Default CAM Chain tensioner?

Hey, New here Just seeing if anyone here can help me out

Right, I dropped my bike the other week and the next day there was a rattling noise in the engine, I asked around and found out it could be the cam chain tensioner.

I changed the lifter assembly (5) shown in the picture below as when I took it out and put it back in it seemed to be quiet, I couldn't also unscrew (8)

So I brought a new one and put it in today. Started up the bike The noise is still there, I also tried tightening it up (anti-clockwise), I'm assuming I should change the Tensioner itself.

Where would the bolt (13) be located?

Quite funny I called up honda and asked how much it would cost for them to do this for me, They said for them to change the lifter assembly It would be 2 hours and 89 an hour... I told them it took me 20 minutes..

Welcome to the forum Owen.
#13 would be inside the engine down by the crankshaft area.
I found this clip.


Looks like a self ratcheting adjuster. Install it and pull the tool, it should self adjust.

You may want to look at this clip also.
I guess it doesn't ratchet but rather simply has constant pressure from a coil spring.

Interesting!
