I think you are half right. Go to your dealer or call Suzuki and ask if a newer model cam chain adjuster will fit your bike. like a 2001 .. Stay with Suzuki parts though.

Several aftermarket companies make manually adjustable tensioners which are superior to any of the automatics, but require the owner to monitor the tension, and adjust as required.

Yes, i know that Yoshimura makes this special part but, it's tension adjuster needs to monitor the tension every 1000 Km ......



I think that is too much work...... pull up the tank, the airbox ecc ecc ...



( you must to use a dynamometric tool ..... )







i think to use the tension adj of suzuki 1300 but i read that it has the same problem .....



the gsx 600 2000 edition has the same problem .......







i think that suzuki doesn't know how to do a stupid but essential part ......







BUT I LIKE MY SUSY TO MUCH : P







tnx to all

I would go with the manual tensioner. It needs to be adjusted every 4K, but is much more solid and will save you a lot of time and headache. You can get them from APE Racing. I've got a step-by-step up on my website under the FAQ question on how to install and adjust it. Even the new replacement tensioner from Suzuki is junk so don't bother.

Hope that helps, I just signed up when I was looking at your post. I like the board looks well laid out.
