My new '01 vn750

Hi all. Thanks for all of the welcomes and help so far. Here is a link of my '01. I took a video of it idling and revved toward the end. I would like any insights that anyone may be able to give about how it sounds. Mainly with any of the tapping i'm hearing from the right cylinder. I may be overreacting. This is my first bike in 10 years and just want some other opinions

Thanks much

Sounds like a cam chain tensioner. normal on these. There is many links to correct this.
You can put in new springs but that is not a perminent fix, you can do a Manual cam chain replace (MCC) that is the best fix.

thats kinda what i thought reading all the posts.. i have done the grambo trick, but i guess thats not enough. This bike has just 7700 miles on it. One thing I am confused about the MCCTs is on their install.. Are they just pull the old ones out and the new ones go in and thats it?? How do you adjust them for the correct tension?

also .. i'll probably be getting the TOC MCCTs soon..I just want to understand you CAN adjust the new tensioners both ways while the bike is running?? I read before you cant do that with the stock ACCTs..only CCW with those

MCCTs are adjusted while the bike is running. I also ordered from TOC and found them to be well made.
