Thanks for the heads-up there Malcolm.

How often would you do them? I can't remember off the top of my head, and I think I might need to do it sooner rather than later.

the GS im fitting them to at the moment had been standing for around 7 years in frogy land,
then bought over here were somone fitted cam belt and told the new owner he had to fit one second hand tensioner, as the original one was to baddly rusted,

whilst i have got it all striped down to do the oil leaks i found that both tentioners have very rusty surface's, and the bearings are very noisey :evil: [-X ,
pluss the retainning nuts had never been undone in a month of sundays,
so they must have prised the old belt off and new back on :shock: :roll:

also i removed the crank case breather to clean the mesh and found the retaining spring was only about a third of its corect length, so it was rattling around not doing out,
