True, except they built that bike, more or less, up until 2003. Pretty good run. No problems that I'm aware of. Begs the question why they couldn't have done hydraulic valves on the cb1100. Honda obviously knows how to do it. I wouldn't think cost is that much of a factor since the Nighthawk 750 was always a pretty low priced bike. Certainly simplifies maintenance and lowers the cost of ownership.
