Drive chain tension!!!!

I have a 1993 GSXR 750. Unfortuantely it seems that my left side drive chain tension-er has the threads stripped out within the swing-arm. I cant keep the chain tight enough so have not been able to ride for a few days. Has anyone had this issue and if so how did you fix it. Is there a vendor that sells aftermarket tensioners for that year 1993. So far I have not been able to find any. Thanks for your help in advance.Xvideos Xnxx Chaturbate

Put another Nut on the tensioner bolt to hold it in place and then lock them together. It won't last forever, but It'll get the job done for a year or two. I'd talk to a machine shop about getting it drilled out and a heli-coil put in the swingarm because that's going to pretty much be your best option for a permanent fix.

That is strange old tensioner.

The good part is that both stud and special nut are still available from Suzuki for less than $20.

This is the parts list for the adjuster. If you need the stud also you will find it listed under "rear swing arm"
