Question about 1998 Honda CBR 1100 XX Super blackbird
YES! nice bike by the way i wish i had one "blackbird" this happened to mine and another friends Hurricane we both had the noise and one day he sent me a text video saying listen to my bike and it sounded like **** ..what had heppened is that the chain jumped a tooth and the timing was way off it was amazing to listen too and it sounded like it was going to explode he found out that his cam chain tensioner was broken..so i decided to check mine and boy was i glad i did, when i took it out it was leaking oil past the seal, was wobbly side to side play, and was worn on one side more than the other..so i went to a salvage yard and picked up one that looked in decent shape and installed it and have put another 10k on it, the chain noise is still there but not quite as bad now..im sure that the chain is stretched especially the way i ride it...i race it at the track and put extreme loads on it. so you'd better have a look at the tensoiner and dont replace it yourself unless you know exactly what your doing..because the dealer will probably try and sell you an after market style, and these are a highly critical in the set up or adjustment if you want to call it that, and if you do it wrong..it will damge the engine..just try and get an original stock one.
