Cost me $600 at the shop… if your good you can do it in a few hours…
Never owned or worked on one before just picked it up a couple days ago and don’t know if I want to get into this one while I’m building another already.
Lee, its a pretty entailed job…
So I’ve read lol
Checking clearance on valves is easy, adjusting them is a little more in depth because you need to pull the cams
I know they are way out of whack. They sound horrible and the guy I got it off of put a head gasket in and said he never messed with the valves.
Did you check the cct? Could often be confused with valve noise.
What is that? Sorry never owned a cbr
Cam chain tensioner. Common to go out and make a ticking noise resembling valve tick
How can I check that?
When does the noise occur?
Soon as you start it
Does it get better as the bike warms up?
Not sure. I haven’t ran it long. No water in it he put it back together and then started to take it back apart so I just gave a little for it to flip it.
Oh ok. How many miles?
If it’s never had valves done, might as well check em anyway.
I may just send it somewhere. I have another one I’m building already and don’t want 2 tore apart
Might be a good idea if you don’t have a bunch of space. Too easy to mix up parts between the two.
I’ve also got a fast ticking sound when riding. Stops when pulling the clutch. Any ideas. ? Also First bike . Cheers.
Should take more than 4 hrs if you know what your doing.
