At the end of May 2013 crankshaft was renovated. Cylinder was bored and honed.
At that point I faced with the question of cam chain worn. It turned out to be stretched enough for its replacement. I had never before the chance to repair big single cylinder engine, therefore I did not expect that cam chain could be outworn at 50K kilometers. So I even didn’t make measures of cam chain tensioner’s position before engine was disassembled.
I had no time for ordering and parcel waiting (two weeks, if you are lucky). But for my happiness there was spare chain in friendly garage. Guys began to repair XT660 engine at that time and had new cam chain (SRX600 has same partnumber) for it. But they didn’t need it immediately so I offered them a little higher price and got the chain.
Wear of an old chain was visible.
Than engine work was interrupted once more due to parcel with some parts being lost. I ordered new rotor nut and lock washers for clutch and balancer weight in April, but I still hadn’t got them by the end of June. But I had a lot of other work to do, so there was no tragedy , but just a minor disappointment.
To be continued.
