Re: 82 Nighthawk hondaline Luggage Rack Install

agreed, it is pretty ugly and looks a bit "home made." Maybe i'll add a little foam to protect the frame finish.

Re: 82 Nighthawk hondaline Luggage Rack Install

In hindsight the mounting seems really obvious but shipping the u bolts on the wrong bracket really threw me off.

Re: Cylinder Head Temps

I haven't done a full rebuild but I've done the oil pan seal and cleaned the pan and the oil pickup in the process. Since then, my oil has come out pretty immaculate but I also ride less than 800 miles a year, if that. It's not the worst idea to do one of those engine treatment cleaners before switc...

Re: Cylinder Head Temps

Its illegal but I guess if your bike is ABOUT to break down there's an argument to be had! Even the "cagers" around me were asking me what the heck I was doing sitting in traffic like them :lol: I've looked into oil coolers and spin on filter adapters and all that. I would hope that a bike...

Re: Cylinder Head Temps

Thanks for the replies! I had one incident a few years ago as a fairly new rider(and although a competent shadtree mechanic, a novice to motorcycles/carbs/tuning) where I was stuck in stop and go traffic on a highway in the summer for about 20-30 minutes and the bike started overheating to the point...

Cylinder Head Temps

Has anyone ever run a cylinder head temp gauge? The ones that go around the spark plugs? My bike has run reasonably well since I've tuned it up a few years ago, check plugs all the time, nice and gray, snappy throttle, 1100rpm idle, needs a couple of miles of choke before warmed up enough. Installed...

Re: 1982 CB650SC - My First Bike!

when i did my cam cover seal last year, I ended up stripping out the threads of the last bolt in the assembly(even with a small torque wrench!) and its been weeping oil ever since. I didn't like the idea of drilling/tapping/helicoiling in place without removing the cover and came across this on sohc...

Re: Parting out 1981 CB650C

Any idea if that backrest will fit an 82 nighthawk? Is the backrest/luggage rack one piece?
