FAQ
1. What's the basic difference between a used or new adjuster? In terms of reliability or longevity?
A: It varies, can be none or adjuster can get damaged by letting the plunger go all the way out and it will oval the hole a bit.
When I pin these in, it holds the plunger in before the ovaling.  So a little bit of damage doesn't really affect it.  But some people like to not have damaged parts at all.  I started with a used one with 22k miles on it, and I've used it for nearly 100,000 miles since. There's a little bit of damage to the back of the housing where the guide rubs on it besides the initial ovaling.

2. how do you get used adjustors for your mod?
A: I buy new ones and pay for the old ones.  Most people can't wait for me to mod their parts, so I exchange them with ones that have been sent in before by other members.  If I mod your specific parts, it might take a month and I'd lose my mind trying to keep all the parts separate.  best I can do is exchange your plunger for one that's already been mod'd and mod your housing.  then build it with your springs.  When forewarned, I've gotten the parts Saturday morn and shipped them that afternoon.

3. Once I have your mod installed it's good for life of bike right? As in once I eventually need a new cam chain, I can just have the tensioner reset?
A: Yep, the adjuster doesn't wear out, the chain does.  Install a new chain, reset the plunger, put the bolt in the 1st hole and away you go.

4. My tensioner is at ~17mm w/ 11.7k mi. Approximately how many miles until I should change it?
A: That answer varies a lot.  You should change it when the plunger is at 19mm... at 22mm, the hole is ovaled and you're about to grenade your engine.  A conservative estimate is a 1000 miles for every 1mm.  I would guess that the plunger starts out in life at 6 to 9mm extended.  That would give you 11mm for a little more than 11k miles.  So that guess works out for you.

5. Is there any reason not to go with the used version? I assume they are rebuilt, and function equally well?
A: Yes, I check for function before I send them.  Some have a little ovaling, but the plunger once pinned won't go out as far to need the support of the ovaled part of the hole.

6. How does the rebate work?
A: Send the old tensioner assembly to me and I'll evaluate it.  Most get a full rebate.  A little ovaling in the housing is acceptable, grinding of the plunger depends of extent, bent/broken springs are not.  And the operation will be checked.

7.Do you have any ready to ship?
A: I'm making them all the time, but there's a waiting list and I try to contact those waiting longest 1st.  If you have immediate need... prove it... a pic or send me your parts with payment and I'll take care of you asap.

8. Do you take paypal?
A: yes, paypal or money order are preferred.

9.What's your turn around time from sending you chain tensioner to mod and return.
A: Confirm with me that I have the plungers in stock, then send it by Tuesday, it'll be here by Friday, I'll have it back in the mail on Saturday and it'll be back in your hands by Tuesday.

10.What's the best way to ship?
A: I use USPS. 1st class package w/insurance... $5.10 total.  Please rinse with a little gas and put in a zip lock bag with an address label.

11.What do I send for the mod?

Post by mpescatori on 11/15/07 at 06:39:20

Hi Verslagen, just had the mechanic replace cam chain and fit your tensioner.

Question:
The tensioner he returned me has a small spring-loaded catch and the piston is serrated on the top... is this the standard issue item or had it been reworked already (keep in mind my bike is 19 years old and I'm the 6th owner)

The old tensioner does look in fine shape, though, and has a looong spring inside, so when fully compressed it will push against the cam chain with quite some force...

Regards,

Maurizio

Post by Fat Bastard on 07/12/08 at 08:20:33

47200 km = 29329 miles

I didn't measure how far out the plunger was.  I was so eager to put the other one in when the cover was off.  took only a few photos.  It was much easier than expected.  

I would recommend the verslavy to every savage owner. Just so that you don't have to think about the plunger popping out.  Mine was rattling and it was past due.

thanks again.

Ver,

If faced with a choice of which hole of the Verslavy to use, would you choose the one that yields more plunger extension or the one that yields less plunger extension?

TIA!

