I would check the tensioner first,
If you want an endless chain you will prob have to split the engine, the othe option is to use a special split link, then you can join it on the old one and feed it through. thumbs

agree on checking the tensioner, most are stuck or at full capacity and just worn out, i got a tensioner made for the xs as nobody did them and the old one was 32 years old!

Tensioner was replaced last year I got cam chain symptoms as in the rattle the build up of carbon until it backfires so think its time for a new one as it is 17 and not designed to last forever cheers for input guys

Done a couple.
Had a Mate keep an eye on me with the first one.

He recon's a common drama is dropping
a link / rivit pin etc down the cam chain
tunnel into the bottom end... Shocked

I keep everything well clear, and pack a
rag into it when im joining them.
