My 2003 has 40K, I put all but the first 770 miles on it.
I would trust my bike even at 150K to take my yearly trips on.

So all of this talk of nighthawk sales has me wondering. Have I priced mine right to sell?

Short story:
1992, sold new in 1995
I bought it from the original owner in 1997, with 17k miles.
Currently 63500 miles

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Seems high. Id sell the luggage setup separately... the givi is very sought after.

FWIW, I picked up my 95 with 13k on it for $2500. And I've seen better deals than that out there. Part of it depends on what else is for sale at the moment.

Does anybody know where I can order new carburetor drain screws for a 2001 NH 750??

It seems that from my Internet searching that you have to order the entire float bowl assembly at $66.00 each, and the gasket kits at $33 each (just so I can harvest 1 small o-ring)

Surely, somebody just carries the drain screws and the little o-rings?

They look like this...

Have you tried taking one of the other screws out and matching it up at Lowes or Home Depot? Harbor Freight sells a metric o-ring selection for practically nothing. The smallest o-ring in the selection is 1.9mm ID.

My Nighthawk has 42K, runs like a new one, it is the most troublefree (100%) street bike that I have had.

I pulled all four out. The o-rings look good. The screws, however, are not your standard screw. They have a tappered end.
They look like this:



I found these on Randakk's page, but I cannot confirm they fit post-1983 Nighthawks, they look very close: http://www.randakks.com/DOHC%20Four%20Page.htm#4

Looking for a Hondaline backrest for 1991+ NH750. If you have one, let me now. I will pay top $$ for it.

A guy I know just got one. I'll check and see where he bought it.

Think it was from ebay. I'll find out how much it was, too.

Thanks for your comments. I lowered the price a bit. I'll wait a while before I separate the givi stuff.

Regarding backrests for the NH, my friend says he bought it on ebay for $150. He has seen them from $100 on up but they are rusty at $100.00.

No way to tell by miles....check it before every ride,but don't tighten it till it's really loose.
Looser will last longer than tighter,but does lead to sloppy shifts.
Lube at the end of a ride,while the chain is still hot.
