Need abit of help/advice

Post by AdamZXR » Sat Sep 06, 2008 7:20 pm

Hey there guys recently my ZXR has had a nasty rattle it does this when ticking over aswell when you slow down. any guesses as to what is causing this. oh and my friend has his ZXR Restricted any advice on how to take them out. i heard its something to do with the carbs. oh and how easy is it to shorten the exhaust on my bike? as after i let a friend ride my ZXR he had a badger run out infront of him in our local park. and slid the bike. crash protectors saved ALOT of damage only needed a new mirror and well the exhaust just has scratches on it but lost all the Rivets near enough. so just some help would be great. cheers

the rattle sounds like it might be the cam chain, esecially if it only does it at low revs.

to take the restrictors out you'll be needing this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=55&t=6402

removal is reverse of assembly ;)

As for the can i believe its a case of , cut and re-rivet :)

the cam chain itself is probably fine, i should have elaborated that the rattle is stemming from the tensioner. So perhaps you need a new one :)

Im not 100% certain about changing the tensioner, plenty of others here have done it tho that can tell you more.
