Hi guys I just want to know what the hell is going on. I replace the cam chain 8 months ago when i just bought the bike because it was ticking, that cost me a heap of cash and then recently i went to a mechanic to put in some mods and the guy said my cam chain needs to be replace...err
Does it take that fast to wear out a cam chain...what the hell, its costing me a fortune...any advice would be helpful.

Did you do the tensioner replacement???? Sounds to me like it's too tight.

Why is it just the cam chain?????
What kind of Cam Chain Tensioner do you have in the bike? Auto (OEM) or Manual (Aftermarket)?
The chain will not stretch by itself, it does sound like either the manual or auto tensioner is putting too much tension on the chain.

Yeah, be careful that the mechanic either isn't taking you for a ride, or just is shitty. You don't want to replace something that isn't broke.
