VS 750 rat bike
|Subject: VS 750 rat bike Sun Feb 11, 2018 9:09 pm|| |
Hi every one,just got hold of another VS750,bit of a rat bike but only bought for spares,
anyway this guys had so work on the engine done Honed bores ,re ringed,
but it has a rattling sound ? so dropped the lump popped rockers off to find cam chain tensioner
fully extended to where there against the cylinder wall but BOTH chains loose ? by the same amount?
i no its a 30k motor and chains wear but to the same amount ?? do they SPLIT ? and have chain link ?
i can get chains of Evilbay from china for £20 each ! perhaps not the best quality ? but the engine will be
a spare,as i have a 2003 VZ 800 spare as well
any body no if they missed doing something or put the wrong guides in wrong ?
before i got to the trouble of stripping it
ANY help much appreciated

Well I decided to buy two new cam chains, as having pulled the engine apart I couldn't find anything wrong? Apart from floppy cam chains, so I will pop them in as soon as they arrive and fire it up!!
I had the engine soda blasted before the strip down, so when it is rebuilt I will have it re-silver enamelled so it will look like a brand-new engine again!
So I will then fully shrinkwrap it, and the dump it up the corner of the garage for the next 20 years??

I'm not sure on your engine but are there timing marks on the cogs on each of the cams?? if so there should be a max/min distance between those marks documented, that should tell you if the chain has stretched to much, have a look at the parts diagrams on line and see if the guides etc look right etc.

WELL wot a absolute BASTARD !!! firstly the bolts on the crank were that tight ? think they super
glued them in (yep primary bolt left hand thread )then there's the pulling of the stator another
bastard! had to make a puller that went underneath ! good job im a fully coded welder (xray)
now waiting for new chains,called the guy i had it of he said its always rattling when he got it but
thought V TWINS made that sound ???? the only bike this sounded like was a HAR*** ? LOL
now just about had enough of the thing, my bike
has to be completely finished and on the road for April ??????? 10 of us going to the Isle of Man before the races start in june,if it ALL OK great if not its going over a cliff at full bore !!!!!!!!
theres a 600 bandit there already ! NO NOT MINE but a mates LOL
