Manual Cam Chain Tensioner - BMW 2006-08 K1200S, K1200R, K1200GT, 2009-later K1300S K1300GT Motorcycle - by APE Race Parts
Racers know that you can not trust high performance motors to automatic cam chain adjusters.
Easy to install, the manual tensioner can not back out allowing the cam chain to jump the sprockets as the auto adjusters have been known to do.
The APE Pro Series manual adjuster replaces the factory BMW tensioner.
The unique design features a CNC-machined aluminum body, stainless hardware, and an adjuster that uses a 4mm hex wrench for easy access in tight conditions.
CAUTION: INCORRECT INSTALLATION OF A MANUAL CAM CHAIN TENSIONER MAY RESULT IN SEVERE ENGINE DAMAGE. IF YOU ARE NOT CERTAIN HOW TO INSTALL THE CAM CHAIN TENSIONER THEN IT IS ADVISED THAT IT BE INSTALLED BY A SHOP WHO IS FAMILIAR WITH THIS PROCESS.
To set the tensioner adjustment, rotate the engine forward while screwing the tensioner bolt in. When you feel the engine tensioner parts (guide, rollers, etc.) make contact with the moving cam chain, back the tensioner bolt out 1/4 turn and tighten the jam nut.
DO NOT over-tighten the cam chain, as cam chain giude damage could occur. Be sure jam nut is tight against the tensioner body when complete.
