probably best to just

find another CBX engine really, they weren't a bad engine as such (if you fix yours of course, you'll know it's good for plenty more miles) the hydraulic tappets take one item off the maintenance list for instance, you might also be able to fit the engine from the CB750 from the 1990s, pretty much same engine, but might be detuned a bit.....saw a nice condition CB roll up at a bike shop yesterday funnily enough :blink:

The 90's CB750 engine was a slightly detuned version of the CBX but is a reliable lump. Just check the alternator and cam chains are ok.

Honda CBX 750F 1989

Hi Dirkrose and welcome to the site:smile

Give part finder UK a call,one of the 200 plus breakers they use should come up with a second hand replacement CBX engine.I would think the older CB engine is quite a bit different,may look a bit similar?

:tongue:Good Luck
