    There is some sound in my engine and two mechanics told that timing chain is giving sound. I have been driving the bike like that for last 6 months and faced no issues. What is its purpose

    dear bro.its a chain driven by your engine's crank to power up the camshaft that operates the inlet and exhaust valves of the engine.the if its giving a grinding sound then its probably not getting enough lubrication.hope its helpful..cheers...

    timing chain is a chain just like your transmission chain.
    its purpose is to open/close intlet valve ( so that air/fuel mixuture can enter cylinder ) and open/close exhaust valve to allow for the burnt fuel to be expelled through the silencer .. this is something which needs to be genuine.
