Dont always trust the dealer.. Of course I never have taken anything to a dealer myself so really I cant say that but the majority of the time I dont think they know what they are talking about.I think what I heard with mine when my tensioner went out it was the chain slapping against the case. So I just think over a period of time with it loose in there its bound to screw something up or the chain come off the teeth and bend a valve and so fourth.

Finally some good news! Buddy of mine is a mechanic and we tried taking the tensioner out and applying pressure to the guide and the noise dissapeared. once the pressure was off the noise was back. He had only one concern and it was how much pressure do you apply to the screw. he adjusted it and once he let it go it sprung back but noise is now gone. Anybody know anything about adjustments?

I don't think the tensioner is adjustable, replace it for the best results.

It should be an automatic adjustment, It seems alot of prople are having issues with the tensioner.

From the manual

The lifter should not go into the lifter body when pushed. when the shaft inside the lifter body is turned clockwise with a screw driver the lifter shaft should be pulled into the body, it should snap back out when the screwdriver is removed.

Ride it if the noise comes back, replace the tensioner.

Im Positive its non ajustable. Just replace it with a new one. When your on the trails its a great piece of mind to have something that wont fail.I think I paid 60.00 or 70.00 dollars for it.
