Grambo Trick Worked (with audio!)

I started my bike this evening and shot some video holding the camera about a foot from the right side of the engine, let it run a little and shut it off. Then I did the grambo trick. See vulcan verses if you aren't familiar with this quick bandaid for noisy cam chain. It just unsticks the tensioners without removing them. Anyhow, after I did the grambo trick, I started up the bike and held the camera in exactly the same location. You can hear the difference on the sound clip. First half of the clip is before grambo, and you can hear the clicking very clearly. About half way through the clip, you'll hear the sound change. That's where I edited in the after grambo sound. Notice the clicking is gone. Cool! Now I can ride until my APE's come in!

That's it! Just before halfway, it sounds like you revved the enging and made the sound go away. Or, you stopped and started recording again. In any case, the second half of the recording sounds like the sound isn't there. By design?

It's two recordings bump edited together. You're right, just when I start to rev the engine the second time is when the edit hits and the second recording starts. I wanted it this way to be able to immediately hear the difference. It's subtle but it's definitely different.

Well done. It is subtle, but if you crank your speakers a bit, you can definitely hear the tappity-tappity.

Well, there's like two sentances on the back of the package. I asked Dianna since she has them and it's an easy job. Directions are here in the verses: https://www.vn750.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1079

OK I did the grambo trick today, after doing it realized they weren't making that much noise to start with. But anyhow, is it normal for some oil to come out of there, especially the rear cynlider?

It is normal. Some say that the front acct needs more oil, that the lack of oil is the reason that it goes bad.
