600 F2 Help

I bought an F2 on ebay... Yea I know, I had one of these bikes a long time ago and it was a really good learning bike. My wife wanted a bike and she has never learned to ride, so i bought the bike. My problem is I went and picked it up after winning it started it and rode it... It sounded great. the next day i noticed when I cranked it up it sounded like there was a timeing chain in the motor slapping the sides of the case. after it warms up it sounds good but i have noticed if your in first gear ind you romp on it the thing spits and sputters.

The bike has a yoshi pipe and i am not for sure that the bike has been tuned for that pipe, as a matter of fact the guy I bought it from told me a service guy had compleately gone through the bike but I dont belive him.... Long story short I dont think the bike has ever had much maint, pulled on it.

One other thing This bike needs new plastic all the way around including windscreen, I have looked all over the net and there are not alot of companys that offer much for this bike.... If you can point me in the right direction on a company that may have alot of F2 stuff it would be great.

The cam chain tensioner (CCT) operates off oil pressure. It's probably clogged. I'd get a new one. I think APE makes a manual-adjusting one. But the cam chain guide might also be worn.

They used to race them a lot and you may be able to find racing (lightweight) plastic, that you can paint any color.

You need a manual CCT. Don't bother changing it to another stock one...

I wont promise I even have it until I can find it again. I saw the little thing floating around, probably serving as a paperweight or desk ornament somewhere.

not VERY. just pull your right fairing off, its right above your clutch cable. I found taking the clutch cable mount off makes it much easier and more accessable.

i remembered one of my used bike had that problem. turns out the charging system was bad. the battery was fully charged when i bought it, then it ran like crap and died the next day after i bought it. the stator was bad. but it was an fzr600.
