Manual cam chain tensioner
« on: July 11, 2019, 03:41:04 PM »
Does anyone know if the manual cam chain tensioner for the zx6 will work on the z900rs? Like
the APE ktzx6 pro. Does any oul passage ways need to be blocked that feeds the oem cam chain tensioner?

Ah, ok. Is it a common part? There are owners on the forum with >10k mileages and not seen the problem reported.

Not tensioning the cam chain properly, allowing a noisy valve train/cam chain.
