hi, i have a zx6r 1995 f1 uk spec. i've got a rattle from the cam chain area, it not a constant rattle till you hit about 3500 to 4000 revs. then it rattles constantly. the engine has done 27,000 miles.

i've changed the cam chain tentioner, that hasn't work :headscratch

been told it could be the little end. but not quite sure what that is? :banghead

any advice or has someone else had this problem.

cheers

did you change it with a factory one ,or a manual tentioner?
you might have to change the chain guides in the motor ,i think they are made out of a plastic type material
:headscratch good luck

Probably is a worn chain. Normally you can check wear by measuring between two points on the top run of the chain. The chain can be swapped by splitting the chain & using it to thread the new one round and using a softlink on the new chain. A workshop manual for the bike will give wear limits.

If you want more info do a search in Tech Stuff here, the procedure has been discussed a few times for various bikes:
