    Hello Kwak Lovers xxx

    Hello my lovelys,

    Originally from Bristol I moved Up North (a real place) to study mechanics.

    I have joined this forum as I am an aspiring mechanic and looking for avenues where i can get advice, hopefully good advice!!

    I have the opportunity to do a cam chain replacement on my partners ZRX1200, Im struggling to find any user manuals.

    I need bits of information like valve clearences and are the valves adjusted manually like they are on the GPZ9 or are they shimmed?

    Also with the cam chain I need timings etc... Bascally any info ya got would be much appreciated and any one know where i can get a bloody user manual!?

    That'd be great, thanks xxx

    First time I have ever heard of a Rex cam chain being fucked so are you sure (and what leaves you to this conclusion)?


    And very much welcome to the forum.... where there be no stupid questions



    BTW:

    Valves are shimmed but easily as you just move the rocker out of the way to change the shim

    In - 0.13-0.19mm
    Ex - 0.18-0.24mm


    Timing marks are on the sprockets (was trying to pinch the photo but it wont snip) but am still not convinced your chain is fucked and would suggest you first have a look at the tensioner that sometimes just needs helping to get to its next adjustment pawl/tooth - (simply remove the hex plug and spring, insert a screwdriver/bar and apply gentle pressure onto the back of the adjuster face and replace spring and plug)

    Does sound off - mine is over 50k miles and cam chain is well within tolerance.

    Could it be the tensioner has crapped out? A lot of people (including me) move over to manual tensioners.

    Dishwashing liquid is not made with lemons but scented by it.

    As such, real lemon (or parts thereof) is used as there is no artificial way to replicate the odour.


    As for lemon juice, the taste can be replicated artificially.

    Have to say that the tensioner fitted to Rex is one of the best out there (used as a retrofit on lots of the old Kwaks) but if the tensioner will no longer take up the slack then I suspect the tensioner shoe is fucked.


    FWIW with no tensioner fitted, the cam chain physically doesn't have the room to jump a tooth (not that it is something I would try )