Use the 1st hole up until the pin bottoms out.  Then switch.  This will keep the spring tension to a minimum.
Or course if you're almost there, change it over if you want.
But I would tend not to want the plunger fully compressed.

What is the advantage of going with this mod instead of the OEM part from BikeBandit?

If you stay with stock, you need to replace the chain, front and rear guides... NOT THE TENSIONER!!!

You only need to replace your tensioner if it looks like this...
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y269/virago125/verslavy2.jpg

And what's to prevent it happening again... nothing!
My mod pins the plunger to the housing, it will never fall out.
And with the 2nd hole you can extend the life of your chain to the full rated life of the chain.  
As it is, the plunger is ready to fall out at half the allowed stretch.
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y269/virago125/verslavy5.jpg

So do you want to pay over $200 every time or every other time your plunger is ready to fall out?
And count yourself lucky, half the time it falls out the cam gets out of time with the crank and piston meets valves.

Man, go with Verslagen's tensioner.  If you put a stock one back in it's only a matter of time (very short time at that) before it does the same thing again.  If you put a new stock tensioner in it will already be extended to the maximum and ready to fall out.  That's a very poor Suzuki design.  I'm going to order one before long myself.
If Verslagen will take my money  :)

I finally got mine swapped by the local shop.  My 2007 has 15K on it and the mechanic asked why I was putting in the new tensioner.  The one he pulled out looks almost new and it wasn't over extended.  

The whole change over including tensioner, gasket , labor and the oil change cost me over $200.  The core charge really wasn't high enough to be any kind of high priority. Now that said... I'll be sending mine back to get some money back :-)

I just got my bike put back together today, been out of state for a couple of weeks. It was easy to do and works great. My 09 only has 8000 miles on it but I'm on the second hole, the pin was nearly at the stop on the first one. When I took it apart the plunger was out 16.5mm I'm sure glad I opened it when I did was going to wait till 1200, that may have been to late . Anyway Verslagen1 did a great job, the price was too cheap. I own a service shop and can't imagine how you do that much work so well for 60 bucks but I'm sure glad you do.

Post by bikertrash on 01/16/12 at 19:34:05

Thanks to all who have helped me with this issue--pulled the crankcase cover today--the original tensioner was extended to right at 20mm--right at its limit.

Verslagen, the old part does not seem to be "wallowed out."  Let me know your preference when I get near the top of the waiting list--I can pull the original to be reworked if that is your preference--thanks.

Title: Re: Verslavy Tensioner Assy (Waiting list)
Post by bikertrash on 01/25/12 at 18:55:12

OK, if the plunger in my old tensioner was extended 20mm, whcih plunger hole do I want to use in the rebuilt part?  The hole on the far end of the plunger, or the hole closest to the receptacle that the plunger slides into?

Title: Re: Verslavy Tensioner Assy (Waiting list)
Post by verslagen1 on 01/25/12 at 20:35:01

far end

I advise to keep it in the 1st hole till it's near the end of travel.
Then transfer to the 2nd hole.  This is to minimize the spring force.

Would you suggest an inspection and measurement of the plunger first, or just replacement?

Believe it or not... this is not a maintenance free bike.
You do have to open it up once in a while to check things out.

Regardless of the miles, if this is a new2u bike, you should open it up and find out what's in there (yes, I've sold lot's of these) and how far the fuse is sticking out.  If you're careful, you can get the cover off w/out tearing it.  But have a new one available just in case.

Of course putting one of these in there asap, will lessen the risk of it going kerboom from the getgo.

Measure how far the plunger sticks out in mm's, subtract 19, times a 1000 and that's about how many miles you've got till you look at it next.  That's usually a pretty safe number, but you should be wary at all times for unusually knocking, grinding, etc.  but you do that anyway... right?

New FAQ response...

9.What's your turn around time from sending you chain tensioner to mod and return.
A: Confirm with me that I have the plungers in stock, then send it by Tuesday, it'll be here by Friday, I'll have it back in the mail on Saturday and it'll be back in your hands by Tuesday.


