Replacing cam chain on '02 954 advice?

Hi Guys,

Was just hoping to get some opinions. My 02 954 with 25k miles on is making a hell of an engine rattling noise between 4500 and 6500 rpm, and all evidence points to my CCT as that is where the noise emits from. I tried manually tightening it when I serviced it last, but the problem only went away for a couple of days and came back with a vengeance.

My question is, should I only replace the CCT, or should I do the full monty and get a new cam chain and guide as well?

I would also like to know if there is any way of cleaning injectors myself? I always use to send dirty injectors from the cars I built in to have them cleaned, but have never dealt with bike injectors, not that they are much different except for capacity... Is there a way I can clean these myself?

Thanks in advance!

My vote would be replace just the CCT. My 900 started the same thing and I just replaced the CCT with an APE and it stopped.

like others have said, start with the tensioner. if your having known issues with it once you replace the tensioner then go from there.
