Too tight of cam chain, and this one was barely too tight so minimal wear over about 2000 miles since they installed the manual tensioner
notice how those end cam journals are worn excessively from being "pulled" on........compare to the journals right next to them with zero visible/measurable wear..
So my experience and knowledge with thousand and thousands of bikes and seeing the internal workings of all of them trumps any putz posting up an idiotic video of a dumbfuck hack doing some halfass "cure"
But hey........follow someone with zero evidence and zero knowledge......it is your bike- do what you please just don't whine about it or claim there are no bad side effects from ignorance!!!
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
