Re: no space between intake rocker arm and cam lobe to fit feeler gauge

as per the book 3 (and 2) is done at 2 diff rotations. In truth the Mark dont matter as long as your off the lobe. really?? Somehow I distrust that advice, from my experience small fractions of millimeters off can be disastrous. Distrust all you want. I"m a moron just trying to steer you wrong...

Re: Anyone have pods with an 82 Nighthawk 650(CV carbs/4 to 4 exhaust) ?

I did nothing it just worked. ran them first with stock 4-4 and then 4-1. ran good on the street. Then started drag racing it and dropped a few sizes in jets and got better. But I am at 5000 ft elevation.

Re: Anyone have pods with an 82 Nighthawk 650(CV carbs/4 to 4 exhaust) ?

I ran pods on my 81. Mostly the same carb. 4-1 header. I think {but Im a maroon) pods are easier and more forgiving to do pods on than pd carbs.
PS dont tell honda your changing it!!!

Re: Dropping the exhaust?

seems to me there are some bolts that go up to the frame underneath. And it is all one part. All 4 pipes and 2 muffs. I remember it being a pain in the ass on the 84 i parted out but that was several years ago.

Re: gas tank

All 80 customs had single disk front comstars. I have 3. Yours even has the standard rear shocks not the customs.
The only shorty 4-2 there are is aftermarket slipons.

They did make a STANDARD model also all 3 years that was a 4-2.

Re: Pipes and exhaust

any 4-4 sohc 650 will fit. 80 and 81 customs had them to. I have 2 extra sets in but yes shipping would be a lot. My 80 650 Custom has 4 into 2 as standard but it also had spoked wheels so I think it was one of the first 650 Customs. so it is probably not a custom. or someone swapped them out. In 8...
