Snowbum has a bit to say on this & also suggests consideration as to whether the tebnsioner & spockets are changed.

I changed the tensioner & smaller sprocket on my '78 R100RS.

I've a '91 R100GS. The cam chain was replaced not long before I bought it. I can hear it now & see the flicker in timing markls when I attempt to time it. I suspect that just the chain was replaced then, and other worn parts have contributed to its early demise.
