Honda CBX motor - exposed cutaway view

The beast exposed, showing the general layout of the internal workings. Power flows from the crankshaft by a hy-vo chain to the jackshaft. It provides a coupling to the alternator clutch, the transmission and the ignition system. There is a single cam chain to the exhaust cam and a coupler chain to the intake cam. The 24 valves are shown as are the 6 pistons and the 120 degree crankshaft. All in all, a rather compact unit, considering the length of the crankshaft and the large size of the cylinder head.  This is the magic of the CBX, it's soul bared for all. Exposed CBX motor
