KTM Timing Chain Tensioner upgrade

Hi all,

I own a KTM 400 EXC EU 2011, for the past two year I have replaced the Timing Chain Tensioner two time due to load noises.

I read a bit and found the following product:

Dirt Tricks KTM Chain Tensioner.


It seems that this can solve the issue permanently.

I would like to know if this part will fit my bike?

Does anyone had any experience with this?

Thanks for all the help,


08-11 400-530 OEM tensioners were the same part. It should fit, but might want to call to confirm, not sure why they don't list the 11 model. My OE one lasted 200 hours, then went to a manual DJH tensioner.

My friend bought one of those before he even started his brand new 2011 sx250f and he hasn't had any trouble with it.

The DJH is very nice.

Hi all,

Just ordered the part, hope it will solve the issue permanently, I will update.

Thanks for all the help.

All dealers are out of stock in Dirt Tricks Timing chain tensioners. Does anyone have one that they would sell me asap for my 2010 250 xcf-w? Please email crashklein@aol.com or call Steve 203-445-0273
