Cam chain tensioner

Recommended Posts

Mine started rattling yesterday morning on the way to work.   Slight rattle when cold, quieter when hot.  When the time came to ride home, was louder again, and became annoying.  Dropped into the dealer on the way home.  Diagnosis; tensioner faulty, and will be replaced on Monday.  5000km on the bike.
Don't ignore any slight rattle if you hear it, as it rapidly gets worse.....

Mine, bought new in May and now a bit over 4000 miles on it, recently started making rattling noises and a steady whine that slows down as u slow down and stops when u stop. Not talkjng anout t sweet whine it makes in 6 gear when u accelerate.
"What do I know of cultured ways, the gilt, the craft and the lie?
I who was born in a naked land and bred in the open sky.
The subtle tongue, the sophist guile, they fail when the broadswords sing.
Rush in and die, dogs — I was a man before I was a king!" -- from t poem "The Road of Kings" by Robt. E. Howard