Quote:
Are the supplies to make these still out of stock?

What I constantly run out of stock are the modified plungers.
I do have new tensioners ready to modify.
Life and heat are getting in the way of getting these done... sorry.

I sell a lot of new ones, but rarely do I get the old ones back.
If I sell you a new one, I offer you $30 to send me the old one back.
A little ovaling is ok, grind marks or other heavy damage are not.
Good springs are worth something too.

Second question is,  besides the safety benefits and longevity of the cam chain,  does this provide any performance upgrades in any way,  be it big or small?
No.

Well I've passed the 19,000 mile mark on my 1996. Most of those miles have been extended runs (40 miles) at 60-75 mph commuting to work or weekend runs.  Some <10 mile runs to town for coffee or errands. I'm thinking I need to quit procrastinating and call Versy quick. What do the resident pundits say?

Added Question
I'm sure the subject of riding style and miles per ride vs. cam chain tensioner wear has been covered but I can't seem to find reference to that info. Has any conclusive evidence or educated guesses been made on this?

My current thinking is large amount of wear is caused by over tensioning during the thermal cycle.  The pawl will click over during the hottest (or coldest) part of the cycle, when it cools down (or heats up) wear will occur until it's at a medium tension.  So, regardless of the tensioner tension wear will occur nearly linear through the miles.

6 to 9mm is my guess how it comes from the factory.  When I did the 1st conversion, it was 9mm out.

So if you take a lot of short trips, your chain won't last as long.
so ride all day, tell your significant other you had to.

so ride all day, tell your significant other you had to.[/quote]

Versy I just found that info and was reading it while you posted your answer :-[. One thing I'm still pondering is some of the group seems to think an easy riding style prolongs the wear and failure of the tensioner. With my 19,000+ miles, very few of them have been easy. I'm more of a "ride it like ya stole it" ( Yeah I know....a 58 year old guy ought to act his age!) kind of guy so my bike seems to go counter to those ideas.
Just a little more info for your research ;)

The telltale noises can be subtle, unless you check it you'll never know.
The 2 that I have started knocking on the case.
When they get far enough along, they pop out going up or down.
Going up they get stuck against the case and stay that way.
Going down results in loud grinding or a sudden halt.
99.999% go down.

I have a quality alert announcement...

Some of the roll pins I've used since 10/28/13 maybe defective.

Some of them are tapered and if I put in the smaller end, may fall out.

Although I test every one, a few may have slipped thru.

Well, at least one did.

So if you've purchased a verslavy from 10/28/13 till now,  be on the alert for the tell tale knocking on the clutch cover.

Anyone finding or concerned they may have one, may return it for repair.

Here is a picture of mine after 13,216 miles. Didn't need to change the gasket.

Verslagen, I sent you my used one a couple months ago. Very well built. Happy Holidays

EDIT: Anyone know what that bolt in the bottom left corner is for? It was coming loose so I tightened it up.

Title: Re: Verslavy Tensioner Assy (vacation)
Post by Mekh on 04/30/15 at 06:56:29

Hi there,

Newcomer here, but having been lurking for the past month or so (have "scanned" pages 1-323 so far :) ) since I got a really good deal on a '94 Savage that has run 55.000km (34.000 miles?) doing mostly long rides around Europe as I understood it, but has been standing still for the past 10'ish years.

While it has been standing still for so long, it has been dragged out every year to be run until well warmed up, then an oil change.

All in all it looks and feels really fine. The only thing I've had to do was replace the front fork seals that started leaking badly after a few hundred km's driving.

Now... the engine has a tick/tick or tingg/tingg sound that at first I interpreted as slight piston slap, but after reading here a lot, I want to check if it may be the cam chain tensioner, which to my understanding is pretty much the only weak point of this fine bike. (Also haven't checked the valve adjustment yet. Intend to do that very soon).

