cam chain - July 17, 2008, 11:57 AM

Ok so i got some crazy vibration noises going on at 7-9k rpm... on my k4 gsxr 600.... i know this was a problem on f4i but had never really heard of it on gsxrs... i also heard that all you really need to replace is the cam chain tensioner... does this sound right? anyone else got a guess on what it might be or have the same problem? ... how hard is this to replace yourself?

From what you said sounds like it but try to listen to it closer and if need to give RnR Cycles a call at 571-277-0892 and talk to Rick.

get a long screwdriver

put the tip on the motor, from left to right, put your ear on it and follow the cam chain side through it path.

if the noise is around that area atleast youll know to just buy a 90 dollar manual cam chain tensioner...if not, further investigation will be required buddy.

At least get it looked at a decent mechanic can diagnose it in just a few min.

Dont let it sit, it cost me a motor a few years a go.
