CYLINDER HEAD COVER AND CAMSHAFT (1976-ON)
The cylinder head cover carries the rocker arm assemblies. The camshaft is held in place between the cylinder head cover and the cylinder head and is driven through a chain from the sprocket on the crankshaft.
The cam can be removed with the engine in the frame, but it is easier to do with the engine removed.
CAUTION: To prevent any warpage and damage, remove the cylinder head cover and cam only when the engine is at room temperature.
NOTE: Prior to removing the contact breaker point base plate on models so equipped, make a mark on the base plate that aligns with the centerline of one of the mounting screws. That way the ignition timing will be correct upon installation (providing the timing was correct before removal).
- Place a wood block(s) under the engine to support the bike securely.
- Remove the side covers and the seat.
- Remove the fuel tank as described in Chapter Seven.
The front brake on the 1973-1978 CB125S is a mechanical type disc brake; the rear is a drum type. On all other models, both the front and the rear brake are drum type.
Figure 1 illustrates the major components of the drum brake assembly. Activating the brake hand lever or foot pedal pulls the cable or rod which in turn rotates the camshaft. This forces the brake shoes out into contact with the brake drum.
Lever and pedal free play must be maintained on both brakes to minimize braking effectiveness. Refer to Chapter Three for complete adjustment procedures.
The front brake cable must be inspected and replaced periodically, as it will stretch with use until the cable can no longer be properly adjusted.
Table 1 and Table 2 are at the end of this chapter.
