I will highly encourage you to check the valve tappet clearance and FIX the Oil Leak!
There is No Need to inspect the cam chain guide under the crankshaft on a 25,000 mile KLR. One can see the forward stationary cam chain guide & the rear movable cam chain guide when looking Down the cam chain tunnel with the valve cover removed.
Are you going to do the Doo-Hickey when you pull the rotor off?
The Engine Balancer Chain, sprockets, guides, and LOCKING lever (Doo-Hickey) are a completely separate System.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
