Chain Tensioner for Triumph Twins 900/1200cc
- Triumph Street Twin, Street Cup, Street Scrambler (2016+)
- Triumph Bonneville T100/T120 (2016+)
Not suitable for Thruxton 1200/R, nor Bobber - these bikes have a different swingarm which will not take the tensioner.
Complete kit to fit a chain tensioner on the models above.
Triumph has equipped the Twins 900/1200cc from 2016+ with a quasi-perfect chain geometry: the swingarm is in alignment with the pinion-rear wheel axis, so that the up/down movements of the rear wheel have little effect on the tension of the chain.
However, if you raise the back of the bike, by mounting longer shocks or by fitting our Riser Block kit , this alignment is disturbed and the chain takes stress which reduces its life and can, in the long run, weaken the front sprocket bearing.
Our tensioner maintains the tension in the chain constant, regardless of the position of the rear wheel.
The tender does not require specific maintenance, its roller is lubricated by the chain.
Assembly without technical difficulty with basic tooling.
No need to disassemble the rear wheel or the chain.
12 month warranty.
