Camshaft Chain Tensioner

Camshaft Chain Tensioner Removal

This is a non-return type cam chain tensioner. The push rod
does not return to its original position once it moves out to
take up cam chain slack. Observe all the rules listed below:
When removing the tensioner, do not take out the mounting
bolts only halfway. Retightening the mounting bolts from this
position could damage the tensioner and the camshaft chain.
Once the bolts are loosened, the tensioner must be removed
and reset as described in "Chain Tensioner Installation". Do
not turn over the crankshaft while the tensioner is removed.
This could upset the cam chain timing, and damage the valves.
Remove the left side cover.
Loosen the cap bolt [A] before tensioner removal for later disassembly
convenience.
Unscrew the mounting bolts [B] and remove the camshaft chain
tensioner [C].
Do not turn over the crankshaft while the tensioner is removed.
This could upset the cam chain timing, and damaging the
valves.
Remove the fuel tank mounting bolt and band, and move the fuel tank
[A] backward.
Remove the camshaft chain tensioner [B] while the push rod [E]
clockwise [D] and compressing [F] it with a suitable screwdriver [C].
