hey guy, it depends on what you are looking for. if your looking for a lot of power look else where. but if you looking for a torquey little twin that really handles great the hawk is the one. i had one that i bought new back in 90,that i promptly ripped apart and threw every part that i could find at it. the engine was stroked and bored. with 13:1 compression ti rods valve work and ported heads put it this way every thing! i put like 20,000 into it my buddy with a zx11 couldnt get away from me . but in the long run it was a pain in the ass to keep up. ended up wishing i kept it stock. i actually would like another myself . to keep along side its bigger brother. if your looking for something with power lokk at the sv i hear they are pretty sweet ,but im a honda man wont buy anything but.

I hear ya on the power but if I was worried about that I would have traded up from my 1/4 liter on the street, ya feel me!~

I'm looking for a bike I can mod like the old cafe racers and I found a Hawk set up like that. I did find some info on electrical problems but nothing specific.. hear anything like that

Thanx for the input

as far as the elec probs if you buy one pull all the connectors clean and apply dielectric grease and your fine. the only prob i had was a noisy chain. and that is usually caused by neglect. all in all it is very dependable . i put over 50,000 on mine before i parted it out. by the way i put a 900rr front end on mine and it was awesome. i still have that front end im gonna put it on my superhawk.
