I had trouble at first but after I removed the 2 rubber boots connected to the airbox I was able to remove the carb. I hope to finish by cleaning up the carb next week. I miss riding my 650.

How to sync carbs on a motorcycle
This video demonstrates the procedure to synchronize a carburetor on a 1977
Honda CB550. It is really important, especially for bikes of this vintage,
to synchronize your carbs at the beginning of every riding season or after
any repair or adjustment to the carbs. This bike still needs some work to
be road ready, but it has a lot of potential and is super cafe racer cool.
If you are attempting to do this procedure yourself and have any questions
before you start, feel free to let me know. That's the good thing about
Youtube, FREE INFORMATION FOR ALL!!!!!
EDIT: Here are a few edits I would like to make to this video after
watching it a couple of times.
1. Make sure your carb synch comes after everything else in a normal tune
up. This includes Valve clearances, cam chain tension, spark plug
gap/cleaning, point gap, ignition timing, air filter cleaning/replacement,
and all the air bleed screw settings should be checked.
2. Engine speed for a carb synch should be around 1500rpms if possible.
3. The adjuster screw lockdown nuts should always be re-tightened after
adjustment (I forgot to show it)
1983 Nighthawk 650
This is my 1983 Honda Nighthawk 650. Great bike in excellent condition.
11,900 original miles. It is For Sale. Please contact me if interested.
Honda Nighthawk 750
This was my 1992 Nighthawk (CB750). I rode the bike for several years. I
was very happy with the bike. It was a good, all-around ride. I
eventually sold the bike just to get something a little bigger. I post
this video just for the benefit of anyone who is interested in a Nighthawk.
The bike was as dependable as they come, simple to maintain, and not slow,
either. Gas mileage was typically 45 MPG or higher.
I miss my Nighthawk, and highly recommend one to anyone who is interested.
What a ride it's been!
I miss this bike allot...
I've wanted to make this for a while now. This video begins with some of my
first motovloging moments, and tells the story of my trip to the West this
past April. Most of the footage in this video is new (to you :)
I hope to inspire others to go adventuring by motorcycle. I'm hooked and I
will be doing it again!
If you really wanna see more of any part of the trip, let me know
