    Question '02 F650GS Dakar chain tensioner ?

    Does anyone know if there's an aftermarket spring-loaded chain tensioner that will fit my GS ? I used to have one on a Yamaha trail bike years ago and it worked really well.
    Cheers,
    Ian.

    I mean well by this: why do you need one on this MC? As in, "adjust the chain and ride" works for me.

    I was just curious as to the availability- the one on my other bike helped smooth out the variation in tension quite well. My DAKAR has a centre stand so chain adjustment is easy
