So I purchased a used LTZ 400 (2003) from a buddy. The engine was making some noise that was either the valves or the cam chain. I opened it up and the intake valves were too tight, so after I installed the new shims, I inspected the chain and it appeared serviceable. The stock automatic tensioner was at the limit of its extension.
I started the bike, and it was quieter than when I first got it, but I could still hear the cam chain noise. I purchased this product, and after a few days, it arrived.
It is a nicely manufactured piece and it comes with instructions. After removing the stock tensioner and driving out the roll pin, I had some trouble re-installing the ALBA racing part onto the stock tensioner. Seems the holes would not align and were slightly off.
I can't say if this is due to manufacturing tolerance differences in the Suzuki part, or the tensioner adapter. Easy fix. Took off about .001-.002 inch with a bench grinder and the part fit easily.
It took all of 15 minutes to do this job, and after starting it up, it sounds like a new machine. No cam chain slap. Real tight. I will take it out tomorrow to CA City and put it through its paces, but as for how the product seems to work, It was well worth the money. I didn't give it 5 stars only cause of the grinding issue, but if it does as it seems, this is an excellent and well made product.
