where to get a cam chain tensioner?

Hello all, I'm dealing with a 4-4.5k rpm rattle and I suspect it's coming from the cam chain. Since I've got the non updated tensioner, does anyone know where to get a new one before I start disassembling? cheers claudio.

Depending on the year of bike I would check and make sure that your bike doesn't have a Service recall, my 07 F4r just broke its cam chain tensioner 7600 miles and found out there was one on mine, the part is paid for but had to pay for labor.

There isn't a recall on this issue with the DOTARS (Australia) announcement. Hmm maybe a report could go in?

But nonetheless I've purchased the part and it isn't too hard to replace. However I forgot to notice which way up the tensioner goes back in...can anyone offer any advice? Thanks.

I should pm AdeCritten about this subject as he has recently fitted one.
Don't remove the old one until you are au-fait with the procedure or you could end up right in the mire..; )

Thanks for the replies, I'm on a 910R. The central bolt is removed first and then the other two. The rattling noise that I thougth was caused by the chain tensioner wasn't, after removing it, it all seems good, 3 nothces out and no cracks at the roll pin connection....oh well at least I know it can't fail when I need it to be reliable. Hmmm... will need to track down that rattle.....valve clearances next! And yes, don't move that crank!
