Re: How to fit camchain tensioner in the slot?

How to fit camchain tensioner in the slot?

I hope this is the right place for this question. When I dropped the sump to do the starter clutch I noticed that my camchain tensioner wasn't in the bottom slot. I found Ibsen's thread about replacing the tensioner but I can't get it to stay in the slot while trying to get the screw through the hol...

They sure are, it was this site that helped me work out that the starter clutch was deaded and that the camchain tensioner wasn't in the bottom slot (next job). I've been lurking for quite a while so thought I'd better say Hi. :)

Looking for 650 Nighthawk parts in UK

Hi all, noob here. I'm looking for a standard 4 into 4 exhaust system and seat in the UK. There are plenty for sale on ebay but they are mostly located in the US and as you can imagine, the postal costs are astronomical. Add to this the Import Duty of 20% on anything over $15 USD and you get the pic...
