I've been looking through the SSM and I haven't found any dimensions or specs that relate to the tensioner or the guides.  Are there any on your site?

The ONLY thing in the SSM is the chain stretch measurement.

Quick question...off topic but

Does anyone know why the site filters would block my photo with a file name like this?

"CamChainTensioner_1514"

My photo wouldn't appear until I changed that name.  Even better still, it doesn't block it when just typed like that Tongue

A: File name could be too long?
B: Doesnt like the underscore for an image file?
C: It thinks its a silly name?

Why is the angle so different between the tensioner in the first picture and the second.. it seems to me that if you straighten out the top tensioner they would be almost alike.  
And another question.. and please don't call me stupid if it is totally unrealistic...  but..  the back plate. if I understand it right, it pushes onto the chain to "tension it"..  why not do something to that instead of rigging up a hole new system..  just shorten the plate.. drill a new hole  and wolla the tensioner is back in its holster.. and  you are good to go some 1000 miles...

I think that if you follow the link in the first post by Kropatchek, you'll see the reason for the difference.  My top picture comes from that site.

A second hole is an idea, but maybe after I post a pic of the chain guide you'll see one small problem with that idea.  There is an offset in the plate, plus the back of the plate has a welded nut.  Might not be able to move the hole very much.

The German site has a fix option posted too...

I use the file name with the underscore & image number from the camera because that way I can find my original proof if I need it.

I just tried another one with the name CamChainTensioner_1565  and it won't post that either.  I changed the name to CamChainAsy_1565 and here it is.  What's up with the word Tensioner or a combination of those letters?  Must be a pregnant dog thing.

Might have to experiment with the number of characters. My only guess is the first one is 22 characters, the second is 16.

Okay...here's the thing.  The SSM says to measure 20 links in the cam chain to check for stretch...and as you can see, I don't have the headcover off and the cam chain removed, yet.  All that I have is the tensioner and guide removed...

Also, the wear on the chain guide looks really minor.  No cracks, and just a couple of really shallow grooves near the bottom end.  They are less than 1 MM.

What could be worn out at this point?  I bet there is about 8-10 MM of travel remaining on the tensioner.

Greg, If you can remember the other threads about the camchain
http://suzukisavage.com/cgi-bin/YaBB.pl?board=RubberSideDown;action=display;n...
And
http://suzukisavage.com/cgi-bin/YaBB.pl?board=RubberSideDown;action=display;n...

It's still not clear where the wear is.
If you like wrenching ( and have the time) you can do 3 things:
1) replace the chain with a new one and measure the
   extension of the tensioner.
2) replace the guide only and measure the tensioner
   extension
3) replace both the chain and the guide and measure
   the tensioner extension

Measurement: the cilindrical portion of the tensioner sticking outof the housing.

Let us know pls

I'm sure that I have read those other threads, but that's the thing.  I haven't seen measurements except for the chain.

As you can tell from the photos I'm posting, I'm in the engine right now just because of my curiosity.  I've already gotten the rear guide out, and the cam chain and other guide comes out today.  I'll measure all of them.

Honestly though, I don't want to buy new ones just to measure them...Tongue

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to just measure the guides at the bottom and know what was worn without removing the headcover and cam?
