'00 GS The new tensioner didn't help the pinging at all. Quieter at startup and less knocking when it gets hot ,so the update is still worthwhile.
Normally the pinging isn't a big problem, but when riding at high altitudes , it's down right infuriating. For all intensive purposes it's a speed governor on my bike. Even over 6k in 4th or 5th ,the dam bike just will not pull past 90mph.
