapped with a user's manual if you carry this on..

Fred,
Why do you have condoms on your turn signals?

Very fertile blinker fluid in these new bikes.

That is not my bike. It is a new one that I was setting up out of the crate for the dealer. I posted pics of that process a long time ago on ADV. Not sure if it was in this thread or another.

I found my setup assembly pics on pages 153 and 154 of this thread. Also some pics of installing some of the Honda accessories on pages 164, 167, 176, and 180.

Well that's not nearly as interesting as a story about condoms on turn signals but I guess it will work

Talked to our "local" Honda dealer. The Province of Manitoba insurance has designated these as "sport" bikes, and the dealer isn't even bringing them in. Not in the market but, C'MON MAN! NC700 a "sport" bike? Looked positively benign to me??
