    Good looking ride, Lucky. If I may make a suggestion, if you wish to continue using a chain tensioner, contact turbobuick1 here on the forums. He has a GREAT tensioner that mounts to the side of the engine and is spring-loaded. The stock ones are junk as far as I'm concerned. And they've been known to come loose and fall into the spokes, sending you on a flight without a plane.

    I've had mine for awhile now and it has performed FLAWLESSLY. Best 40 bucks I've ever spent.
