The spring loaded tensioner is not recommended by many of us on here, but there may be a few that have rigged one up that works OK.

I made one for one of my bikes last year and it caused me more grief than it was worth so I got away from it and just stick to a ridgid type adjustable Idler/Tensioner set up.

which is what the stock set up is but it can be improved upon by making a better bracket or just adding some extra bracing if it's needed.

Why is it that you want a spring tension type?
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
