Cam Chain Tensioner GSX250F?

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by DamusB, Apr 15, 2015.

  1. Hi guys,

    So I think im going to replace the cam chain tensioner on my suzuki across.
    Is this a hard job? Any advice?
    Also how much will I be looking for the part/where to get it?????

    Thanks heaps!

  2. Why do you think it needs replacement?
  3. Should be fairly easy to replace. undo a couple of bolts to remove the old one, then fit a new one and wind on the tension or it is a auto one, just release it to apply pressure to the cam chain.
    Usually just need the new CC tensioner and a new gasket.
    I am not sure what year model you have, but a cct is $45 on fleabay.

    Not sure if the exhaust will be in the way, but you may need to remove it???

    use google and youtube to help yourself answer any questions you have.
  4. Reason is I'm getting intermittent cam chain noise. I think the tensioner is sticking.
  5. Also that ebay one looks in good nick and 40$ is a totally fair price for an OEM part, thanks heaps, good find.
