  1. Motorcycle Repair
    Hello all, I have completed my rebuild of my Nighthawk 700s, at least I thought. Whenever it fires up and runs it makes this horrible noise, almost like the timing chain is scraping against something or is loose and is flying out and hitting something. However I took the chain tensioner out...

    I'm new to forums and new to motorcycles. I just bought a 1993 Honda CB750 Nighthawk, and after a bit of riding I'm noticing it won't shift to first gear unless I'm going 15 mph or slower. Is this normal? Any suggestions for a fix?

    Unfortunately, it seems that I've come across some electrical problems while I was moving my bike. It seems the tarp that I was using to cover it decided it would rather fray than do it's job, and the end result became it getting wrapped around my rear turn signals and ripping them off. Now I...

    anyone know if an 83 cb650 gas tank is the same as the 82, i know they changed a lot of things on the 83, not sure if that includes the gas tank, are they about the same or completely different. I'm rebuilding an 82 cb650 nighthawk and want to try to keep it as original as possible, so also is...

    I got this nighthawk through a trade. The guy said he broke a key off in the ignition and he but t up the connectors trying to put a new one on. I need to know what the 3 brown wires do and also where to get those connectors to go into the cdi box.

    Hey there! I just bought my first bike, a Honda Nighthawk 250 '06 Half way through my ride(going about 60mph) I started slowing down and couldn't speed back up. Now the engine runs, you can shift into first and the bike will start to go forward a little bit with the clutch all the way out...

    Hi Amigos, I have a 1992 Honda Nighthawk 750 I bought used a few months ago. This afternoon when I got ready to ride home, I did everything (lifted kickstand, turned on fuel, turned key in ignition, put bike into neutral and clicked engine switch to "run") then hit the starter button. There...

    Hello this is concerning a leak in what i believe to be the cover of the engine block on my honda nighthawk 550 83. Picture included. There seems to be a rubber or adhesive seal that has come off and the leak is only around the very left and right side of the cover. Is there an easy fix for...

    I rode up to see the local elk herd tonight. Finally, they were out and about! I feel like we bonded because my mirrors...they sort of look like antlers. Haha. :tongue:

    I have a really n00b but important/urgent question...for some reason, even though the bike started fine last night when I got it home, it wouldn't start tonight. Turned over, seemed like it was "trying" to start, then eventually it stopped turning over and further attempts to press the engine...

    Hi y'all, I'm looking for my first bike and am considering a 1991 Honda Nighthawk 250. Seller says the bike is in good shape mechanically: recently serviced, new oil, new spark plugs, new air filter, with a brand new battery, and it's been kept in a garage. Extras include touring bags, a helmet...

    My first bike was a 1982 Honda Nighthawk 650, I then sold it for a 2000 Honda Shadow 750. Is there anything that is modern (2003 - 2007) or equivelint to the old Honda Nighthawk. I saw that they made the Nighthawk still but its a 250cc. I would like the trade my shadow for somthing more new. I...

    I fully understand not getting a 600cc+ sportbike for my first bike. However, I'm curious if there is a distinction between sportbike and a non-sport bike (cruiser, etc). For instance, I've found a lot of 1984-1986 Honda Nighthawks for good prices on craigslist but those are 600-700cc bikes...

    This 82 nighthawk650 has been sitting for a year or two and when the key turns on, all the electrical components work. However, when I hit the start button the lights dim and a 'click' occurs. Has anybody else had similar problems and if so what did you do to turn that 'click' into an actual...
  20. Sport Bike As First Bike
    The Nighthawk is the exact type of motorcycle that I'm looking for... but unfortunately it's not available here in Canada. I love how it's more British / old fashioned style (rather than sport or cruiser). I'm looking for something like this, that is also small, low to the ground, easy to...
