Repair manual for Honda cb750 Nighthawk

I must admit that although I like working on my CB75o Nighthawk, I’m not the most brilliant technical guy. In a way, not knowing how to work on your bike is not necessarily a big problem, unless you start taking the parts out and never know how to put them back and you’re left without working bike.

That’s why I really needed a repair book for my old CB750 that is easy enough, including detailed pictures on the most usual operations you could perform in the backyard. There aren’t many manuals around for this particular bike, but lucky enough, the one that there is, is very good: Honda: Cb750 Nighthawk, 1991-1993 and 1995-1999 (Clymer Motorcycle Repair Manuals) I’ve already did some maintenance on the bike using the book: changing the chain and sprockets , spark plugs, or oil change. Now I’m heading to front suspension maintenance.

The book is good in 2 ways: 1) parts inventory – you can find what tires, sparks, oil or anything else you could fit on the bike and 2) the pictures help you localize the things on the bike. The repair instructions are step by step, and the good news is that the instruction refer mostly to regular tools available in any garage! So, even if you don’t have specialised tools, you might be able to do most of the operations and save a buck.

The repair manual gets you through the following:

  • periodic maintenance
  • engine
  • clutch and transmission
  • fuel system
  • electrical system
  • wheels, tires and drive chain
  • front and rear suspension
  • brakes
  • body

I’ve picked the book from Amazon, fast and clean delivery, even in Europe.


Blogs about motorcycles

If you got to this blog, I assume you probably would like to see some other blogs about bikers and their motorcycles as well. I’m reading a few as well, so let’s mention a couple of them:

  • Motorcycle Blog by Silverwinger – “Motorcycle blogs have no incredible stories, no sudden plot twists, it is all about the ride and the anticipation of the ride. So we begin with an old guy from Castor, Alberta Canada with an old 1981 GL 500 Honda Interstate riding and blogging about motorcycles, motorcycle camping, and the motorcycle way of doing things.” That’s an “open road blog” – nice scenery, nice bikes, nice folks. So if you want to get the feeling of freedom and cruising on the open road, “Logan Pass-Going to the Sun Highway“. Hope to see some other riding stories from him soon, to keep me warm during the winter!
  • Helmet Hair – Motorcycle Blog – “Wearing a motorcycle helmet tends to mess up one’s hair. Removing the helmet usually leaves hair sticking out in all directions. This is called helmet hair”. Great introduction line! And the blog is great in bringing interesting news for any biker – shows, trips, special bikes and everything else.
