Camshaft Chain

I just bought a 2001 R6 two weeks ago its got 22000 miles on it and I was woundering if it would be a good idea to replace the camshaft chain (timing chain) are is there a way to tighten it

Thanks Mark

Re: Camshaft Chain

I doubt a sportbike motor will last long enough to worry about a timing chain. The tensioner will pick up the slack. If they had a timing belt, they could be a concern, but they don't. I have no idea if the r6 has an interference motor, I want to say it does. With that said, I would probably only replace it if you ever do an overhaul on it.
