cam chain rattles on '96 GSXR 750...experiences?
I'm seriously considering purchasing a 1996 GSXR 750. It has 14k miles on it and a bit scrapped up from a drop, but the guy says the engine is fine. This is at a rather reputable "from my knowledge" used bike dealer. The only thing is when the engine is running theres a distinct rattling and vibration that eminates. He said its the cam chain and that most suzuki's from that period have that issue when they get older. What does this mean for engine life? What are your experiences with a tensioner and how hard is it to fix? Will it be silenced afterwards? Thanks a bunch.
