Well I did the dreaded cam chain tensioner on my 08 FJR today. 55650 miles on unit. I have looked at it a few times and saw no “Green Dot”, so I bought one a few weeks ago. Thanks to all those who have gone before me for there posts of problems and solutions. Found a little short 8mm in the bottom of tool box that worked perfect (35 year old wrench). Using a Magnet and slotted the 10 mm bolt that plugs adjuster to was very helpful! Zip tied cam chain to keep from loosing a tooth or two. My wife tells me need clean jeans but I’m having a beer and listing to Waylon. This thread is very helpful again. The new adjuster was a little different length, which was mentioned in a thread. I turned over with a 14 mm socket a few time and everything felt smooth. Put back together and fired it up of 10 minutes. I swear it sounds quieter! Again thanks all you “Yoda’s” going before me and writing of your problems and solutions.
