Default Re: Dual Sprung Chain Tensioners

I understand what he's saying about the top of the chain 'flopping' while engine braking... but so far there hasn't been any reported problems from only using a spring loaded tensioner on the bottom.

I've also thought about a dual spring tensioner; but I always go back to just building my bikes without any tensioner.
