basically 13.5:1 444

mild port work with both intake and exhaust hot-cams.

running the bike on the cart track downshifted 2 gears tipped it in and acted like it ran out of fuel...and wouldn't start again all day

got it home, tore it down chain skipped teeth on intake camshaft chain loose on cams with tensioner installed.

checked clearances cam/bucket everything within spec

gonna throw a new chain on it, is there an aftermarket manual adjuster, or is the "norm" to stick with the stocker?

thanks in advance

I have not heard of any problems with the OE auto adjuster. How may miles on the cam drive? May want to replace the chain guides if grooved deeply.

It is possible. My son's KLR had a chain that streched that far. The new chain fixed it right up and made it much more quiet.
