Rattling chain noise

Postby Geo-Nemesis » Fri Jun 15, 2012 11:08 pm

Hi guys, I am a bit worried about a rattling noise on the engine, probably the distribution chain...
I would like to know:
-what a common mileage that need to be replaced? my big has 55K km
-is it possible to tighten the chain tensioner?
-how difficult is the operation of replacing the worn parts?

would you like a video?

please help me, I'm driving it from 2 days and I am already in love with that bike... :D

You will not need a new camchain till at least 120k so it`s not that
It`s possible the balancer chain needs adjusting, and you can see how to do it here http://www.timguy.net/sites/drbiginfo/DrBIGmanuals/
All Bigs make lots of engine noise so your bike is probably normal
