Hi there

I would recommend that you go with the manual one, the F2 oem has a history of failure.
Been using a manual one since getting my F2 haven't had a problem, just needs adjustment every so often

You only really need to adjust it when you hear the chain rattle, just to be safe I check and adjust (if necessary) with oil changes.
if I remember correctly there's a post on the manual tensioner install on the form, if I find it I'll link it
