Mass-out's grease trick concerning the cam tensioner?

I have made a video and uploaded it to yt so maybe it's a familiar sound.

Greek sellers – maybe it gets lost in translation, but in my experience “good condition” often has a different meaning in Greece, so usually I had to buy twice. Sorry, no source for used AX1 parts that I could recommend.

Ok, mass out’s tensioner fix viewtopic.php?t=2534

I'm really bad at video acoustic diagnosis , but this does not sound like a faulty tensioner or a worn out cam chain to me. In your case the chain produces a bit of rattling, but nothing to worry about. The hard, clacking sound points to something more sinister, I’m afraid. But as said, I’m not any good on that and sometimes the sound on that videos is misleading. On my videos my NX sounds really strange, but that’s due to the video editing.
What you can do: check the oil filter for any kind of flitters. If they are non-magnetic, it’s aluminium when a loose cam chain is chewing at the cylinder. Magnetic flakes may come from the lower conrod bearing, that’s very rare but it produces a hard clacking sound like this.
After that take a close look at the cam chain & tensioner, check the timing, valve play etc. viewtopic.php?t=2529 With the head cover off and a torch try to take a look at the cam chain sprocket a the crankshaft Bild
If everything is ok with the valve train and the clacking persists you could pull the head and cylinder to check the conrod bearings.

Hey,

Glad to hear that we at least can share that info again.
Ofcourse, I am less happy to hear about your first impressions. My phone has a pretty good microphone and I am not aware of what kind of speaker you are hearing the sound from but I definitely put faith in your proven experience.. it is raw material and it the clacking sound is just as present when standing near.
I might as well just add some honesty to the occasion.. it was running low on oil and I might've driven a few kms quite lean. Over time I just take the bike for small rides through the ardennes and due to my busy schedules..over time I just keep forgetting to check the level.
Having said this, well... maybe we can assume some sinister things.
Well, it is my wish to get to know the deeper layers of the engine.. how ironic.


At the moment I'm home but I have some more pics.

Can’t detect anything suspicious – so next check the valve play and timing viewtopic.php?t=2109

As for the AX1 headlight – as said the Chinese replicas come without the black housing, so they can’t be attached to the bracket. The only thing you can do is to register at www.car.gr. and try to contact the sellers, sometimes they provide email addresses. But in most cases they won’t respond.

Hi,

So, one light bracket has been delivered.
At https://motoparts22.com/ I saw they had one used in stock and ordered it through them.
Took about 16 days to get to me.
I'm just dismantling them as I go. At the moment the process is slow going because of busy times at work as usual.

The best to you all
