On the Yamaha Super Tenere Forum, the Cam chain tensioner was a hot topic for concern. Opinions ranged from “your engine could blow up at any second” to “that’s normal, don’t worry about it.” Two different guys were so worried about it they changed out the tensioner hemselves, did the job wrong, and ended up causing damage to their motors. Self fulfilled prophesy. Other guys said “screw it” and rode their bikes well past 100k with no problems without ever changing the CCT. I wear ear plugs when I ride, so all I hear is the purr of the engine. When I rode home from the gas station yesterday, I didn’t put in the earplugs, and all of a sudden I am hearing all these noises from the engine to the brakes to the clutch basket. All normal noises I am usually oblivious to with the plugs in. I want you to enjoy your bike without worrying.

Midlife Motor, as long they have good compression, start up easy, and rides good, there's nothing g to worry about? These bikes I have are known to go for hundreds if not, thousands of miles without a rebuild as long if they are not abused.

Interesting. You may want to check the tension on the chain. I think its #5
( Pretty cool method eh? )

Rick.C, I may as well take it in again. But this time, I will have them diagnose the whole motor plus cam chain. it will be $187.50 but I hope they tell me its nothing bad. The other bike however is ok!:OnFire

Lets cross our fingers that its nothing problematic:unsure:

Rick C, let me get it checked out first by the dealer for $125. If they find anything that's bad including the cam chain, I will request to take it back and maybe bring it to your place and fix it with the Yamaha service manual?

That's my plan but if that's ok with you Rick, we will work something out to get the bike running nice!!:Throttle

I've been following this and I may have missed it, but does the noise change with engine temp? Is there a difference from cold start and once it's to full temp?
