The noise you hear is the timing chain slapping against the inside of the case.

So there is a certain way that had to go back in??
I made it so it fit smoothly, but have no idea where that tip piece ended up. I get a slapping/ticking sound - most noticable in first gear. Can someone scan the manual page that shows the tensioner and its correct placement?? This is driving me nuts! Thanks for anyone who can help me!!

1. Cam Chain Tensioner first (insert black plastic tip end first)
2. Then the spring (insert the small end of the spring that fits into the botton of the cam chain tensioner first)
3. Then the bolt.
Just be careful not to overtorque the bolt. I did this and cracked pieces off of the crankcase were the bolt screws into the crankcase. The torque on this bolt is 17lbf-ft. I was using a torque wrench that starts at 20 lbf-ft and had it dialed down. Still overtorqued it.

why don't you sissy's get a real bike not these bloody 70 hp heaps of crap
70hp, that would be a scary mini. Mmm... 70hp mini...
Anyways, why don't you go back to hiding in the corner. We don't laugh at you for your bike choice, so lay off ours.

Just to add to my "sissy" garage ... I've got the Honda XR70, Kawasaki ZX6R, Honda 400EX, Honda CR250, Suzuki DR350S, Kawasaki Mean Streak, and a lifted 4x4 Polaris Sportsman 700 twin. I need one of each type!
James, oh James .... why be such a little baby? This bike is fun, I doubt you've ever even ridden one. Your CRF (if you even have one) is a kick ass bike - no doubt! I don't own one, but hey - I'm not gonna jump on a post and trash it for no reason other than jealousy. Whatever ...

Which bolt of the two is the drain plug?
I bought a used XR70 for my son last week, but didn't get a manual.
