Good product. Fast delivery.
Recieved my order next day of order. Tensioner kit was missing one screw to hold the body together. Luckily I have a large assortment of hardware. Tensioner was easy to install and immediately engine noise was gone. Works perfectly.

Tusk auto tensioner
Really good quality and machined well cant beat the price I am a welder at a machine shop and I bet they would want 500 to make this. Installed very easy but on the 900 you have to take the 3 bolts out of the shifter cable bracket to get it but no big deal and it is very close to the bracket once installed but shouldnt be a problem. I did not notice and difference in noise at start up but my stock tensioner was in good shape still it looked like but now I dont have to worry about it going out on the trail. Overall it's a good buy!

I needed to try something as the startup noise is embarrassing or during high temps at idle. Decided to try this and now it's nice and quite on startup. I'm a BELIEVER!!! :)

I gave it a 4 cause I don't have any miles on it other than a bunch of cold starts in the garage. The noise is gone i assure you!

Just got this product yesterday and installed as per the directions last evening. When pulling the key at the end of installation we did not hear a pronounced pop of the push rod. We tried using a screwdriver as indicated in instructions and still didn't hear anything. Started machine up and it sounded fine noise went away but I'm wondering if we should pull it and start again to make sure we hear the pop. What is your recommendation? Thanks
Eric S on Nov 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Pull the bolt out of the center of the tensioner and then insert a small screwdriver. Very slightly rotate it clockwise and then release. If it rotates back counterclockwise on its own than everything is good to go. That indicates that it is tensioning the cam chain.
