    this engine has a cam chain mate,be careful as these have been known to snap.the oil spray can sometimes become blocked,this leads to not enough oil getting onto the chain.

    Regular oil changes prevent this, & besides the oil jets onto the chain are wider now to avoid the problem.

    With correct servicing there should be no problem with the chain
