Tensioner bad

Recommended Posts

From what I saw, just removing it and see it, not big deal removing it, hard part is give it the right tension.

What year is you bike?, my mechanic removed mine and replaced for the Tokyo mods, manual tensioner, he told me that the auto tensioner was good bud he rather deal with the manual.

So I can send you pictures and can compare wear.

Also if the spring have no rebound that might be a red flag.

Let Me know.

I would replace it , just to be safe, my 08 tensioner failed on my 450 , same design as the 250 and it bent valves.
