Has anyone had any problems with their Cam Chain Tensioner on their 954? I just dropped mine off at the stealers this morning to get it checked out :(

Makes a loud chatter/ticking sound when cold and then slightly and occasionally does it when warm. The last time I rode it, it also seemed to have missed a couple times when I was sitting at a red light.


Thank goodness for the extended warranty! :cheers:

I don't have an answer to your question, Alex, other than no, I haven't had that problem with the tensioner.

I just had to let you know that I never thought I'd see anything sillier than your froggy cat avatar, but I was grossly mistaken. The first time I saw the helmet cat I nearly choked on my coffee!

How do your cats put up with this????

Now back to your regular program.

Let's see first. You might be disappointed in their answer/solution. Or, no problem - that's normal and that'll be $65.00 diagnostic labor (not covered by warranty). Good luck either way. Others have had success with warranty replacement of CCT.

I had mine replaced twice on my 929, so far the 954 has been good (touch wood).

The noise on the 929 used to start approx 5200-5500 rpm

I have noticed the same noise on mine usually most noticible when rpm's level out around 4,000-5,000 rpm.
Called my local stealer they said para valve normal I will keep an ear on it let me know the outcome.
:cheers:

Apparantly the red ones make more power, so they can actually stretch the timing chain, to a point where the tensioner can not keep things under control, so if your concerned about the noise get any color except for red :twofing: :D
