I wish I could have seen this coming, but there’s not much I can do now about it. In some regards, it makes sense to buy aftermarket parts, but in others, it clearly isn’t. I purchased an OEM VTC gear from Honda because I’ve heard of countless problems with them over prolonged use. I didn’t hear anything bad about the timing parts other than the chain stretches like every other timing chain, so I figured I would save myself a couple bucks by not buying an OEM timing kit. I surely regret it.

The aftermarket cheap timing chain kit that I purchased and installed last year lasted me 32,000 kilometres, which is MUCH less than how long my original OEM kit lasted. Long story short, stick with OEM components when you know they work! I’ve included the Genuine parts and sealants needed to complete the job.
