Sorry to be testy, but really, it's not that hard - you just have to read this thread - I said the old parts are obsolete in my original post, and it was repeated again just after the obsolete picture was posted.

I didn't THINK I missed anything when I bought the latest parts.
Actually, I was more worried that I sold RapidDog an incomplete set of parts since I bought two.
It's one thing to screw up one's own scoot, but I'd feel really bad if I not only gave someone bad information, but then sold them something incomplete. I'm sure you understand.

Mine ran 130 MPH on Saturday after installing "your" recommended parts and starts as quiet as a church mouse. I think we're good.

What year did this change take place.
Will this be for my 04-Rt also?

I'd like to know the cut in date for this change as well; I see reference to the 1200 as being the current donor for this part. Is it safe to assume that my early 04 R11S has the old part?

AFAIK, the cut is the R1200 motors. Any oilhead has the old tensioner.

Bringing this back from the dead!
Are these part numbers the same for both sides? Are there even tensioners on both sides? I know, "noob", sorry.

Yes, there are tensioners on both sides. The left side, however, is a little more involved... but manageable.
They have updated the part numbers again and I would check with a BMW Dealer or go and find the micro-fishe online at Max BMW. It basically is a stronger spring and it did well for my bikes... I change them every 3 or 4 years. Just because.

Bout 1 1/2 hour2, a few adult beverages and few bleeding knuckles... I can leave out the beverages and do it in less than an hour now.

For all I know, they are identical... wouldn't surprise me. But it is a good bet to start with the bike you own...

yet still another revival of an old thread. I guess as long as these bikes are being bought & sold and surviving there will be people still needing to learn about them. I bought my S from a member here four years ago, but had not heard of this cam chain tensioner issue until recently on a Facebook page for 1100 and 1150RTs. I've read all of the comments here as well as several other places and am about to order the replacement parts. However: the curious side of me needs to know more about it just to satisfy the curiosity. What I am seeing/reading is that the main issue is with the tension and that makes sense. The thing that has me wanting to know more is there have been a couple of mentions about oiling or hydraulics involved that are different in the old and new tensioners. Does anyone have details on that and why it is such a concern?


thanks

OH! BTW, markjenn; great write up. thank you.

Based on its construction the old tensioner maintains tension thru oil pressure. At start-up, oil has drained out of the tensioner body, so it provides no tension against the chain until that oil gets back in there; a few critical seconds. During those few seconds, the chain is free to slap against the plastic guide rail, potentially breaking it (which has happened to some unfortunate souls. It can grenade teh engine.. so you'd really rather not go thru that experience. The new tensioner won't allow oil to drain out... problem averted.

At least for awhile, my left side tensioner has recently begun clacking for a short period after startup. Seems they aren't a foolproof item. I changed it in '15. Guess I need to at least pull it out & see if damage is evident & replace it again.