In case it is the cam chain tensioner that is nearing its outer limit, I guess I would want to make me a Verslavy, either by welding or by machining one myself if necessary. I would not want to try and weld this myself, so would have to find someone who can.

I would like to know how long the extension of the tensioner should be.

Greetings from Denmark and thanks for this great forum with so much knowledge(sharing) present.

EDIT:
Maybe I should mention that my intention of fixing one myself is the distance and time involved, due to the fact that I live in Europe and that Verslagen is on vacation till May as I understand it... :)

Size your extension so you can put the second hole about 5/8" over from the 1st.


Sorry for the late reply, but life has been busy lately.
Thank you for the extension distance info!

In case I would like to purchase a Verslavy from you, do you have any experience with dealings from overseas, in this case Denmark?
I'm thinking of prices, shipping, delivery time and so on?

Would you be willing to send a Verslavy towards me, while I send my old one towards you, if I make a downpayment (or whatever it's properly called) to ensure you I'm not pulling any tricks?  :)

I've probably sent more than a dozen up into the nordic countries.
Shipping to most countries is $50 and takes about a week.
Of course there's cheaper ways, slower, uninsured, you can use that to send me yours.
You'll make the full payment of $75 + $50 for shipping + $60 deposit for the adjuster that you promise to send.

I had a chance to open the engine this evening and have a look at the tensioner and I have a slight suspicion that I might benefit from a Verslavy in the near future... https://www.dropbox.com/s/fghtsnxji8ijxmh/20150507-IMG_2225.jpg?dl=0
I can't insert images directly it seems  :(

This is at 56k km (35k miles), with no knowledge of prior maintenance and/or repairs carried out on the engine and/or MC.

Anyway... I would like to purchase a Verslavy from you. What should my next step(s) be and what parts would I need to send to you in exchange for the Verslavy?

If interested, I have a few more photos:

Hi,

I will soon receive my Verslavy and was preparing for it last night and found some residue that looked like liquid gasket at the top oil passage. I thought that I would not need to use liquid gasket, so I wanted to ask about it here.

I also had a look at some photos from "The Savage Companion Photo CD" linked to here: http://suzukisavage.com/cgi-bin/YaBB.pl?num=1199986392

On the photos named "Clutch_Cover_05" and "Clutch_Cover_06" I can see some "Adhesive Sealer", which I haven't seen on the 3'rd party gasket that I have received. It may be on the backside, as I haven't unwrapped the gasket yet.


In case there is no such "adhesive sealer" on my gasket, should I use some liquid gasket at this location and/or would you use some for the entire gasket on one or both sides?

Title: Re: Verslavy Tensioner Assy
Post by verslagen1 on 06/12/15 at 03:48:29

I personally don't use any sealer or dressing on the gasket other than what comes on the oem gasket.

I will oil the surface of the case so I might save the gasket if I have to open it up at a later date.
I have not had a problem with leakage

Title: Re: Verslavy Tensioner Assy
Post by Mekh on 06/15/15 at 10:28:28

I have received the cam chain adjuster. :)
Nice looking job, Verslagen... /thumbsup

I am about to put it on and was looking for what torque I should use and I see 2 Cam chain tensioner related bolts in Chapter 4 - table 2 in the Clymer manual.

One is called "Set bolt" with a rated torque of 20-25Nm and the other is called "Plate bolt" with a rated torque of 8-12Nm.

I assume the bolt I use to mount the tensioner with is the "Plate bolt" and that the tensioner swivels about the "Set bolt" as 20-25Nm seems like too much for an M6 bolt, so... I wanted to ask here just to make sure.

Should I torque this bolt with 10Nm?

PS.
The bolt I'm talking about is the "B" bolt in figure 37 on page 80 in the Clymer manual.

Title: Re: Verslavy Tensioner Assy
Post by raven37 on 09/18/15 at 19:26:11

A couple questions:

How well does the verslavy in an old adjuster work/hold up?

Do you need my adjuster first or can I send it back when I change them out? My bike is my daily driver right now.

