Nice bike! Enjoyed seeing the pics. I'm a new NH owner, and from PA as well. So far I've only taken mine on one short test ride but already it is obvious the mirrors need some help. How do you like those ebay mirror risers?

I only see the middle picture.

Strange - I still can see all three? Wish we cold just upload pictures.


You're the owner of the pics, and they are probably in your browser cache.  Try using a different browser to check.
You can't upload pics directly to the site because that's what caused the entire database to fry itself several years ago, losing ALL of its content in the process.

Believe all the pics are working now.

Anyway, the loose handlebar part I was referring to I have seen others call the handlebar riser. The left one is more loose than the right one, so I'm thinking there is a problem. Will probably try swapping out bushings, as was suggested earlier.

Hop - Welcome aboard.
Pants is right about the 3 rubber parts that hold your tank steady.
Easy to replace these.
The handlebars are rubber mounted, so there will be some give to them.
If they are actually loose, you may need to replace the rubber fittings there as well.
Bike Bandit online has been a good source to me for OEM parts.

The Clymer manual is pretty good in my opinion.
Good luck.

Thanks!

hppants, thank you for the reply. No, this isn't my first bike, but it's been a number of years since I've had one.

Thanks for the thoughts on the two issues you talked about. I really haven't even had a chance to take the tank off since I got it - been super busy but want to get at it soon.

Regarding the handlebar issue, yes that was a confusing statement. My computer autocorrected handlebar to handbag, and it's taken me a bit to figure out how to even post pictures on this forum. Hopefully everyone can see 3 pictures now.

The handlebar clamp shown in the third picture is what I was referring to that is a bit loose. The single nut at the bottom of the is what I stuck a wrench (17mm i think?) on real quick to see if I could tighten it up any.

I have a Clymer manual showing up soon so I figured I'd just leave it alone for now until I had a reference to look up torque values and go from there. There is a rubber bushing in there as well I thought maybe needs inspected.

Just wanted to introduce myself as I'm sure I'll be poking around various threads looking for info. Just picked up a 2000 NH750 with 23k on it from a local dealer for a pretty good price. I guess the dealer had a hard time selling it due to some dents and rusty spots on the tank. For me, I wanted something easy and affordable and I don't really care what the tank looks like too much right now.

There's a couple things I need to sort out, but overall things are looking good. It does drip some oil after running (not surprised), the tank seems a bit loose and there is a "post" that holds the handbag to the triple tree (not sure the exact name of this part) that seems loose. I tried sticking a wrench on it and it didn't tighten up, so I need to take a closer look. With the weather I've just taken it for a 5 miles test ride and haven't had much time to inspect it too much. I've been away from bikes for about 6 years and am looking forward to some riding again this season.



Tank - most of the damage is apparently from an ill-fitting aftermarket windshield mount


The handlebar clamp in the middle of this photo is the loose mount
