07' 650 Timing Chain

Hi, new member with a question.

I got a 07' Prowler 650 with about 1400 miles and I think 150 hours. Recently while riding came to a stop it was idling and then died. towed it back home, noticed it was spitting fuel out of the carburetor. Pulled valve cover off, looked at manual and noticed the timing was off a tooth or 2. Put back to the marks and it started back up like normal.

Looking at it, it looks like the timing chain is worn as the tensioner is maxed out and the chain looks like it still has some slop and I can lift the chain up at the top of the cam sprocket. So my question is, how often does the timing chain need replaced? What additional parts will I need, as I want everything ready before I pull it. And any tips on replacing the timing chain.

Thanks,

Welcome to the site, the 07's have had problems with the oil pump driven gear failing and not oiling the top end. That may not have anything to do with your timing chain issue but keep an eye on your pressure, mine failed around 2600 miles and I end up putting in a new engine. Do a search on the site there's a lot of info on it.

Mostly trail riding in the desert. Next time I get to work on it I will pull the rocker covers off and see how much oil is getting up there. the cam gear didn't look worn at all, it mostly looks like the chain is just the wrong size/ extremely worn. I could lift the chain off of the gear with everything installed, and have separation between the two.

mlh1962, how did you install your oil gauge.

SOUNDS LIKE MAYBE A CHAIN AND TENSION ER AND YOU MIGHT BE FINE/Yea azjeeps there are several post on here about oil gauges several of us members have installed them among other gauges.
