SPADA timing chain tensioner

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by upg, Oct 4, 2010.

  1. Hi guys

    it seems the front tensioner on my spada is malfunctioning as it has developed quite a loud noise. Are these units servicable or is it possible to convert them from hydraulic to manual?

    i have looked at what is involved in the service manual (section 9)

    i got a price for a new tensioner from honda. needless to say i wont be going down that route.
