removing cam chain tensioner,

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I am wanting to take out my cam chain tensioner and give it a look over for wear. Do I have to have the bike @tdc or any special position to remove and replace the unit, Or can it just be removed and replaced? I just checked my valves and doing some other maintenance and just feel like checking the cct. Thanks!

You do not have to have the engine set to TDC to remove the tensioner. Just DO NOT turn the engine over while it's out.

The torsion spring of the tensioner unit is usually the thing to fail.
