Re: 954 scary cold start sound
I just wanna thank everyone for trying to help me with this issue. I have a couple updates to add.
Sometimes when I start her up from cold, the sound only lasts for about 5 seconds and goes away, other times it lasts up to a minute. I started her today, and while the auto-choke was still on, i revved it up to about 3k and I think i could hear the cam chain rattling around in there because the sound increased proportionally with the rpm's.
After it warmed up a little, I put a couple rags in the exhaust outlet and held the throttle to about 4k rpm and again, i think I could hear the cam chain rattle. Do you guys think this sound could be a CCT on it's way out? Maybe the internal spring is weak that's why it sometimes makes the sound for longer times, and sometimes just a few seconds, but after it's warmed up the CCT has enough force to keep the cam chain relatively tight?
