Engine

No repairs needed at the engine until now ~60k miles - and  after chatting around Honda forums it seems the engine will last forever.

 This is how the engine looks at 60k - clean and nice!

Except some strange noises from a worn cam chain (which seems to be a quite common problem around 60k miles) the engine is bullet proof miles eater mean machine. During my 2 years of riding on the Nighthawk I really enjoyed the service free hydraulic valve adjuster system - no need to do any routine valve adjustment.

The red-line is at 8500 RPM - which makes it a low revving machine with excellent power starting from 3000 RPMs, quite a joy in town where you don't really need a "screaming" engine to turn heads.
