How to install

1. First, loosen the chain up, putting slack in it and hold the tensioner in place.  Make sure the sprocket of the tensioner is sitting in the chain and is tracking straight with the chain and the front and rear sprockets on the motorcycle.

4.  Once the tensioner is in place, check it once more by spinning the back wheel and watching the chain and it's alignment with the front drive sprocket on the engine and the rear sprocket on the hub of the rear wheel.  Make sure the sprocket of the tensioner is running in a straight line with the chain and the other sprockets.

5.  Disassemble the spring from the tensioner and finish welding around both posts.  Put the spring back on the tensioner and tighten the chain using the adjusters to the point of a normally tightened chain.  (This will continue to preload the tensioner)
