Looking forward to the pics!!

Did you mean this: http://www.nighthawk750.com/detail/battery.jpg



They have an embedded address thing going on - not technical enough to know what to call it.

That's exactly what I needed; had a NH before, picked up the wrong battery at Wally World, didn't want to make the same mistake again...

Thanks a million.

It's funny that you posted this yesterday. I actually took mine off yesterday afternoon after cinching down my saddle bags a different way (and not a good way). I cracked the plastic towards the rear where the two sides meet, so I took them off and went for a ride. No problems just looks very janky. The battery is all out there and it just looks . . . not put together. I don't think the plastic does the bike any favors in the looks dept but suffice to say I put them back on.

Picked up a 91 today, 13k, very clean with custom saddle and 4-1 exhaust, but I almost shat myself when he pulled this sweet cafe windshield out if the attic after the deal was completed!!!

Nice bike! Yeah, I did not try to get a couple of extra hundred dollars off my bike price for the usable dry-rotted tires, and in return, he put a new gel battery in and let me have a decent Snell helmet, a padded riding jacket, and a heavy duty bike cover. If you try to get every penny you can, you never see the goodies that instead go on Craigslist the day after you leave.

I was just so happy to see a decent bike for sale and jumped on it 20 minutes after it was posted, because the good bikes go fast. And its hard to beat the value of a nice NH 750 for everything you get. I was going to flip mine for a quick sale and get a new Husky 650, but its just so fun and practical, I am going to put a lot more miles on it (and get some dental work instead of a new bike, ha ha).

Nice NH, but I am particularly interested in that windshield. Do you know anything about it?

Not yet, but I should be able to find out something tonight; the PO has record of every service/upgrade performed, just need to find time to go through his stack of receipts. I did see where he had paid 400.00 for the exhaust, 177 for the Memphis Shades windshield in 2006.

Welcome to the forum. That's some cool old iron you have there and it will reliably take you where ever you dare to go.

I hear what you are saying. That does make a difference, but he has a 30 year old bike with less than 10K miles on it I believe. Mine is 20 years old with 15K on it, so I'm replacing the front disk pads immediately just due to time of the abrasive pad material, and after I replace my dry rotted tires/valve stems (they get good mileage though in the mean time, ha ha) my clutch is next. They are sensitive to the lever touch and rev a little high, which could be skill level. But at 15K, it's close enough for a 20 year old bike. Brakes/tires/clutch are time sensitive and in that order of safety for me (in mines condition anyway). And mine has had good oil in it, or it does now anyway :-)

But you got a good point. I just now figured out that you should adjust the chain to the loosest part of the chain SITTING on it to maximize the transmission, chain, and sprockets

Hey dogjaw, you said the new bike is an '01 in one post and a '91 in another. Which is it?

91; here's a pic of her cleaned up with the bullet fairing; I had forgotten how incredibly smooth the Nighthawks are... Next step is replacing the 20 year old fork oil, maybe drop in some Intiminators.
