Re: Strange noise. Is it normal?

Interesting to hear about hydraulic tappets. CBX750 had them as far as I remember. Did all 650 Nighthawk years have them? Whatever, hydraulic tappets explain the whole thing perfectly: As long as the oil is cold, everything is fine. When it is warm, viscosity is lower and pressure goes down so your ...

German motorcycle assurance prices in the eighties were quite high. Some dealers even wrote down the insurance price next to the sale price (one year third party insurance alone was about 20% of the new sale price of a motorcycle :shock: ). The step from below and above 50hp was about a factor of tw...

Re: Just got my new Hookers!!!

Hi, I am sorry I have no idea of this special exhaust. If you do not get any detailed info on that, you will have to find out carb/airbox modifications for yourself.
