Re: FITTING A CAM CHAIN TENSIONER, HELP PLEASE
It should take less than 45 minutes for the total job. You just have to remove the right side mid fairing and I usually remove the metal bracket that attaches to the rear corner of that mid fairing too. Two bolts to pop the old one off, clean up the engine surface where the new one bolts up, install a new gasket, use the special made tool ( or thin blade screwdriver) to manually back the tensioner off, and then put in the two bolts, torque to spec. Remove the special tool or screwdriver, wrench on the end cap bolt with a new copper or aluminum washer and you're done.
