Any dealer can supply new cam chains for the bike. They will often have after-market options available too, that can be a bit cheaper.
Service limits would be listed in a service manual, as well as valve clearances, which would be a good thing to check also as they often cause rattles. A good dealer should be able to tell you what these are too.

I'd suggest taking the bike to a mechanic to change the cam chains if you haven't done it before, the process can be fiddly and it's of dire importance to get the cam timing EXACTLY right when re-assembling to avoid engine damage, especially in a 2-cylinder motor.

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.

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.

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
