Official Nighthawk thread

Okay Nighthawk owners, come out of the closet! Let's have our own thread to celebrate one of the most underated bikes ever. Post you're pics and any Nighthawk discussions. Here's my new (to me) 2003 750

Done so far:
EBC HH brakes, Russell Stainless lines, exhaust baffles drilled (see nighthawk750.com) GPS added, Uni filter

Things on order:
New tank (mine is dented), 14T front sprocket, carb jets and shims,

Near future: Progessive Suspension shocks and springs.

Sport, sport-tour, commute...does it all.

No pics...haven't scanned them in.

Best bike in the world, IMHO. I love mine dearly. It's been parked for a while. One of these days I'll need to refurb it.

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm nuts about the SC's.

Igor, my '83 CB550SC, before I dumped him on a road slicked with rain and crap from diesel buses running there all day.



Now sporting big CB750 turn signals and a round headlamp.

Note the high-tech helmet lock.

That red 750 you've got is just purty!

So tomorrow night, I'm gonna get cracking on modding the Nighthawk seat.

Inspiration:


Poor photoshop comparison:



I'm not trying to turn the bike into something it's not, but what's up with bike manufacturers and their forward slanted seats? Maybe it's the dirtbiker in me, I dunno. Either way, that Guzzi is my goal......is a much flatter setup, we'll see how it pans out (though the Honda doesn't lend itself to straight lines). I'll make sure my brother is around, as his eye for details is much sharper than mine (as is his artistic eye).

clutch question

Hey guys just came over since NH forum seems to be gone. I am about to replace my clutch (92 750) with a Barnett kit this weekend and was curious if anyone had any helpful info/advise they could share?

I know there is a special tool needed at one point and I actually have one that Loki on the NH forum made. Got it in the mail the day before the site went down. I also have a Clymer coming in the mail tomorrow, so hopefully that should help out. But other than the kit (plates and springs) do I need any other parts?

This is the first time of doing any work on the bike (other than changing the oil/filter) so hopefully I should be able to tackle it without too much difficulty.

I also have a New Zealand sheep skin seat cover, and while I love my Corbin, the sheep skin seat cover is still used for long hauls because it lets my a$$ breath.

Nice bikes, lots of 'em here in Japan. I've always wondered why Honda didn't put a shaft drive on 'em like the CBX750 Horizon.

Nice bike, hmmm those shocks are the same length and have adjustable dampening, might have to visit ebay.The earlier Nighthawks seem to be much less of a budget bike and had alot of nice parts, i.e. gear indicator, dual discs, rear disc, shaft drive, adjustable sus pension,more aluminum less steel. BTW is that a Campbell's soup can up on the fairing?
