    Default Timing Chain issues

    I have 2007 model honda 70..

    thing is its timing chain keeps getting scrwed up again n again..

    i have had it changed two times...

    one time it was taiwan/thai made...it lasted only a month

    second time i had it done by honda 'genuine' mechanic...it was genuince atlas honda done by honda mechanic..........and this one lasted 1.5 months....and start to make noise again...

    the honda guy told me that i didn't change oil at proper time thats why it was defective again............but i know i changed the oil at maximum 850KM.....i use havoline...

    what i want to know is......how to solve this problem??

    the honda mechanic will keep charging 850 for it over n over again.......i don't want to spend that money...

    the desi mechanic say that the thai/taiwan timing chain is identical to atlas honda.......

    what should i do that it stays ok and i don't have to keep getting it changed over n over again...

    thanks

    the noise is normal on startup for about 3 seconds or so, if you are so worried about it, you should buy a heavy duty chain from the chain market and not the motorcycle spare shops.. They cost about 3 times more but last years, and be sure that your buffer sprocket that sits in the cylinder itself is in serviceable condition.

    Have u used Atlas Honda's genuine chain/parts while getting serviced through Honda shop ? Have u got changed the supporting wheels & adjuster cap (gots & catori in local language) as well ? if u missed something from above mentioned things then that is the reason for creating problem again. other wise there is some other issue in ur bike or may be mechanic is cheater.

    Imran is right , there are supporters in the timing chain , black rubbers , just check if u bought them new , timing chains dont trouble that often, my chinese 70 s chain lasted 5 years , just replaced it when opened head for other work, otherwise it was fine , so also check ur bike for other faults , maybe its nt the timing chain creating noice and something else ,
    Clear investigation of fault is required

    Yes...the gota was with the timing chain...the whole set got changed..
    yes it was genuine honda mechanic

    i have been told by 2,3 different people that it is the timing chain..
    but there is also another thing also ...tak tak tak...kind of sound coming from engine...it goes away when clutch is pulled......but no mechanic ever said that it was something to worry about..

    @xulfiqar..can u tell me details about this other heavy duty chain??

    @noman
    there is no need to go , for the heavy chain , just use the geniune honda parts chain , purchase it urself from the Honda spare shop on macleod road, dnt trust the mechanics , and i advise u to go for any other Honda mechanic other than the company as the company guys rips of pockets rather than good work , if u wanna know abt good mechanics Pm me ,
    and abt the sound that comes frm engine and gone with clutch pressed is the sound of the Clutch Box or (clutch baksa ) in local language , there is nothing to worry as it will not harm engine , its rubber have become lossened thats y its makin sound, replace it at the time u buy new clutch plates

    the chain can be had from the car parts market too, the same pitch is used in the daihatsu charade engine - it runs the oil pump, just buy 2 chains and have them permanently connected.. or just take your old chain to a chain retailer and they will show you a variety of them.

    btw - its always good practice to start the bike and let idle for 3 or 4 seconds to let the chain lube up and the noise to diminish. Never rev the bike soon as you start it. If your chain lasts for about a month, and then has full wear out play - something or someone (mechanic or rider) is at fault, get a second opinion from an owner and also of another mechanic

    The clutch noise is the clutch basket as mentioned - its nothing big to worry about.
