Hi everyone,

I've started hearing some engine noise and it's getting louder. I've come to the conclusion that it's the timing chain due to the following: when in low revs and I open up on the throttle I get a bit of chain clattering noise...

My question is - generally when this happens on a Fireblade, does the chain need to be replaced or just the tensioner?

With my 600rr it was only the tensioner that needed replacement.

Thanks in advance!!!

Do both. You are right there. Chains stretch.

Replace both. You are there anyway. Gears wear out and chains stretch.
