Need tohave your valves ajusted. intake valves should be about 5-thousnds, and exhasut should be about 7-thousands. be in all, the slite tap you are hearing will not hurt anything. Sometimes times a little lose is good to keep from bending a valve.

    It still sound like to valves, or the time chain tensioner. usless you have a loose wrist pin on one of you pistons. It hard to put my hand on it thru and E-mail. This low of miles, you might need to check to see it. This bike has any recall or ask your local Bike shop if they have had any problems with this model bike?????

I have a 1996 suzuki ls650 savage how do I get the camchain on the bottom gear?


Take off the right hand side crankcase cover, remove the tensioner and the chain's guides and hook the chain to the crankshaft's gear and then pull it up through the cylinder and cylinder head and install the guides back.The crankcase cover will be placed on the engine last, after you have finished with timing your camshaft and have the tensioner installed.

I own a 2004 BMW R1200CL. Almost every time I crank the engine I can hear the valves rattle. I have checked and adjusted the valve clearances to spec. The rattle goes away after the engine starts, but...


Yep, most of these bikes do rattle on startup. The noise is from cam chain slack. A hydraulic tensioner is used in the engine on each side as there are two cam chains. The tensioner leaks down after the engine sits for a while and the chain rattles for a few seconds till the tensioner gets pumped back full of oil again. Once the chain is tight again, then no noise.

BMW came out with an improved tensioner (doesn't leak down as quickly) that you can install on your engine to fix the rattle. Note that it is much easier to change the RHS tensioner than the LHS one.

Good Luck!

How does the timing chain adjuster work? My motor is a little noisy and I was looking to tighten my timing chain. The manual doesnt tell me how to just adjust it. It tells me how to assemble it (not very...


Well I guess the type and model of motorcycle would help.

However, most camchain tensioners are basically automatic. They bear against a long, curved nylon dampener that rides the slack (trailing) side of the chain. This pressure is made by a spring inside the chain tensioner housing itself and is not a serviceable part.

If housing is bolted up tight, all available tension is employed. If chain is still slack...camchain is worn out must be replaced.

Camshaft and rocker arm gaps maybe providing all the noise also, maybe time for a top end service, whatever the bike!!
Cheers.

Replacing timing chain on ttr 90


There should be a timing mark on the magneto, rotate crank until line is visible thru inspection hole. This will position engine at Top Dead Centre. Have head complete with gaskets, valves, springs and camshft in place and position with camshaft chain in ready position, (you have to hold chain thru camchain opening) Place head on and bolt tight (no need to torque down yet) and pull camchain tight on opposite side to tensioner (fully loosened) and feed over camchain sprocket, take up tension with tensioner screw/bolt. This will have engine TDC with valves closed (as if to fire) rotate engine by hand and ensure tracking of camchain and tension is steady on chain. Valves should actuate in time. Have a close look on camchaim sprocket and a mark of some sort should show against corresponding mark on camshaft journal cuos.

I would be looking again at the cam chain tensioner. I have replaced 2 on my 05 so far and it was doing the same thing. the other known problem for noise in the engine like that is the valve guides are know to wear prematurely on 05's and the 03 and 04. Yamaha knows about the problem and will fix it under a one time warranty even if you do not have the extended warranty on the bike. Make sure you talk to the dealer about premature valve guide wear.

Possible camchain rattle


yep, a lot more, if oil has been changed when it should. usual soution to this, unless it really is rattling badly, is to go out and give the bike a real good thrashing. that will stretch the chain a tiny bit and allow the cam chain tensioner to move on to it's next click in the ratchet. in other words, unless it sounds like a bag of nails, leavi it alone but keep an ear out for it getting worse, these engines are one of the best about, not like the Honda who haven't yet found out how to make a cam chain tensioner.

Camchain rattle on startup


this could be a sticky cam chain tensioner as the oil gets hot it releases the adjuster to work normaly. 2 bolts it if you wish to take it off and clean it.

ZRX1100 P reg (1990?) Runs nice and smooth, is as ecomical as usual, serviced recently (no carb icing). When cold and on tick over, there is a clatter as if something is loose. Using choke, noise goes away...


Hi ...... Does noise 'go-away' if you pull in the clutch ? Could be a few things, cam chain needs adjustment or replacement (35,000 miles-ish), rotor on some Kawasakis made up of steel centre,alloy middle & steel outer. Parts can become loose, short term solution is to centre tap/spot sections but ultimately replace rotor. Have you ever had the left casing off ? Is there a gasket fitted or a thinner pattern type fitted ? When was the last time valve clearences checked/changed ? Did they change shims on that side ?
Let us know how you get on.

Honda CBR 1000 -87 slacky oil pump chain


possibly but there should be a lock on the chain if think there has to be a way to adjust it id re look the chain and if not id get the dimentions of the chain and look for one on the net but make sure this one has a lock unless it will rattle so much that the lock will fail and the cain will come undone and that could cause one hell of a wreck or a ride bud
