You better chain it soon! my friend has the same bike with about same mileage as mine and now it dont sound good, i think he slipped a tooth...it idles like ****.
I went to a local dealer of mine and got his opinion about the sound and he said those are notorious for going bad... so i bought a Stock used one from a salvage place for $40 and installing only took 1/2 hour. when i inspected the oil one... it was wobbly and leaking oil bad when i compressed it, and it was chewed up on one side from 40K miles of hard riding. If you by an after market adjustable one.... i"ve read that you better know what your doing or it could cause damge if its not adjusted correctly. good luck.
can i get a feed back thanks!

Cam chain rattle when engine is idling


This bike is well known for cam chain rattle, but it has an automatic tensioner so there are no adjustments. If the bike runs well just ride it. I have a friend that had his cam chain, tensioner and guides, and in less than a couple years it was making the same sounds. If the bike run rough then it is a possibility the chain has stretched and unless you are confident with timing issues take it to a pro.

Late 1988 GPX250 sounds like noisy tappets. Do these need to be replaced or can they be adjusted?


the valve clearances will be adjustable.
If it has shims for the adjustments, you need to measure the clearance, remove the shims that need adjustment(may need cams removed) and replace shims with thicker or thinner ones to correct clearances.
cam chain also needs regular replacement, and can cause rattling noises, as it may be 23 years old, this is also possible.

My cam chain is rattley how do i tighten it ive a 89 zxr 400


There is a cam chain tensioner on the ZXR 400. It sounds like you need a new cam chain.

Important Note: The cam cahin tensioner is held on by the two bolts that hold the clutch cable bracket underneath the timing cover. Never loosen these bolt and re tighten them. If you need to undo them, remove the cam chain tensioner and reset it.

Rattles at low reves only


THE RATTLING YOU HEAR AT LOW R'S IS MORE THAN LIKELY THE CAM CHAIN RATTLING. THE CHAIN TENSIONER IS ADJUSTABLE TO A DEGREE BUT A BIKE OF THIS AGE(IF OVER SAY 10000 MILES) MAY NEED A NEW CHAIN TO ALLEVIATE THIS PROBLEM. LOOSE CHAIN CAN CAUSE CAM TIMING TO VARIATE CAUSING A SLIGHT MISFIRE.
THIS MISFIRE COULD ALSO BE THE RESULT OF DIRTY CARBS. IF SO THEY WILL NEED CLEANING AND SYNCING.

Have a 2008 kawasaki 1500 with excessive noises from rear lifters, also noises cam chain slap, my mechanic keeps telling its normal. thanks


YOUR MECHANIC IS SOMEWHAT RIGHT TO AN EXTENT. KAWA 1500'S ARE CHARACTERISTICALLY NOISY IN THE VALVETRAIN! BEEN AROUND THEM SINCE THEY WERE BORN. NOW IF YOURS IS PARTICULARLY NOISY, HAVE THE MECHANIC CHECK THE VALVETRAIN AND CAM CHAIN TENSIONERS FOR PROPER ADJUSTMENTS. THIS IS CRITICAL FOR THE LIFE OF THE ENGINE!

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.

ZX6 Noisy Cam Chain


if your chain is makeing nois it would be a good idear to replace the chain a manual cam chain tenshioner will take the slack up but what about the valve timeing a worn chain will throw it out due to the chain stretching plus the manual tenshioner will make the guides wear faster if ya auto matic tenshioner has reached its limit that means replace chain no ifs or buts

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.
