CB650 Custom

Just completed my Bobber build so it is now time to sell my CB650 Custom. It is a 1979/80 model. MOT until April 2017. Riden daily with no engine issues. One of the fork seals has decided to start weeping which can be seen in photo and will need a new rear tyre within a couple of hundred miles. Genu...

Fork swap

G'day all. I got a 1982 CB650 Nighthawk and a 1980 CB650 Custom. I have a spare Nighthawk front end. Could it be a straight swap onto the Custom as I would like to have twin disc and air forks on the custom as it is my daily ride. Also need to know how much oil goes in them air forks if anyone knows...

Re: resetting trip odometer 82 650 nighthawk. need info

You are correct in your assumption, you do just push the button on the '82 Nighthawk. It could be you need to strip them down to sort out why yours does not. On my 3rd '82 Nighthawk now and all have been push button re-set. My '81 cb650 Custom has the knob which turns. Totally different clocks.

Re: Hot starting issue

Hi. Thanks for the welcome. Glad to be accepted to your site. Have owned a CB650 since 1984. 2 Nighthawks and my new old Custom. As to the valves, they were done on the loose side as I have found trouble in the past with the old slip fit method. So I know they are fine. I have been doing a bit of ch...

Hot starting issue

Gday, I have a 1980 CB650 Custom which runs purrfectly but when hot it doesn't like re-starting. Leave it until it has cooled down and starts no problem. Had to replace the starter solenoid as it had melted all this black shit all over my frame. Any ideas as to why this is happening. Battery is fine...
