It's probably the tool you use to "wind up" your tensioner before you install it. It backs the tensioning rod back into the body so it installs easier. I didn't know they started including that with new tensioners. I always used a small screwdriver.

Im pretty sure thats the pin that holds the tensioner closed so you can install it.

Thats it. Install the 2 main bolts, pull the key out, then put the sealing washer and nut on.

I got mine from HDLparts.com. About $65.00 shipped. Thats the CCT and the gasket. So far they have had the best prices of any other source, including bikebandit. FYI.

Thanks for the pricing heads up. How did your install go of the piece?
