Cam tensioner on \'97 GSXR 600

i recently took my bike in to have the valves adjusted because it sounded like it needed it. What i found out is that i either have a bad cam chain or a bad cam chain tensioner. i am wondering if anyone knows how much it will cost to have either of them fixed or any other solutions to my problem.

Your dealer should have told you your tensioner was bad. Suzuki made junk ones from 96-99. Most everyone who wanted to fix it permenant put a APE manual tensioner on. They cost about $40.00 and can be purchased at various vendors. Check out http://www.aperaceparts.com
Very easy to install if you know what your doing. If not flat rate should be about an hour
