Kawasaki Ninja zx6r problem.
Hi guys. I am having an issue with my 2007 Kawasaki Ninja zx6r. It started developing a ticking noise coming from the engine so I replaced the automatic timing chain tensioner with a manual one about three months ago. It helped it for a little while but recently starting becoming more noticeable again. The other day I decided to try tightening up the tensioner a little to see if that would help get rid of some of the ticking but I tightened it down to much and it shut off the engine. Now when I try to start the bike it will not start. It turns over but wont fire up. I have tried charging the battery, jumping it, loosening the tensioner and playing back and forth with that to see if it would help. Nothing I have tried is working. I don't know what I did but I am hoping its nothing to serious. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas on what the problem might be anything would help at this point.

Welcome Aubeattie! Did you get the right tensioner? I know someone who had a problem and its just happen he got the wrong one the causes the noise.
