I went through at least three of the BMW tensioners on my 2007 K1200GT. At least two of them were the newer model. They all failed. When the last one was rattling like crazy, an expert friend came by and installed an APE tensioner, which fixed the problem.
Now the rattle is back (bad!), and I need to adjust the APE tensioner. It should be simple, really, but I have not done it before. There is a first time for everything, I suppose.
