Chain Guard

Anyone out there have an extra chain guard for a '00 Nighthawk 750? I was doing some recon for this weekends project(s) and realized that mine does not have one. Thanks y'all!!!

new owner(s)

Just wanted to say hello and show off my wifes 07 CB250. She got it today for her B-Day. Anyway, we are looking for accessories, like bags (tank and saddle), windshield, especially new tire choices... things like that. If anyone out there has some info that would be great!

That sure is a good look'n bike. But the one that caught my attention is the TT bike hanging on the wall. You must just like being on 2 wheels reguardless of how they're powered like myself.

Looks like a Quintana Roo to me, so more likely to be a triathlon bike rather than a TT bike (we could turn this thread into the 650 vs 700 argument thread, if this was a different forum )

The 250 does look like a great bike though.

Work will soon (tm) begin on my 450 nighthawk project, links to a build thread if there is one will be up

your new nighthawk

I sent a pm, but not sure if it went through. I just sold my Nighthawk (no boo's please!!!) and have several things that you mentioned. Saddlebags, tank bag, sprokets, riding pants..etc. Yes, I replaced the bike

Very good! But I have to admit... those are also my WIFES bikes. Mine are on the other wall.. Cervelo P2C and Cannondale Rush. We both do triathlons and mtb. My first tri bike was a 650 Kestrel Airfoil. Nice bike.

PM received and returned thanks, send pics!

That isn't what caught my eye in that photo if we're admitting things here... but, yeah, the bicycles are pretty cool, too.

No offense intended Lulu7404 - nice catch.

haha

Funny Mambo, the first thing she said when I was reading the posts about her bikes was "nobody said anything about me!"
She's a keeper.
This is her real love... moto's are a recent interest because of me.

OMG, why didn't you post that earlier?!

Horse-girls are crazy - I suggest dumping her immediately for your own sanity.

I'm serious.

I'll never date another.

Wow, and she had so much potential too...

I am so sorry for your predicament.

preaching to the choir!

But seriously, in the almost 8 years we have been together, she has judged more than competed. I can tell you though that the "crazy" starts with the parents of them when they are little. My wife tells me stories all the time about parents griping about why their kid didn't win or whatever. BUT, horse people are a different breed for sure. Horses make me itch.
Hijack over...

What are some favorite tires for the little 250's?

That 250 will be a fun bike, If you find yourself needing alittle more power, you can raise the needle in the carb with some washers.

Cry cb250

great little bike Lulu. My wife had one for 1 1/2 yrs. Never did much for accessories accept OEM luggage rack/back rest. Also did the washer on the carb needle jet which improved starting and the lean mixture like Rabbit stated. Also improves "cold running" immensely...no need to run with choke. I'd recommend a MSF course. Sometimes my wife regrets selling the baby hawk and getting the low seat/suspension BMW f650 twin. If you feel the need to upgrade the front drum brake, the Rebel 250 has disc brakes and is a bolt-on procedure.

I recently put some bridgestone spitfire S11 tires on my 450 nighthawk and they work great and are some of the cheapest tires available. Havent really seen any people complain about then on the internets either.

Can someone please refer me to a place to get details on shimming the needle? It does run super lean, almost to the point that I thought I was going to have to take apart carb for good cleaning.

MSF completed Sunday. I am also very interested in where to find the specs for the Rebel disc conversion. The brakes are ok, but I have not attempted an emergency stop situation to really test them... I also fear better brakes with the tires that are on it... I don't mind paying for good tires... This is my wife after all
As far as getting rid of it... her dream bike (so far) is a Bonneville. She has mentioned not selling the little CB and using it with our travel trailer for vacations... light enough to throw on a bumper bike holder.
