G1 Loud rattle/rubbing noise Cam chain tensioner?
I picked up a zx6r G1 today. it runs ok except for a loud rattle especially noticeable when the throttle is closed at higher than 2-3k rpm. It certainly seems to be coming from the cam chain side of the engine, and my research suggests its a common issue with the zx6r.
I will be whipping the fairings off tomorrow or next week, weather permitting, but it would be great if someone could impart a little wisdom for me. I am quite mechanically competent so not concerned that i couldn't work it out. However advice never hurts, i also could be barking up the wrong tree, might be something completely different.
Even better would be if someone is local to me in Sussex, England and could have a listen! I can dream.
Thanks in advance
