Cam chain tensioner

Post by marcus gerhold »

Greetings, I need to replace mine as she sounds like a bag of spanners!
I could do with some advice on what type and where to purchase.
She is a 2000 Storm.
Thanks
Marcus

It may be that your whole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

Here's a link on how to rebuild your OEM unit, I can guide you on how to improve it for the sake of longevity if you like. If you go the manual route, I only recommend APE from direct experience. Just make sure you set the tension correctly and use green loctite on the CCT hardware or an equivalent.
