What's your question? I've been reading about this automatic primary chain (adjuster) tensioner. It appears that it wants to ratchet too tight and cause a lot of problems. Anyone have any experience with this?
Details: Since it's ugly outside, I figured I'd take care of a few things with this bike so I can haul ass when the time comes! Respects

  1. I have not seen any problems with it becoming over tight. Occasionally it will not tighten enough, and you will hear some clucking in the primary. The factory recommends that while riding, you accelerate, back off, then hit the throttle again. it causes the primary chain to tighten, slack off and re-tighten, allowing the adjuster to move up a notch.
