The two sides use different tensioners so you can't fit the left-side parts to the right. AFAIK, there are no oilhead retrofit options for the right side. I'm not sure whether that's because the right-side tensioner is unchanged from the oilhead to the hexhead, or because the right-side hexhead tensioner won't fit an oilhead. I supposed you could replace the right-side parts with new parts of the old design, but I doubt it would do a thing.

I wouldn't worry about "even wear" - this isn't going to effect your throttle-body sync or anything. We're talking about a noise issue mainly.

There is fundamental mechanical difference between the left and right side
cam chain dampners. If you read the threads I listed you'll see how they differ.

30 minutes later- and I'm eating my cake- and what a piece it is!! I ujust took off the throttle body and off it came- no spring problems-came out on it's own accord, and a magnet to remove the one inside the cylinder. I do suggest having the new o-ring though. Sounds great now to boot!!
Thanks for the photo-tutorial- I love this stuff!!

Bluhduh

So after a couple thousand miles, my noise is back! There is no knocking noise at start-up still but at around 2800 rpm, it starts knocking. It goes away at about 3000, comes back at about 3200, then quiets down a bit as I rev higher. The "old" clacking noise was more of a soft "thug" now its a much sharper "clack". Maybe its time to get that 5000 mile old 10-40 BMW oil outta my engine? Any other ideas? Valves?

Your noise may be either the butterfly shafts in your TB's or perhaps your rocker arm end play. The HoW has a write up that covers the rocker end play adjustment. Dealing with the butterfly shaft is either a replace it, live with it, or try and re-bush the plain bearings in the TB's.

Question Torque on the new tensioner?

I think I read someplace that the torque on the new tensioner needs to be 32Nm. I just got these parts in and will be putting the new tensioner in place shortly...how do I get a torque wrench on this? I see places in the thread where one isn't used - did anyone get a wrench on this without removing the front suspension swingarm?

TIA.

I just torqued it by feel. I doubt exact torque hear is terribly critical - you're basically just sealing up the opening.

Did it last night. It turned an already quiet engine (relatively anyway) into an almost silent engine. Even after hanging out all night on its sidestand - no clackety-clack for three to five seconds on startup.

Thanks for all the help everyone!

I just ordered the parts from Chicago BMW as well. $55.38 plus 5 bucks for shipping, including the TB O-ring. The guy knew exactly what I wanted when I called and even suggested adding the o-ring. Knowledgeable, I like that.

This is after I had called the dealer in Minneapolis and they wanted $77.00 for the parts, without the o-ring, picked up at the store! I did order some crush washers, a couple key blanks and some parts for the BMW system cases. They were consistantly 15-20% higher than Max BMW's fiche. Somebody is making some money there.

I think from now on, when I need parts for the bike, Chicago BMW is the place!

I'll bet you a final drive that they're sitting in a huge pile with all the other 'net-ordered parts from the week of the 13th. Call and raise a polite stink and they should arrive on your doorstep a little bit faster.
