General Motorcycle Discussion / Re: buying a 2002 nighthawk
« Last post by DesignFlaw06 on January 26, 2018, 05:52:25 AM »
Hi I'm a new member, my name is Ed. I'm thinking of buying a 2002 nighthawk. My main concern is can I get parts for it? It has around 13000 miles on it. the picture of it looks good. Is there anything in particular I should look for when I inspect the bike. All help will be welcome, thanks.

Tires for sure.  13,000 miles isn't a lot and reason to be a little suspicious for a 16 year old bike.  It is likely the tires are old.  I think if they are older than 5 years, you should replace them.  Date should be marked on the tire.  Make sure you tell the seller you want to start it cold.  I'd be more suspicious if the bike was already warm when you go look at it.  Also take a look at the chain.  Make sure it is properly lubed and tight.

Parts are fairly easy to get, either from the stealer or ebay.  Several online places to get them as well.

Ironically though, the first available reverse-engineered replacement x-ring for the 700S petcock was only available from Ireland.


Make sure you check in before ordering any parts -- there have been a lot of workarounds developed for the bits that you can't get any more!

Yep the 4 into 4 was a bad idea - they never warmed up enough to remove the water..
Regardless, it is a VERY nice machine.
Thanks for sharing the pic - It brought me back!

It is probably not as nice as the photo looks but it is very nice. These 350's (like similar period 550 and 750's) came with a 4 into 4 exhaust. In order to save weight the 350 pipes were thin and very prone to corrosion. Original or NOS 4x4 pipes are rare and $$$. That is one reason you will see a lot converted to 4 into 2 or 4 into 1.

It a 1993. I screwed up the header of the original post. I will fix the size of those pictures when I get home.
