Re: Why hello there! (Acton, MA)
Yes I do use a DIY spring loaded tensioner. You can't see it with the saddle bags in the way. Even without the bags on it is very hard to see the tennsioner. Also I added a steering limiter, the front wheel only swings about 110 Deg.(this allows the f-tank to mount forward without getting hit).
The engine mount is also DIY and adjustiable. Yes I would like to see the bars mounted but I will look for some that don't need modification. I would also like to see a pic of the spring seat.
