Question about 1996 Honda CB 750 Nighthawk

1 Answer

I have a 1996 Nighthawk 750 that I got from someone who was given the bike for free. The original owner said that water got in to "something" (unknown) and it wouldnt start because of that. The guy I got it from just had it sitting in his garage and never once tried to start it. So I know for a fact that the battery is dead, which brings to question; can I attemt to jump the bike with a car? Also, where should I start with diagnosing the starting problem?

I do not advise it but jumping it with a dead battery will do no good anyway, if you are going to jump ity with a car, make sure the car is not running

1993 Honda CB 750 Nighthawk repair manual


Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download for viewing or printing.
