SOURCE: vt500 c ticking sound. Cam chain tensioners

You have a self adjusting cam chain tensioner. It is sold as an assembly. Take out the complete unit and replace it with a new one. The springs are not bad , the device that keeps the pressure on the tensioner is slipping causing a ticking sound.

SOURCE: ticking noise in engine .louder

A ticking sound that gets louder as the engine warms up usually is an indication of the valves need adjustment. The clearance between the valve stem and the tappet on the rocker arm will get larger over time and needs a periodic adjustment. The cam chain can make noise as well, but "usually" more of a continuous noise that will change with rpm's (may quieten when accelarating/deccelerating). If it is the valve clearance, it is not an immediate concern, but should be adjusted to prevent unnecessary wear on the tappet/stem. Another way to tell is if it quitens somewhat with an oil change. Newer oil will provide more of a dampening effect on the contact between the stem and tappen, thus reducing the noise.

Hi, Roger for this scenario you will need your service manual that has all fastener torque specs and a wiring diagram on the back pages, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Honda, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

Hi i have a 2003 honda vtr firestorm just wondering when cam chain and tensioner should be changed .Also at what intervals should bike be serviced.


Manufacturer recomeds tensioner @ 40k but please change them at 35k. My rear tensioner failed @ 40150 ks and two bent valves, valve stem seals, head gasket + the two 50$ tensioners + labour, i was back on the road.
as for the servicing i personally have been doing 5k oil and 10k oil and filter change. As long as the service intervals are with in six months apart i dont think you wil have a problem. If you dont do many k's change your oil at least once every six months-oil is cheap.

Cam chain tensioners


i replaced mine on my cbr f1 with a salvaged one... a couple of bolts and it took me 20 minutes with fairings off. it was a good thing i replaced it, because the old one was worn down really bad, and its was wobbly. I heard that if you use an aftermarket and you don't know what your doing you could cause damage. can i get some feedback, thanks

Loud tapping coming from the front of my vtr 1000


Some VTR1000's had a problem with the cam chain tensioner on the front cylinder. If this is left the chain can become so loose it skips a few teeth on the cam sprocket and bends the valves. If you can locate the tensioner, remove the centre screw with sealing washer from it, insert a small flat blade screwdriver in and run the engine. you will feel the screwdriver shake about if the tensioner has gone.

Rattling noise from engine sometimes . mostly when choke just turned off or slowing to stop early on . not as bad when done a few miles . 15000 miles on clock . suspect cam chain tensioners ?


Its probably the automatic cam chain tensioner. Honda told me to ignore the noise because nothing bad is happening. My bike shop said I should replace it with a manual tensioner. I have 15300 miles and will leave it be.
