A.P.E. Camchain Tensioner

I have just fitted an A.P.E. manual Camchain tensioner to my '05 K1200S with 32k on it. It was very easy to fit, and has stopped the dreaded rattle on start-up. Maybe the rattle would not have caused any damage, but it is such an horrible sound - it's worth the cost of the tensioner not to hear it every time I start it. Happy.

I have had mine fitted for over 30k miles. Best thing i have done to the bike!

I know someone one here disagrees with me on this, but it idles much smoother now.
