Under the Hood: 1983 Honda CB550 Nighthawk

Check out my Primary Channel: (http://www.youtube.com/gurilla47) Check out the ASP's Blog: (http://autoshowcaseproject.blogspot.com/) Looking at a 1983 Honda 550CB Nighthawk or CB550 owned by Tim. It just occurred to me that I presented a few incorrect informational errors about the motorcycle. The Annotations will have the correct info. Under the Seat: I4 572CC DOHC Air-Cooled with 4 (27mm ) Keihin CV Carburetors, a 6-Speed Manual Gearbox Trans., and Drive Shaft Information: The 550 Nighthawk was a "One Year Wonder." Low maintenance, but high performance. Stock/OEM Performance: 64 bhp @ 9500 rpm 36.5 lb.-ft. @ 8000 rpm Stock/OEM Timed Performance: 12.64 sec. @ 102.27 mph in the Quarter Mile 0-60mph 4.8 sec.

I've worked on a few of these in the past year and the all exhibit the same problems: head gasket oil leak and low compression due to carbon build up on the engine valves. Taking it all apart, some soda blasting, and new gaskets will restore the compression and get rid of the leaks.
