    Kinda curious to see a pic.... I mean if he really wanted to he can change out the cam gears and just run the older crank. At least 2/3 are using the full with of the chain. Btw are the gides bigger?

    I am sure he changed the cam gears (I did) but left the 15 crank. The 2016 cam gears and chain guides keep the 2016 chain aligned enough for the 15 crank.

    like I said he uses 15 crank and 15 style cam gear not 16.

    I did not pay attention to the chain guides but I am sure he is running the 16 guides, he has to.

    Could a 16 chain really run on a 15 without anything else? then again if it's run flawlessly wouldn't that point to the chain as the culprit to these failures? hence an old style chain thats cryo treated could do the trick?

    LMFAO spoken by a true Seaēturd fan boy... donít even go down the road of reliability. Itís not even close.

    less than 3% of 14-15 SVHOís have the timing chain issue and Yamaha is fixing them until 2020 even without extended warranty...

    Did you do this yourself? What was cost?

    Usually there's a "3-drink minimum" on thread resurrections
