2001 929rr CCT help!

Ok, so I have a 2001 929rr Erion and of course it has the standard rattling that I have read every Honda seems to experience. After reading post after post I finally decided to pick me up an APE manual tensioner to take care of it once and for all. So after watching videos and reading posts I figured I could do it myself. WRONG!! The way the OEM CCT buts against the frame, it appears you have to take half the f*&[email protected]$g engine apart to get to that one bolt! Anyone know of a magical rachet that can weasel in there? I picked up an elbow joint and extensions for a 1/4" rachet however I can't reach the bolt! I can almost get in there but I think I started stripping the bolt. Is my only option to remove everything under the gas tank?!?

On my 929 I get the bottom bolt with an 8mm ring spanner from the side. The top bolt I use a flexible extension and quarter-drive socket.
If you wind the tensioner fully back first then there is no load on the tensioner, once you crack the bolts you should be able to remove them by hand. I also suggest replacing the bolts with socketheads to make it easier.

The flexible extension is a must really. It also helps if you have hands like a 4 year old girl too.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.
