Cam chain stretch?

Recommended Posts

What is the easiest way to verify whether I have cam chain stretch or not?

The engine has a loud piston slap type of sound but someone said to check the cam chain stretch first. It has the updated cam chain tensioner.

Thanks.

Has the tensioner reached the end of it's travel? That is about the only way to easily tell although not very scientific or accurate. If you are asking about a 2000 DRZ400S in your signature, I would assume you need a new cam chain
