Hi all
i have a honda cd 200 benly, it says on my log book its a 194 cc engine
now that the engine is out of the bike and on the bench it does say cd 185 T on the side of the timing case
but more mysteriously the barrels have 184cm stamped on them - all the barrels ive seen are either 180 or 194 so what do i have ?
many thanks
Paul

The outside of the cb200 motor has 198cc stamped into the aluminum on the outside (near the cam chain tension bolt I believe). So I don't know where you're getting the 194cc from.

What are you referring to when you say "barrels"?

Isn't the cc of the barrel cast into the carb side.

Here's James Adams' 200 Benley barrels

The CD200 Benly has a completely different engine to the CB200.

Barrels is a synonym for cylinders, or 'jugs', in vulgar parlance ...

Barrels is a bit more pc, the teenager in me likes the US guys calling them 'jugs'

Could just be 'correct' for a 185. Can't remember which countries require 'accurate' sizing displayed but I know there are a few. BTW, cast on numbers tend to be more accurate (factory) than anything stamped into surface. Stamped numbers generally show 'actual' displacement for racing organisations (until someone checks your over bored XS650 - XS750 and finds it closer to 900cc)
