Riddle me this
Ok, so my second trip to the dealer for warranty work, on the same 2 issues has me questioning parts quality. I'm on my second new style compensator, in the cam chest for valve train rattle, again, clutch basket wore out, and trans output shaft bearing is shot. Bike is a '13 with 18k miles on it.
I don't trust the auto tensioner isn't causing these problems, so what are the options? Replace tensioner? Replace compensator with gear? Or go belt drive and fix both issues? I've only got about 9 months of warranty left, so It needs fixed permanently, or she'll be gone when the warranty is up. Can't afford 3K+ in repairs every six months!
