I've found that choice of oil effects the noise. The noise was present when I used Mobil 1 but has all but gone away with Rotella T.

I just want to thank markjenn for a good write up. I performed this retrofit last weekend. Everything went smoothly. I started the bike and it is quieter. My ride into to work this morning should give me some more feedback. BTW, a large bent (fish hook style) paper clip lifts the old plunger enough to grab with needle nose pliers and remove.

Guys,

The photo of the old and new tensioner on the ADVrider site shows a fourth part new part they call the "smaller floating piston." Mark, why don't you show it in your photo or list it with on your parts list? Did you other guys install this part? Anyone have the part number of this smaller piston?



Thanks,
Jeff

After a bit more searching, I learned that the ADVrider parts were superceded by the parts shown in this post.

Same here. Can`t figure this one out. It is not nearly as loud as the left side though. It does not do it on every start up. I`m not too worried but I wish it were quite.

rt. tensioner

Pull the right side and clean it. Check the spring lenght with the left side. Maybe you can swap them and get rid of the problem that way.

FOR SALE: Original piston, spring, and barrel for left side cam chain tensioner out of 2000 model R1100S. Items are in great shape with only negligible wear detectable. These parts are required for that authentic early R1100S ownership experience of getting knots in your stomach hoping your bike won’t embarrass you by rattling like a can of spray paint at start up (it will). All R1100S owners deserve the opportunity to sheepishly explain this exasperating trait of the boxer engine to all of their non-BMW riding buddies. These items will also be necessary for that concourse restoration in 15-20 years because those anal BMWophile judges will surely detect the 15 mm rather than correct 17 mm bolt pattern on the barrel. Don't lose critical show points. Make an offer today.

-Jeff

A&S never mentioned it to me when I bought the upgraded parts.....

I just did this mod on my R1150R. Nothing but happiness. Easy too.

I did not have the throttle body O-ring on hand, and I wish I did when I got into it. The stock one was enlarged (just like Mark warned) and it was difficult to fit back into place properly.

A throttle body sync with a twin max et al afterwards should show an out of balance condition, which is probably air leak, if you get it the o-ring back on wrong.

I said "read" not just "look at the pictures". READ my original post or the post after the picture you're worried about.

Okay, one last time, now pay attention.

The picture below is OBSOLETE. As discussed here and in the Advrider threads, the "Upgrade Model" parts below are part of a $250 discontinued "kit" from BMW that is no longer available.



This picture is CURRENT AND CORRECT. The tensioner parts at the bottom are what need today. As a bonus, they're much cheaper ($55 or so).



11317688629 - cylinder
11317656922 - piston
07119963308 - seal ring 18x22

AFAIK, my original post here and my follow-up posts on Advrider are current and correct. That was the whole idea of this thread - to cut through the confusion and say exactly what you need to do on the S with the latest parts. Obviously, I failed miserably.
