    Chains are supposed to last the lifetime of the engine, hence there's usually no specified schedule for changing them. On the 2.2, the chain sometimes gives problems, hence many people change the chain/tensioner at 100k or less. The Z20NET, however, is more reliable and chain issues are rare - so if yours, like most people's 'NETs, isn't giving any trouble, then no need to worry about it. Leave it be.

    Got to agree with jezzy, if its quite then leave it alone. Changed mine last week due to a rattle on start-up. Quite as a mouse now
