Question about 2006 Yamaha V Star Classic

1 Answer

I have a 2006 Yamaha 650 V-star classic. It recently developed a "metal on metal" noise coming from the front cylinder. We've adjusted the valves and now believe that the noise is coming from the cam chain. I understand that the 2006 model has an automatic cam chain tensioner. I bought a repair/maintenence manual on CD that arrived today but there is no diagram of the cam chain tensioner. I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to fix the problem without removing the engine and taking it apart.

REPLACE THE CAM CHAIN TENSIONER BEFORE YOU GO TEARING THE ENGINE APART, THEY ARE SELF ADJUSTING BUT THEY DO FOUL UP, (HAVE HAD THIS ISSUE WITH A SUZUKI AND A YAHMAHA, NEW TENSIONER FIXED THE NOISE) IT IS ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE ENGINE AND FAIRLY EASY TO GET OUT.