Is shipping included or extra?

Any idea, from past orders, on shipping time to Pennsylvania? Asking because my bike is at 13,400mi and I've started to hear a slight tapping. And according to experience/popular opinion around the forum, it's time for a new one.

Title: Re: Verslavy Tensioner Assy
Post by verslagen1 on 09/18/15 at 20:11:21

The very 1st one was used, and that was 80,000 miles ago.
It takes a lickin' and is still tickin'

I have used adjusters waiting.

domestic shipping is included.

it depends on the route, sometimes overnite, at most 4 days.
and of course, personnel.  I once had a package shipping to me from Lostwages, via houston.  The couriers name musta been Wong Way.

Title: Re: Verslavy Tensioner Assy
Post by tlitteer on 10/07/15 at 06:39:09

So apparently the person that owned the bike before me was proactive in the longevity of the bike. As I was making plans to upgrade the tensioner while tearing in to my bike for a custom RYCA build, I pulled the clutch/ timing cover off to find a Genuine Verslavy tensioner!! :o

Good to hear, a "V" stamped next to "Verslagen" in the pic below indicates it was made from a new adjuster usually.  Initials indicate made from used adjuster.

Still need a head plug?

You might want to order yourself a gasket, they're cheap.
The chances are that if you're careful, you'll be able to re-use the old gasket.
I bought a Verslavy, sent to the UK, best thing I ever did.
Great service, easy to fit, and peace of mind  ;)

I don't need one now as I am only at 7K miles, but wouldn't mind having one hanging around for whenever I get to that point. Considering I don't have a blank to send you, does it make sense for me to just buy one or wait until I have my bike apart in the future and just do a swap then?

If it's cost effective now, I'll participate. If it's extra $ unnecessarily, I may wait until I am really closer to needing one in the next year or so.

Getting ready to change the tensioner. Just sent the email. But I got to thinking. As the tensioner has a pawl to restrict the inward movement of the plunger would a lighter spring place the chain and guides under less pressure?  Would this result in reduced wear?

Assuming no engine vibration, yes but there is a lot of vibrations that would cause the motion anyway.
Once it's clicked out, thermal cycling causes the damage.

I'm interested in your verslavy mod cam tensioner. My 2015 is at 15k miles and has been making that cam chain noise for a while now (just figured out that's probably what it is!). Do you have any of the used/modded ones available?

I'll be checking it this weekend to confirm that this is the issue, but if I can install it at the same time that would be awesome!

I m not the expert here by any means. But I would think you could look the guides over for wear or signs of other damage and reuse if they are in decent shape. However, I'd look real close if the chain is already making noises.

As for whose turn I will not be needing the parts prior to laying the bike up for winter. I am truly not in a hurry.

depends on the condition of the guides, they can be worn but still usable.  But if there are a lot of cracks I would replace as it could shed the plastic and clog up the intake screen of the oil pump.

I tried email but it gives me a window that closes after a few seconds. I have the tensioner out of the bike I can send you, it is 20mm out. Send me an email when you have time. Its December so I'm not expecting a rush.

Just wanted to thank You! The refurbished tensioner is flawless. The security of mind was well spent, this little bike will see many many more miles because of it.

Verslagen, link to email you won't work since it wants to call up a mail client.  I would like to order the tensioner kit from you.  Could you email me with what it would cost?  I would want a complete kit so I can swap it out in the future.  Email is crazymactech@gmail.com

Just put an order in for the new parts required for the over-tension end of the plunger.
It'll be a month or 2 before I can iron out the assembly bugs, new tools, etc.

I will make an upgrade available to existing verslavies at $50 plus shipping.

Verslavies will continue to be available, $70, $120, $190, domestic shipping. (your parts, recycled,  or new)

The new over-tension adjuster will be  $120, $170, $240, domestic shipping. (your parts, recycled,  or new)

I'm thinking VerslavyOT for the new name (sorry JOG), maybe V-OT for short.
