Cam chain tensioner upgrade

I have a 2005.5 950 adventure with 60,000 Km's
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.

When you are changing the tensioners you can check the wear on the timing chains by measuring the distance from the loosened tensioner to the cylinder. See the service manual for details.
