Cam Chain Noise

Recommended Posts

My 2001 TTR seems to be producing excessive cam chain noise. The motor has one superTT season on it and was ridden hard, but not necessary abused. I have been very good about oil changes and valve adjustment, as specified in the manual. Initially I thought it was valve noise, but I have double-checked valve clearance and it’s to spec. I’m contemplating removing the chain adjuster for inspection, and to reset the automatic tension. Has anyone had a similar experience – or any problems with the automatic adjuster?

Thanks in advance for your help!!

If its on a TTR125 it does get a bit noisy over time esp with reving it and especially after adding heavier valve springs and cam. It might be time to replace it but our one has been a bit noisy for nearly 12 months and cam chain, sprockets and tensioner are still in good condition.
