Iancruza,
Nice catch!  That is definitely where it came from.  Thanks!!

Thanks for your opinion, mollusc.  I was thinking the same thing-  that it doesn't look like a Honda oem part, along with it being brass.  I bought the bike from the original purchaser's family, who knew nothing about the bike, other than it had sat in a garage for years.  Hence, the reason why I've done all the work on it.  I've checked the schematics of all the parts of the bike, as well as the shop manual, and have found nothing that looks like it.

I've done alot of work recently on my 86 Nighthawk S.  I'm just about done putting it all back together and unfortunately I have no idea where this small D shaped brass bushing/collar goes.  I remember removing it, but for the life of me can't remember from where.  It was with a bunch a bolts that was with the tool box and rectifier, but I don't see anywhere, where it might go.  I can't even narrow down the location on the bike where it might go, being that I've done the following to it in the last 2 months:


installed new tires
rebuilt both master cylinders
rebuilt front calipers
rebuilt the clutch slave cylinder
installed new brake/clutch lines
rebuilt front forks
rebuilt carbs
installed new battery
removed the cowl and put all new bulbs in the instrument panel
removed final drive and lubed damper, splines, gear box
rebuilt rear brakes
rebuilt fuel petcock.


Thanks.

Check my 6/19/2014 post in luggage and add-on equipment.  It lists the parts and Honda part numbers.

Ride the Dragon in NC and see what category your NH falls into.  I remember the first KSL we did with this forum, we had a dozen Nighthawks and it seemed like each bike was in a different category.

Fascinating. My 1st bike was a sports bike and 2nd a cruiser, so both standard and tourer / sports tourer are new to me...just tiring to wrap my head back around it all, having just returned to motorcycles after an unintentional decade break. :)

Anything noteworthy, and Nighthawk appropriate, ride-wise in Southeastern, PA? (I don't get to NC much, these days, unfortunately).

Ride up PA Route 32 along the Delaware River all the way up to the Delaware Water gap or beyond.  Great ride!

Ugly.

Thanks for your advice RJ CB650.  This base gasket is a bear!!!

Thanks for the info Drdubb.  Does it take alot of heat? I know that's a subjective question, but I figured I'd ask it anyway.  I'm just concerned about the heat damaging seals, bearings, etc., in the crankcase, as well as the alternator.  I also don't want to burn off the black engine paint.

I'm in the process of rebuilding the top end of my 03 Nighthawk 750.  I'm trying to remove the base gasket without gouging the aluminum. I'm using Permatex foaming gasket remover with a plastic razor blade, but it isn't working very well at all.  Anyone have any suggestions they have found that works?  Thanks.

I agree.  Keep it the way it is!  It looks great!!!!  I am an original owner of an 82 NH450, and still love riding it.

Good luck with the sale, but more importantly, that you have a quick and uneventful recovery!!!

Is that the one for sale on ebay? If it is, sorry that you're getting rid of it.  It's a beautiful Nighthawk and you did a great job making it so.

I've been riding a couple different Nighthawks for the last 33 years.  Never had a front end shake problem whatsoever.  In fact, actually no problems at all... Sounds like a tire imbalance issue to me as well...

Can't remember the NHF member's name that had 46 700's as he rarely posted.  I remember when he first joined the forum and stunned us all with his huge collection.  Like he was trying to corner the market on NH 700s.


I don't remember his name either, but he also had every piece of Hondaline gear that was produced for them in at least one form or another.  He said that he had to keep working out deals with his neighbours to rent space in their garages to store them all.
I think his name was moparjoe.

You can still buy them new for about $120.00 for the 91-03 NH750.  Check out Partzilla for a decent price.  It's money well spent.  I use mine all the time.  Prior to 91, I think you have to go the ebay route.

So jealous!!!  The salt and grit are just about washed off the roads here in north/central NJ, and now they're saying another 3-6 inches of snow on Friday.  Looks like I'm not going to ride for another 3-4 weeks, at the earliest, unless we get rain to wash it all off, it warms up abit, and they start filling in the huge pot holes that are everywhere.  My town loves to throw down the salt/grit/sand on the roads.  It's been chilly as well, except for a day or two when we barely broke 50, but the roads were still messed up.

Great looking bike.  Good luck with it!!!

I bought a brand new oem one, 5 months ago from partzilla.  It was around $115 or so, which was well worth it.  Check their website.

Agreed.  The mirrors would be the last of your concerns...  My Nighthawks are oem, but I like it!

Beautiful scenery and great pics.  You're very lucky.  My SOQS considers camping to be a 4 star hotel instead of a 5 star.  She's a city girl.  No way would I ever get her in a tent or stay at a campground!!!
