    Have you replaced the cam chain?

    Hi Birdies,

    I was wondering..

    Did any of you Birdies replaced your cam chain?

    If so, by what mileage?

    I did 81000 km. on my 1996 Bird and I never replaced the cam chain.

    The cam chain tensioner I did at 40000 km. because the spring broke.

    At some point the cam chain should be at his end..

    re: Have you replaced the cam chain?

    Nope. I'm at 50,000 miles. Replaced original CCT with double green dot, but that didn't seem to last any better. Am now using the X-11 CCT, but have never touched the chain itself.

    re: Have you replaced the cam chain?

    The noise was best described by another XX owner in the CCT threads as sounding like a bag of marbles. I can say mine rattled like a bag of marbles and included ticking noises. It was first diagnosed by a local shop as needing a cam chain r & r for around $540.00. I found this wonderful sight and after digging and asking i got the right answer for my XXBB. I hope this helps. T

    replaced my cam chain at 82000 km cause a new cct did not bring any improvement.

    Now it is as quiet as new.
