While doing a triple bypass I had a broken bolt in the front cover during extraction the boss broke as a result I have to replace the front cover in doing so I noticed the oil pump chain was very loose.

This bike has just under 20,000 miles. I am going to tighten the chain as described in the manual. I just wanted to put this post out there because I have not seen any discussion topics on the oil pump chain. This is something I would not have looked at had I not damaged the front cover. it’s not talked about much and I don’t think most people would bother checking it. There seems to be more threads on the subject in the non turbo forum.

If anyone knows of a source for the chain please post as it is a NLA part. If you know of a suitable replacement post that also
thanks
