APE manual cam chain tensioners are designed to replace the automatic and hydraulic tensioners on high performance engines. The automatic adjusters can back out when the throttle is closed suddenly at high rpm. This allows the cams to go momentarely out of time, and can result in bent valves and/or serious engine damage. Hydraulic tensioners have a tendency to put too much tension on the chain guide under high rpm/high oil pressure conditions, resulting in premature wear.

Both problems can be eliminated with the installation of the APE manual tensioner. No mater what the engine does, the cam chain tension will remain constant. An APE manual cam chain tensioner is a must for any kind of performance riding.

APE manual tensioners are CNC machined from billet alloy to exact tolerances for perfect fit. Colors will vary depending on Make/Model/Year.

  1. Great product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jul 2015

    This tensioner will eliminate startup cam chain noise as advertised, and for a fair price. Instructions were pretty straight forward. If I was required to say one thing negative, it would be the fact that the instructions recommend a new O-ring be used but it doesn't come with one.

  2. Worth Every Penny 5 Star Review

    My original cam chain tensioner on my zx14 was letting the chain make a bunch of noise on start up and on/off throttle. I put the manual in and the motor is 100% quieter and I trust it much more now

    They are easy to install & trouble free. Also, not putting excessive pressure on chain & guides makes them last longer.
