Moto Onfire Red Racing Manual Cam Timing Chain Tensioner Street Off Road Fit Honda CBR600 F3 95-98 CBR600 F4 F4I 99-06

It's on amazon I'm not sure how to put pictures on here buy its $35 on Amazon.

Don't really want to spend $75 on the ape tensioner looking for alternatives.

Any help appreciated

It's an APE knockoff. It's a pretty basic device to make and or copy. I don't see how you could go wrong if you want to go with a manual one.

Tensioner
I just wasn't sure if it was so cheaply made that it would hurt the bike or something

It's essentially a bolt with a locking nut that goes through a 3/8in piece of aluminum, it should be cheap.

Id be hesiatant it you were talking about super cheap chinese rearsets or something, but for how basic the part is, the APE is incredibly expensive.

I don't think you could go too wrong with a cheaper alternative for that part.
