    Even you're not that cursed. Are you?

    IIRC these things were derived from the CB9 engines which were amongst
    the nastiest devices Honda ever inflicted on the universe...

    Bear in mind this was at a time when honda manifestly couldn't do
    canchain tensioners, so they produced this wizzbang thing with 2
    camchains & 2 tensioners, neither of which worked reliably. ISTR
    something about a hydraulically tensioned primary chain but the pain of
    it all has driven the details from my memory.

    The first time my CB9 died it seized in the fastlane of the A1 at
    110mph. Not fun. Effing horrible thing, I still can't believe someone
    gave me money for the remains.

    I've *never* heard of such a machine. Do they really have 10 gears?
