Cam chain questions
So now I am an expert on chain replacement. Well, at least I have the right tool. CBR's are renown for having trouble with the cam chain tensioner (CCT) and mine rattles at idle. When I change mine, I will also redo the cam chain.
Is cam chain similar to drive chain? Can I use my chain breaker to undo the stock cam chain, latch on a new chain, string it through the engine and press on a new side plate? Or is cam chain sold as a solid one-piece chain? If it is can it be carefully broken? Are slotted cam sprockets worth it for a street bike? Has anyone done this?
