Ebay tensioners (mc spare parts)

I'm in the need for new chain tensioners. I've seen many threads about the Cyco brand shoes and how they wear better than the stock HD parts. However there's a new kid in town now it seems mcspareparts.com. They claim to be all Made in the USA parts. I like the sound of that but I've not seen anyone that has talked about experience with them. Actual part quality, etc.

1999 Road Glide, 95" Andrews 37, Power Commander 3, D&D Fatcat 2-1, Big Sucker

I don't know if it is necessary. After the first set of tensioner shoes are changed, the second set will last forever due to the sharp edges on the chain being worn smooth.

I naturally learn about timing chain tensioner replacement AFTER I replace it with another Harley part. DOW!

2011 Road Glide Ultra, Andrews 57H, VeeTwin Performance street port, Big Sucker Intake, Rhinehart 2/1 w 4" muffler, Power commander V, Paugcho 17" bars, Stock seat recovered with leather, Michelin Comander II 140/80B front, Yokohama Envigor 205/60/16 rear. It's better on the dark side.
