Re: Kreiger, APE, Bazza and Ade Whitmarsh's CCT's

Has anyone tried the Chinese ones?
They are half the price (delivered) on ebay for me here in Australia.

Re: Cam Chain(?) noise

Thanks Wicky.
I'm in Australia and I looked up both websites and Krieger is about the same price as exhaustist for me in Australia.

If they will do the job, I would rather pay $77 than $150.

Re: Cam Chain(?) noise

That makes sense Chris. But it only makes the noise while holding steady revs between 2 and 3 thousand revs. When backing off or accelerating everything is fine. I guess the best idea would be to install manual cam tensioners and see if that fixes it. I can check other things while I have the gear o...

Re: Cam Chain(?) noise

Re: Cam Chain(?) noise

Thanks VTR Phoenix. Just went out to the shed and ran it for a while. The noise seems mostly when holding the revs steady between 2 and 3 thousand rpm. Under 2 thousand or over 3 thousand it seems fine. It seems ok when revving or dropping revs. When it occurs, it has a minor splutter and a vibratio...

Cam Chain(?) noise

Hi Just bought a '97 model VTR1000 with 65,000km. When sitting on a steady speed, sometimes there is a noise that sounds like a chain slipping noise and I can feel the vibration in my groin. Seems like it's coming from the motor. Only does in on a steady speed. Seems ok when accelerating or decelera...
