Hello chaps,I have a problem with a 955 tiger.I think I have a faulty camchain tensioner.I have developed a rattle that sounds camchain related.I wish to know if the tensioner is automatic,and if anyone has had any trouble with theirs.I have asked on the tiger section and thought I would ask you 955 sprinters.

cheers chaps

They are only automatic to a point..... they either use spring tension or use oil pressure. I would check Bikebandit for a picture and see if you can tell from there.

The tensioner is spring-loaded, acting on a 'blade' that presses on one side of the chain.

Removal is described on page 3.19 of the Triumph Manual.
