chain tensioner cup

Postby Martin27 » 08 Dec 2016, 10:53

Hello,
does someone know if it's possible to get rear chain tensioner cups? (not sure if it's correct name, so I uploaded the picture with marked part) Or if someone has extra couple, I would be happy to buy one,
Thanks, Martin

Hi Martin, Try a BSA Bantam parts supplier such as "Bantam John" (John Phelan). The first Bantam, the 125cc D1 Model had similar items, and over many years I have used them on my rebuilds when the original ones have been missing or damaged.

Hi Brian,

I couldn't find Bantam John contact, but this helped me a lot, I was able to find easily this part at ebay now. Thanks a lot,

Martin

If you drill a small diameter hole in the end of the brake rod, and put a split-pin in it, you will never loose the cup if the nut vibrates off.

I don't think drilling a hole in the brake rod will help, Brian, but one in the threaded portion of the chain tensioner might help!

Yes Dave, another brain fart moment I'm afraid, but what I suggested can stop the brake adjuster cone-nut from disappearing !
