    APE Manual Can Chain Tensioner GSXR1000 09-16

    This single part has probably saved more Busa motors from serious damage than any other part. Racers know that you can not trust high performance motors to automatic cam chain adjusters. Easy to install, the manual tensioner can not back out allowing the cam chain to jump the sprockets as the auto adjusters have been known to do.

    APE manual cam chain tensioners are designed to replace the automatic and hydraulic tensioners on high performance engines. The automatic adjusters can back out when the throttle is closed suddenly at high rpm. This allows the cams to go momentarily out of time, and can result in bent valves and/or serious engine damage. Hydraulic tensioners have a tendency to put too much tension on the chain guide under high rpm/high oil pressure conditions, resulting in premature wear.
