Tensioner????????? is that the silly doodle that i turfed into the spares pile? I guess that my method of shimming the rear engine mount is the wrong way to do it then..........but it does significantly reduce the vibration of my bike so i will leave it like it is. actually when the tensioner ate half the spokes out of my rear wheel i went with this route.
