Hi everyone I tried searching no luck.I am doing the valve adj on my 2014 1190 adv and when I went to reset the camchain tensioner's when I pressed down the rear on it felt notchey and no oil came out,the front one not as notchey and oil came out is this normal or is the rear on on the way out.Bike did not sound to loud last time it ran.
Thanks Mike

1190 camchain tensioner

Do you have the repair manual that shows how to reset them?
Here it is if not for reference:



These hydraulic tensioners are prone to cause a lot of issues on RC8's. I replaced mine with manual tensioners. I think because both cams are chain driven (no gear like on 950/990) and the chain only has ~90deg of contact on each cam it doesn't take much variation in chain tension to have the cams oscillate (out of time) during cycle. Mechanical tensioner is more robust and the way to go if you have any doubts at all, IMO.

oem tensioners are crap.

if you miss a shift or hit false neutral at redline you could spit a valve shim into the head or timing chain galleries.

djh or dirt tricks

I have the dirt tricks. looks oem from ouside.

I have no experience with manual tensioners. How often do they need to be adjusted?

I ride a lot of miles per year, can you just check them with every valve service?

With a broken in engine, it will be pretty much a set it and forget it thing that you could just check with each valve service or if your engine starts to sound cacophonous.

On a brand new engine, I would check them every 1000mi for the first few times to account for initial chain stretch.

It couldn't be easier to adjust. It is basically a bolt with a jam nut.

Oooo... Those would be better. But I thought there was some kind of customization needed for the 1195cc mill? Something about not long enough or some such issue? Does he have plug and play option for RC8/1190ADV?

oem part numbers are the same. he did not have 1190 engine to test.

I just inquired with Dirt tricks to see if they have these available. Thanks for the info!
