The Dirt Tricks KTM Timing Chain Tensioner resolves issues with a slack timing chain on the new 4-stroke motors. KTM's use a timing chain tensioning device intended to develop its force using the engine oil pressure hydraulically. The OEM components have serious flaws, which can leave the timing chain in a slack condition. This can have disastrous consequences. The Founder of Dirt Tricks developed the KTM Timing Chain Tensioner as a simple, effective, and fail-safe replacement for the OEM tensioner. It correctly captures the oil pressure and uses a positive mechanical ratcheting system to prevent it from collapsing. If you have a “ticking” noise at idle, you need this part.
