Kawasaki Bayou 400 4x4 tick, valves? KACR?

Recommended Posts

I have the opportunity to pick up this mid 90s Bayou 400 for cheap. Trying to decide if I should or not. It's got this tick that the owner says it's had for the last 20 hours or so. It starts up and runs fine, just ticks. See attached video. 

My theory is that it's in desperate need of a valve adjust and an oil change. Anyone else seen/herd this before?

Sounds like cam chain loose - either a new chain or tensioner / tensioner adjustment or both

Looks like I can get a new chain and tensioner, however the front and rear guides aren't available new anymore. 

Anyone else? Thoughts?

Well, it took a while (busy with other stuff) but I replaced the cam chain.........Still have a tick. Similar to what it was before, but I don't think it's as loud. 

Any other ideas of what could be wrong?
