tbh, i'd just undo the valve cover bolts and check 100% the cam marks line up, again you only need to lift the valve cover 5-10mm.

Just screw out the tension and then take the whole assembly out. So long as you don't turn over the engine with them out then no problems.
The tensioner is just a spring loaded pin. The actual rubbing strip is inside the engine.

Thanks all.
Amazing the different things you read isn't it. Some advise to just go and give it a good hoon, as it may simply just be on the cusp of moving to the next notch. Not uncommon on some Honda's and Kawa's apparently. They get really noisy and then suddenly adjust! I'll just ride it carefully for a few days and see what happens - the noise is not "really" bad at this time. I will let you know what happens and update though.

Hey Sid,

From what I have felt and seen of the tensioner when I had them out, they don't have a 'next notch' on the Hyo ones. They're a constant rate spring.

I could be wrong, but I doubt it, since I had one in my hand and wound it back up to fit the locking mechanism back in it. I had a pretty good look at it whist it was out. I can't really see how such a thing would prove unreliable, unless the spring, or the pokey out pin thingie were to break. It can't really wear per-say.

Thanks mate,

I reckon it maybe weak springs due to the lack of use for months.
I'll ride it for a bit and see what happens buddy. It's not that noisy I'd panic just yet - more annoying if you like... ;)

You should hear my non-Hyo bike. I thought to myself that I wanted to try the ultra premium Motul 300V oil. Man but that made it noisy! It sounds like someone dropped a thousand ball bearings on a ceramic tile floor.

What was causing your noise in the end mate?
