OptionXIII's 650: Back for more
« on: June 02, 2014, 08:50:27 PM »
Guess someone pushed the reset button on accident, so I'll start a new account.

I was Option13 previously, my new username is still said the same way so no big deal there. Here's my '84 Nighthawk 650, Naia. I bought it with 18,069 miles almost 4 years ago, and 39,000 miles is fast approaching.

I've installed a 18" V45 Sabre front wheel (with radial tire) and rotors, Race Tech front springs and Ricor Intiminator cartridge emulators (TRAC disabled), stainless steel braided brake lines, Progressive Series 12 rear shocks 0.25" taller than stock, a UNI air filter, and Hondaline engine guards and luggage rack.

Other nic-nacs include a permanent voltmeter, mirror risers, and a hard wired headlight cut off switch. I'm working on getting a matching V45 rear wheel on the bike, and maybe someday installing a set of Jardine slip ons I snagged on eBay with a Dynojet jet kit to match.

It's fast and feels like an extension of my body on a twisty road. If I wear this one out I plan on buying another 650 and swapping the good bits over.

Hey Option, great pictures! Nice to see old ' names' show up on the ' new ' forum again.
I do hope that all the old information from the original Forum hasnt been completely lost, there were so many great stories and tech infos-
