Just so we're on the same page here, let's look at this exploded view:

I assume you mean the bolts that are #14 in the illustration, right?

The torque on these isn't much, it's only 6 - 9 ft-lb (72 - 108 in-lb)

    You should be able to install the gasket dry.

SOURCE: 1993 honda nighthawk has no power. I put a new

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

With the indulgence of DickCanFixIt...

Almost always, in instances such as you have described, the main 30Amps fuse of the 93 CB750 (F2P Retro) would have blown. The main fuse is located along with the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the + cable from the battery terminal.

Additionally, once power has been restored, you may want to check the regulator and CDI as they are electronic and therefore prone to damage on reverse polarity.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Hi l got a 84 nighthawk 700sc cant get the clutch to bleed l just put in a new kit in the master cylinder.


Loosen the banjo bolt on the clutch master cylinder, Put a plastic sheet and a rag under the banjo, pump the lever a couple of times till DOT 3/4 brake fluid starts pouring out past the sealing washers. You have now gotten the air out of the master cylinder. Tighten the banjo bolt, bleeding the lines should now be easy.

I purchased a 1983 Honda Nighthawk 750 need to know how to access the battery Forgive my ignorance, but I am new to motorcycles in general. Thanks


On your 1983 CB750SC you will have to remove your side covers. Be careful to put a fingers on both sides of the side cover tabs (a finger on either side of the side cover pin) when pulling off the side covers . They can break off easily on this model. Locate the two bolts holding the back of the seat down and take them off with a 12mm socket. Lift the back of the seat, pull it towards the back of the bike, and lift it off. The battery is underneath the driver seat and lifts straight up.
