If it's low miles, I'd pass on that. If the valves have been replaced, then the cam chain would be a good idea.

If you have just bought the bike , are unsure if you have a chain or a belt , have not seen the detailed invoice from the last service it´s better that you take it to the dealer for a service . If they take off only the camhaft cover they can check your chain stretch and your valve lash and inform you if you need any .

It´s much better to be safe than sorry .
