SOURCE: cam chain ticking at idle

the tensioner is definitely a problem on these bikes

SOURCE: rattling noise from engine sometimes . mostly when

Its probably the automatic cam chain tensioner. Honda told me to ignore the noise because nothing bad is happening. My bike shop said I should replace it with a manual tensioner. I have 15300 miles and will leave it be.

SOURCE: 04 crf 250r.... the head has a chattering noise when running

Any chance the valve spring has collapsed? Cam shaft thrust washers missing? Cam shaft bearing gone bad?

SOURCE: Honda CB Seven Fifty 1992. Sudden engine noise

I am not familiar with every engine Honda builds, I don't know what a alternator chain is. Normally the cam chain is quiet. You say it runs so it can't be too out of adjustment. If you wish to keep this bike in mint condition, I suggest you have this fixed by a Honda Pro before the condition worsens.

How do I adjust the timming chain tension on a honda 125 XL 1987 model


on the back of the cylinder head you've got two 10mm nuts/bolt heads, with the engine running SLIGHTLY loosen these bolts and then tighten them back up and the excess chain noise should be gone.

Hope this helps

ENGINE NOISE


It could be the 'cam chain' but you will be getting into a major overhaul to replace the cam chain so if you are familiar with the teardown of the motor go ahead and do it otherwise take it to a repair shop.
