The all new Nihilo Concepts Manual Cam Chain Tensioner has been tested and developed in conjunction with the factory teams to provide the best cam tensioner available on the market today. Fits KTM / Husqvarna 250 and 350 four strokes. This tensioner is a direct replacement for part number 77336008000
It’s refined construction and design provides accurate adjustment without the possibility of cam chain slippage. The OEM tensioner is held tight by oil pressure and if oil flow is restricted even for a few seconds the stock tensioner can lose pressure and the chain can jump causing catastrophic damage to you motor. Professional teams like Red Bull KTM and Rock Star Husqvarna don’t like talking that chance that’s why they run the Nihilo Manual tensioners.
A solid Stainless steel pusher is attached to a threaded aluminum insert with an aluminum lock nut to hold everything in place. A small "O" ring and OEM brass washer keep the engine sealed tight. The Nihilo manual tensioner re-uses the OEM brass crush washer and incorporates a beveled edge that self-centers the washer for a perfect fit and seal. There is no longer the need to block off the oil jet because the threaded insert blocks the jet pushing more oil pressure to the top of the motor.
Eliminates Cam Chain slippage.
Eliminates Cam Seizure because extra oil is directed to the Cams and Crank assembly.
Installs with stock washer, includes oil jet plug and installation instructions.
