I'm restoring a 1983 Honda CB650SC Nighthawk. I need a pic of how the battery cables are routed. They seem too short. Anyone have or could take a pic of how the battery cables are routed on their 650 Nighthawk.
Are the cables in question the old ones or did you purchase new ones? What about the battery(old or new)? Terminal location plays a important part in the equation. We need more information to help evaluate your problem.
The cables are the old ones as is the battery. When I hook everything up the cable from the starter relay to the starter goes right accross where the battery slides out. It just seems odd that you have to disconnect that cable to slide the battery out.
Great site for parts and exploded diagrams...thanks. It helps some. It shows which cable goes where but not how the cable going to the starter is routed. I guess it must go right in front of the battery, which means it has to be disconnected whenever the battery is slid out.
I could still use a pic from a Nighthawk owner...any out there?
Yep...It looked like it was a nice one.The guy I got it from low sided it and never fixed it.He left it outside on the side of his garage to rot.2 yrs later it ended up in my garage as a donor parts bike for my 84........
I need the one on the right side. I'll also email you, thanks. As far as the battery cable goes, the pics were great. It looks like the terminal on my starter is up on top and the cable won't reach it unless it cuts across the battery. I see about taking the starter apart and rotating the terminal down like in the pic.
