    cambelt tensioner bearings

    having changed the belts a few weeks ago, today was its first proper run out, after an hour or so i was noticing a strange grinding/squeek type noise.. which actually caused me to call recovery, didnt want to risk it further until i,d checked it out.

    covers off and all looks ok, so started it again, no noise, nice and quiet (ish).. then as it gets warmer it came back..

    anyone experience changing these, can new bearings be pressed into the casings or is it new case and carrier ??

    Hi Garry

    I hunted round bearing factors for ages when one of mine started making noises to no avail.
    Ducati only but the good news is they are easy to fit.

    If you get stuck ride down to me in ipswich and i will fit them for you mate.

    Sounds like you might have belts slightly too tight.

    I use the 5mm allen key method of tensioning and have no odd noises.
    I think because the 1100 has longest stroke/belts i think its some sort of resonance in the belts.
    Dont think anyone has any problem with it on 696/796

    Regards
    Rick
