Thread: Chain Tensioner
04-15-2013, 07:55 PM #1
Read some older threads but didn't find an exact answer. Whats the best way to go when replacing timing chain tensioner? 04 rxp with 1 slight decking on head and stock tensioner. RR one is over $200 and don't really want to go that route. 06 and newer better than 04-05?

Yea, that was the thread you referred me to in another post. It only confused matters more..lol. 10 different opinions and no definite answer. Jerry posted there that the RR must be used if head is milled.

Let's stop the confusion for a light decking no need to go with a rr tensioner. If you go anything over twenty thousands (as Frank Said) Then you will need More Tension That the rotax Provides. I was at the same Point a couple of years ago when decking my 06 Block.

milled and decking are two different things

06 and up tensioner is fine IMO. The RR puts a great deal of stress on the chain unless there has been a great deal of material removed from deck and head.
