New and Old Tentioner
« on: November 09, 2009, 08:48:25 PM »


Some of the 2008 and newer bikes have a new tensioner, they will not fit in
early bikes as the hole in the cylinder is too small to fit.

As for why the new tensioner, so far no reason, the one above failed at 12,000
miles I am told, as for the reason,spring was weak.

Please send me any information you have on your bike and the cam chain
tensioner,Model GT/GV and size 125/250/650, year and mileage, new or old and good or bad.

Thanks MOTR

Can I just clarify

NEW tensioner is on the LEFT with the yellow label

OLD tensioner is on the RIGHT

I have the one on the RIGHT - 22500miles - GT650R - no problems

Just to make things more confusing, The GV650 2006 has a 3rd type and the GV650 2008 has a 4 type.

I am trying to find out what the "correct part number" for the different Tentioners.

(Images soon)

Hey guys
Anybody can provide any info on the "Third generation tensioner" I stumbled upon? This how they call it on few ukrainian forums dedicated to Hyosung motorcycles - they're happened to be very popular there.



Here's the link from Ukrainian website
http://motoepc.com.ua/index.php?productID=119

Basically, it translates like this:

Camchain tensioner for HYOSUNG RX125SM/GT250/GT250R/GV250
Part-number: 12830H88600
In stock in Kiev: yes

Price: $ 20.00
Price: $ 15.00
Rebate: $ 5.00 (25%)

Camchain tensioner third generation for HYOSUNG RX125SM/GT250/GT250R/GV250. Original part.

* Promotion ends Jan 31 2010

google doesn't return much info on this part number - in fact, only one UK website lists it as GT125/GT125R/GV125C part. Yet, on the one GT250R forum multiple ppl claim they have installed them.
