    does the cam chain look stretched? possibly over tightened when originally fitted and the latest mileage has stretched it to the point where it has come off the teeth. Personally I would go back to oem bike mechanic told me that stick with them as it is only very rarely they fail in real terms

    The replacement was probably sprayed gold, and made in Taiwan. Bling rules.
