Hayden M6 BT07

I might go into the Primary area this fall and make some changes. Has anyone ever used this tensioner? If so give me some feed back.

I just got one, haven't even installed it yet but plan to do it before SWIII. I've read many good reviews on another forum, nothing negative, I'll be doing my comments in a few weeks.

I look foward to your comments. Perhaps our paths will cross at SWIII.

I have one installed. It works great. Keeps the right tension on the primary chain and It compresses when you rev the engine.

Yep, works as advertised, this is my 3rd bike with the Hayden tensioner.

The new style OEM ratcheting tensioners are better than the older ones, but have a nasty tendency to over-tighten.

Installed a Hayden on my 97 Road-king. Traded bike in at 50k and never a problem. Put the Harley ratchet type on my 05 glide at about 10k and at 45k the bearing between clutch and tranny started to go. The Harley one kept the primary chain too tight. On my 011 I pulled the stock tentioner off at 1k and put on a Hayden.If your bike has 30k plus I hope it"s not too late for the bearing. The stock tentioners are way too tight. At $100.00 the Hayden is well worth the money and piece of mind.

You'll be happy with it. Give it a few miles to set in. Some folks say that there is a whirring sound for the first few hundred miles, but I haven't noticed it.
