Chain Tensioner - back in my younger days I had 1 fitted to my motorcross bike.
With MX bikes there's a lot of rear suspension travel happening. The tensioner reduced constant chain tensioning adjustments and IMO reduced sprocket wear. Reduces chain backlash etc. Weighup if the cost is effective enough to install one.
Would I fit one to my Bonney - tempted but my bike use doesn't warrant it. As the new Bonneys don't leak oil or require maintenance like the old generation, there's more leisure time to tweak chain tension, polish & shine etc
