I agree. I subscribe to his YouTube channel and it's a mix of ZX7R, ZX9R, other bikes and racetrack days. I first started following his channel a while back when he did a rebuild of his ZX7R after the fateful and well-known failure of the camchain rubber breaking and entering the engine and causing all sorts of havoc. His collection of videos on sorting out this issue are worth watching from the beginning.

BTW. If you haven't checked the state of that little rubber fucker inside your camchain cover for a while then do so now! Around 2 weeks ago I was checking the valve clearances and discovered that the rubber camchain guide had split at one of the fixing holes. Lucky for me it hadn't made its way into the engine but split in 2 as I removed the cover. It's rubber and hardens with time due to the hot oil and once hard becomes prone to cracking at the 2 circular stress raisers, and ultimately fractures in two, enters the engine and end of story.
