New to the forum, picked up my 82 450 nighthawk last fall and spent the winter getting it road worthy. Now on to the cosmetic side of the coin.

Thanks longdistance for moving my thread, I’m still figuring out how this forum is set up. Here are so pictures of its current look with some extra soft bags for commuting from a v-strom that were sitting around. I’m working on some canvas saddle bags for a more fitting look. Also trying to decide between replacing the plastics with metal to match the tank or just remove them and reposition the electrical to open up the under the seat window.

Opening up the under seat area really isn't possible w/o removing the air box. Read the Pod filters sticky in the SOHC Fuel section to see what you'll be up against if you go that route. For reliability you're better off leaving that stock.

It had pods when I got it and it was a rejetting nightmare. It has actually been stuttering at 7000rpm so I think it needs a little more tinkering.
