I searched here, and, again, couldnt find. But, I'm planning to do third valve check in the near future and was wondering. Can I check the cam chains tensions while doing it and how?
Not necessarily. My cam chain broke because of a manufacturing defect in the chain. Had I inspected it when I did the valve check I would have saved myself an engine rebuild. Sport-Touring.Net - DL1000 - Cam Chain BrokeIt sounds like drive chain noise to me. It follows the bike speed rather than the engine rpm. Cam chain problems are rare on Stroms and when they happen it's because of clogged oil passages or other oil problems, not the chain tensioners.
That's what I want to do. Inspect the chain and tension. But how do I check the tension?
