Suzuki GSX600f cam chain replacement and valve adjust


Some pics of the repair on my Suzuki GSX600f (katana).
This is not a tutorial! I will try to link the repair guide at the bottom.
The engine made some strange noises, one engineer said it was the cam chain and the other told me it where the valves..
I knew it wasn’t the chain , I already checked that when I cleaned the carbs.

Right … let’s do both then 🙂

I wasn’t expecting shim valves 🙁 no problem but I don’t have any shims so had to order them.

the old value was worn away so I had to measure them with a caliper.
