It has been suggested to me that I replace the tensioners as a maintenance procedure.
Is this a matter of pulling the old ones out and putting the new ones in.
Or is there something else I have to do as part of the procedure.
I had a look through the H.O.W. But I did not find my answer.
Thank you for any advice you can give me.
I just replaced mine on my 04 950. Tools required: 8mm Allem w/ball end. small wire for hooking tensiner body. I bought new caps also. Pump/Lube up the new ones withthe type of oil you use. My bike is much quieter overall and on start up now. Have fun.
May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.
