Rattle

Hi,

I just got a 2001 Honda CBR F4i and somthing seems to be rattling at speeds of 50 - 65 km/h. It sounds like it might be coming from the top of the engine. My buddy said it may be that the cam shaft chain may need to be tightened? Does anyone know if this is correct or what else it could be? Also if it is that the cam shaft chain needs to be tightened how do you tighten it?

Thanks

That would be your CCT Camshaft chain tensioner OEM ones always make noise get your self a APE manual and the noise will be gone.

Is there anyway of adjusting it just as a temporary fix until I can get a APE manual one

^^ no, all bikes comes with "automatic" cct's. there is no adjustment. in order to adjust manually, you'll need a manual cct. it's the #1 upgrade done to F4i's because they are notorious for their dysfunctional stock CCT.

lol, more like 1991+ or even earlier. all bikes have them and have had them for a long time now..... the older ones didn't work as well as the newer ones, but they still all fail eventually.
