    Cam Chain repleacment

    Hi All!
    Have anybody never changed the Cam chain on Mille.My bike during the riding at 5000rpm starts to give strange noises(like stones inside of the engine) only from 5000rpm , under that you cant hear nothing.I think it will be the cam chain.Now i planning to repleace it and im just thinking that the chain guide must be changed as well or its not necessery?
    Please if somebody have or had a same issue let me know!
    Thank you!

    I wish wide roads for everyone!

    It may just be the tensioner...they are known to fail on the odd occasion. Cam chains seldom go unless the tensioner let go a long time ago. Give Griff at A.P a call and discuss with him.

    hey hey!
    i reckon scotts right my friend!

    i too am convinced thats more like the cam chain tensioner...ive seen a broken tensioner blade too that gave a similar symptom, but more likely the tensioner...easy fix too!

    hope this help??
