I'm looking for a new manual cam-chain tensioner as my CBR600 f3 is sounding a bit rattly! Wheres the best place to get one from? Honda want £90 for a new(automatic) one. No sign on Ebay.

but if you tighten them too tight it will wear the cam chain too quick and if you dont adjust it get ready for a new motor :?


also the honda uprated one will be fine they are made to put a certain amount of pressure on the cam chain unlike a manual one you cant get it wrong :wink:

Ok. I got the impression that the manual one was an upgrade because it wouldn't deteriorate with time,, but I don't want to risk my engine! There are no sources that you know for an OEM automatic one then?

only honda!!


manual ones are ok if adjusted properly but the adjuster could be a right pain to get to and you could forget or adjust it wrong its easily done :?


not worth the risk
