Timing chain (or cam chain or camchain) replacement
Permalink  
 


I fitted a new timing chain this afternoon and have created a new picture guide.

See http://ttr250.com/Timing_chain/TTR250_timing_chain_fitting.htm 

Any corrections or suggestions for improvement appreciated!

Brian

I was helping a mate sort out noisy camchain-type noise this morning and was a bit taken aback by the position of his cam sprockets confuse

Normally, a worn camchain is indicated by the sprocket timing lines canting the other way.

I cannot explain this except to think that the camchain is very worn and is actually a tooth out no  Anyone else have a possible different explanation?

A new camchain is on its way to my mate from Steve at Totally TTRs so will be able to compare old with new very soon wink

I confess to having had to look at my own guide to removing the camchain to check what had to be removed biggrinbiggrin

Just thinking out loud here but could the cam chain tensioner be weak?

That was one of my first thoughts Daniel but I checked it and its got a strong spring and is working well. Both chain slippers are in excellent condition.

Now, there's a thought! That certainly would explain it....

Comparing the new and old chains there is apparently quite a difference so maybe we just go with the new chain and see what's what wink
