Hey guys I need some input ASAP, the GixMix has been making this wicked clicking tapping sound(listen to video"wrecked" thread) so I decided to adjust the cam chain(manual adjuster) and it was awesome! The noise is completely gone! :-) but now I can hear what I think is the cam chain wizzzing when I rev it alittle, like a zzzzzzz sound, is this normal for these? Or did I tighten to much? I put a socket on the tightener bolt but just tighten with my hand(no ratchet) as far as I could, I hope I didn't damage anything, please let me know if I should back it off some
I have a Haynes manual, I thumbed through it I a hurry today, I'll have to go back and look again, either way I think I'll back it off a couple turns, but the rest of the motor sure sounds good, no knocks other than the Suzuki rocks in a popcan
Ok first things first, Haynes manuals are basically useless other than some very basic info and the kickass colored wiring diagrams in the back, a fair price too $35
Anyway the GixMix has a manual cam chain tensioner(aftermarket)so there was zero info on that in the book, so I just loosened the lock nut and backed it off then tightened with my fingers until I could feel that it was putting some tension on the chain and tightened the lock nut again, this seems to have worked, the clacking noise is still gone and I no longer hear the cam chain wizzzing around, just sayin...
