It is also less prone to having tight links/rollers and run smoother through the sprockets.
I still run the stock tensioner and as it is right now with the #415 chain running over it, its a pretty tight fit. If I upgrade to the #41 will it not fit on the chain tensioner since the #41 I've heard is wider.
