    re: Have you replaced the cam chain?

    I'm at 35k with a bit of cam chain rattle in around 4,000 rpm. I just bought a manual ape tensioner that I'll be fitting soon.

    I had the same issue with a CBR600F2. The ape tensioner was good for a year before the bike was stolen, while I was replacing the standard tensioner every six months. Yeah...it really needed a new chain!

    Get in touch with Partsguy, our resident parts guru.. He should be able to get one with the group discount, they are not very dear!
    He got me mine for circa 70$ Canadian, so there!
    Its piss easy replacing the cam chain, maybe you could combine it with a valve clearance check?
    Hope this helps,
    Chris

    re: Have you replaced the cam chain?

    My old one got biffed into the garbage at 130,000kms.

    New double-dot tensioner supplied by John @ Jaws. Guides look fine.

    Service history prior to 110,000kms unknown, so playing it safe.

    Unc' Gaz.

    re: Have you replaced the cam chain?

    Gaz, which chain did you go for? .. DID or OEM .... As I'm replacing mine the DID is obviously cheaper but OEM is perhaps better quality wise .. dunno

    re: Have you replaced the cam chain?

    Go only for OEM Scrappy!
    The did is actually a decent chain, but go with the oem for piece of mind. My mech swears to only go for oem for the cam chain and I trust him.

    Not too sure that the did is THAT much cheaper tbh... I think when I was looking for one, the did on ebay was the same as what partsguy did the oem for!
    Cheers!
    Chris

    OEM all the way, Scrapster. If there is one part you really neeeeed to hang together it's the Ol' Rattler.

    Re: Have you replaced the cam chain?

    I needed to resurect this thread b/c I'm thinking, seriously, of replacing my cam chain, 200,000kms, when I do valves, plugs, and a compression test. Problem is, I don't like the quote from the tech on how long it will take. He's talking 8 hours of labour! I know from the manual that it's a 4 out o5 wrench job, but that seems excessive. I can't do it myself so I don't want to start a thread about doing it myself. The weather's changing and bike storage is just around the corner. My do do list is getting long and expensive. As posted previoustly; front/rear suspension rebuild, plugs, valves, "cam chain etc", chain and sprockets, new tires for next year, which I have. I have only a few techs I can trust to do the job. There are a few others but the air fare to get them here is also expensive. It's been 10 1/2 years of ownership and 200,000 kms. I want another 200,000 and ten years of riding. First World problems.

    So, for the home techs, how long do you think it should take and "expert" to do valves, plugs, compression test and install a new cam chain, guides etc.

    I'm looking at last years work order and I had the valves adj and new plugs at 165,737 kms. So, in round #s it's been 33,000 kms since last major service. That's only 6,000 over the owner's manual suggestion for plugs and valves. Maybe I need a second bike to give my precious a rest.

    Theron - Do you know if CCT part No. 06140-MAT-325 is correct for a 1997 XX?

    Have you replaced the cam chain?

    I just ordered the cam chain and guides plus odd and sods, wheel bearing and rear Cush drive, steering bearings, etc to the tune of 4 bills. I have SuperSprox and DID, new plugs & tires. It will be a big winter project. Will send the Penske out and totally clean and refresh front forks. Santa will have to drop off a pile of C notes this year.
