Exclamation Valve Realignment

Can anyone realign or know where I can get the valves of a 4 stroke engine realigned? My 99 Honda CBR F4 is making a ticking and is progressively getting louder and I believe it to be coming from the valves and cylinders. Please help! Thanks!

I just had a tire replaced there and they were jerks about it. Call me old fashion, but still believe in customer service. Anywhere else?

Check the cam chain tensioner. That's a normal maintenance item on that bike. Needs replacement.

I know this is an old thread, but yeah the cam chain tensioners on the CBR1000 are next to useless. There have been many upgrades, with updated part numbers, but Honda still couldn't get it right... I prefer a mechanical tensioner to the hydraulic.... Anyways, hope that you got it sorted.... Get them to set the valve clearances at the same time.....
