Hey! I'm new to the site.  I'm new to riding, too.  Here's my new (new to me) cycle~


Right under 16k miles.  It came with the original exhaust, and the already installed VH 4-into-1, two windshields, and two manuals.  I took the sissy bar off..

It was missing mirrors- these are from a 75 Kaw KZ400 (already had)
There was a big rip in the seat- it's been newly upholstered ($50)


I need new tires and front turn signals.

So far, I'm in love with it. banana  What are you guys (and gals) doin to customize / upgrade your bikes?

That's the nice 750 you got there.  welcome to the Forums. While I'm not totally familiar with the 750, I do know that a lot of people sugest the washer mod. Just do a search for it and you'll find it.

Also, if you don't already have some, make sure you got all the riding gear( helmet, boots, pants, jacket, gloves).

Enjoy the wheels and ride safe.

16k is really low miles for a 1991.

I took the sissy bar off..
If the sissy bar was a factory Hondaline rack, those are valuable. Sell on Ebay.

If the prior owner didn't re-jet your bike after the headers, then the suggestion for washer mod is a great idea. the bikes are a bit lean to start with due to emissions compliance, and the header will make it run even more lean.

If it runs strong and you are happy with it, leave it alone.

Hey same bike here. Washer mod is a good idea. In reference to the mods and upgrades for the 750, other than saddlebags and a corbin seat Id agree with bob, go ride it.

You will find our brakes and suspension arent the greatest. A few members have upgraded to better rear shocks,progressive fork springs,and the like. Its a bit costly but I've heard its worth it. I'm just satisfied with my stock nighthawk

Welcome!

Here is what I've done with my latest 750...  http://nighthawk-forums.com/project-logs/season-salvage-rebuild-'91-cb750/

Mods on my 750 have been sidetracked since I got my Ninja.  I drive the NH everyday though as my commuter and should be taking it up to the mountains next weekend.  Looking forward to giving the new suspension a thorough workout.

Suspension and ergo upgrades (Corbin saddle) are #1 on my list.  They directly effect how you meet the bike and how the bike meets the road.

BTW, your clear coat and paint are excellent, especially for a '91.  Take good care of it!
