Hi! Hope this finds you well amidst this pandemic! Quick question, the rattle is quieter when cold started but louder as it gets warmer and loudest at 2500-3500 rpms... any thoughts? thanks so much!

I would suspect the primary chain tensioner has failed or the balance shaft chain tensioner if you have one.

thanks! it has both! i suspect t occurred when i started it and had to give it a little gas... reveled to 2.5k on startup... thanks! hoping i can get to it during the summer months... also hoping it the primary tensioner since it is still on the factory 3 leaf design...
