    I have a 2008 Kawasaki Ninja ZX6R. I thought the noise the Kawasaki tick coming from them CCT. I just replaced with an APE manual cam chain tensioner. It did not fix the noise and when I loosened the APE out further than it should have been, then I could hear the cam chain ticking. When I...

    Alright bike has 25,800 miles on it (yes I know a lot) I am not sure when the last tune up was done and I am doing all my maintenance myself here. First off is just the overall idling issue. Bike idles at 15-1700rpms but it is not consistent at all. More along the lines of continuous...

So I checked the valve clearance and found only one valve was off by .02 mm . That's ridiculously small . So I decided to put it...

    I am currently attempting a valve adjustment on my 07 zx. After taking my valve clearance readings, I have one inlet valve on cylinder 3 with a clearance of less than .063mm. Average clearance is .16mm I have triple checked all valves and I get the same measurement on this valve. Could I have a...
