Last Saturday a friend and I changed the cam chain tensioner on his 2001 GS. [QUOTE]
This is better plan . My cam chain guide and tensioner snapped at 6,00 RPM behind Mt. St. Helens in August. I was passing a car ( never did get that pass finished).
The bike was an 03 GS Adc. 50,000 miles on it , BMW did a total engine swap - it was knarly inside.
That took from early August till mdi December.
In that time I rode a new LT to Mexico and back and got knocked down at Reg Pridmore totaling the LT and now have a Wing.
I guess my cam chain guide/ tensioner problem was not the one in a million BMW thought it was.
