Just seeking advice from those out there that understand the cam chain life more than I do. Does this look like it needs to be replaced or is there still some life left in it?

If the part of the slot you can see is as long as it is wide then the chain is worn out. When the chain is new the slot is not visible. Looks as if your chain is near end of life ?

thats what I was thinking but I can't see the flat spots on the sides of the slots yet so I was thinking it might still have some life left. Just wanted to double check before I damage the engine.
