Camchain tensioner

Post by muttley1 on Thu 11 Oct 2018, 10:22 am

More fun spannering ahead then. My spare cb5 has a fair old camchain tick/rattle that's not going away when I rev the bike, so new tensioner then.

Has anyone done this fix and do I need to make up a little key as per the Haynes manual?

Cheers

Haven't done it myself, but I do know others who've used a small screwdriver instead of the key.

I made mine myself but I have seen them available on eBay. I'll see if I can find a link when I get a moment.
