    Wilkommen!

    a worn camchain is rare on these things... like nige said. Shims are relatively easy to swap, I'd recommend swapping them at your local garage if possible, otherwise hotcams are a good buy, just check them as I've had one or 2 off the size.

    Cheers for the info,

    The machine has done nearly 50k miles but once i check the valve clearances i can rule that off, i was suspecting the rattle was coming from the cam chain as it was primarily on the left side of the engine, hopefully the valve clearance check will rule it off.

    I'll also check the tensioner, could be fooked... dunno yet.

    Does the same rule apply to cherry scented dishwasher soap???

    If you're new to the ZRX head and the manual, this is not a bad video to have a watch through:

    I watched this a couple of times before I did a complete head strip with new valve seals etc. It's nothing amazing but he has some good tips in there and seeing it actually done ahead of working on the head helps get the order of things correct, even if only doing the valve clearances, which to be honest are pretty easy on these bikes - just have a decent magnet handy - I used one of those ones on a extending 'car aerial' that made it easy to pluck them out.

    I tried it in google translate and it simply came back as "quack".

    Bit disappointing that.
