Pretty stoked, as I'd been itching to get back to the Pagoda and re-shoot her (my 92 CB750 NH), with Targa's & Givi's installed.

How far is the Pagoda from you?  Great photo background.

Today I finished installing my new headlight bulb and socket, buttoning it up a bit, in the process (while also realizing I'm missing my headlights dust protector).



If you've ever experienced the sudden loss of your headlight's illumination on your 'late model' Nighthawk, you may want to click and scroll through here, down to "Reply #3," for my findings:

Today I installed an economical, black, aluminum kickstand enlarger with stainless steel hardware too, (as suggested by fellow NHF members).

Where did you find a kickstand foot enlarger to fit a Nighthawk?

I see you've just posted three times to the NHF boards so far, so welcome!

For this mod, I actually followed a couple other NHF member's lead, which you can read more about, in this NHF thread:

http://nighthawk-forums.com/index.php/topic,2558.msg28495.html#msg28495

On that note, I have yet to see a kickstand enlarger on-line that's truly made specifically for a NH, as-is. They all seem to take some sort of adapting, but I'm quite happy with mine and have no complaints, otherwise. I've been able to easily park her in grass, gravel, dirt, etc., without issue...and just plasti-dipped everything black, to blend it into the rest of the bike. I used all stainless hardware with  the aluminum plate, so rust is thankfully a non-issue, too. Hope this helps.

P.S. - Almost forgot; See also:  http://nighthawk-forums.com/index.php/topic,2557.msg27772.html#msg27772

Thanks! And yes, I'm new to the forum, Nighthawks, and motorcycles. I also have a gravel driveway ....

Okay, so she's filthy, but stoked for my first ride with my new-to-me, Corbin "Gunfighter and Lady" leather seat / saddle installed today!

Thanks DesertDragon & oilfield_trash!

Took her out tonight, to enjoy my new-to-me Corbin and recently re-adjusted handlebars.

BEAUTIFUL ride, even as the rains rolled in. Worth it.

Today my ($11.99 eBay) pair of 10mm black anodized CNC mirror riser extender adapters arrived, which was a quick, 10-15min. install. Pretty stoked to soon test'em out!

Tonight I excitedly installed the black anodized CNC, 1" up, 1.25" back, handlebar rider spacer/setbacks, (to better accommodate my recently installed Corbin). My set arrived via eBay today, (for $39.95+Free S&H).

(Sorry I don't have better pics [shot the install pic late tonight, in my garage], but wanted to quick post here, before I forgot).

So, did you have to finagle the brake hose?

I'm new to all this two wheel stuff.  Loving it obviously thought!  I'm curious what, if any, advantages there are to the lower scoop you installed on your NH?  I like the look but can't think of what "good" it does for the ride other than looking good.
Your bike looks great by the way, well except the basket. hehe I thought the milk man drove  a truck.

Thankfully no, I did not. Took her out for a post-install test run tonight, and am happy to report no issues with lines or cables and she's never felt better, UJM-wise, either.

Haha, fair enough. The basket was just an experiment, as I've only actually sported it once so far...but hey, it works, lol.

Honestly, as far as the lower scoop goes, I just really wanted it to tie in the over all look which Targa had in mind when designing their incredible headlight fairing.

That said, here's what another NH owner's own take on'em is:

"...As the name implies (spoiler) they were meant to provide additional downforce on the front end. Help keep the bike planted to terra firma as the speed increases. Also provides additional cooling to lower part of the engine but that is not it's main purpose. Looks cool depending on your point of view." —John McClain (10/28/07)

I have a great way to add down force to the bike: ride on curvy roads at high speeds!  ridn2

There's also the cheeseburger approach if you wanna add some downforce to your bike...

Pretty stoked, as I'd been itching to get back to the Pagoda and re-shoot her (my 92 CB750 NH), with Targa's & Givi's installed.

As many times that I've been to Reading, I only saw the pagoda from a distance. One of these days I'll have to get a closer look. Nice bike to.

Thanks! Well, if you do ever venture back to Pagoda territory, ya'minus well grab a Pretzel too, while you're at it.

I went through Reading about a year ago on the way to a birthday celebration in Pottsville. Did get to stop at Cabelas in Hamburg on the way back.
