The Armored Attitude Adjuster

If you have a 2006 or later Dyna, or a 2007 and later Softail/ Touring bike you know the issues that come along with the stock auto chain tensioner. At the first moment that the chain has any slack in it, the auto tensioner ratchets the shoe up another notch. Now one notch is not going to be an issue, but the tightening never stops and this causes several problems. The BAKER manual chain adjuster prevents damage to your motorcycle's left-side motor case bearings, inner primary bearings, clutch hub bearings, and transmission output gear bearings.

Primary Chain Adjustment

Proper primary chain adjustment is a must! If the chain is too loose, you will notice unwanted noise, like a ticking sound. You can also experience excessive wear on the shoe and damage to your inner primary. If the chain is too tight, it will cause wear on the adjuster shoe, chain, and bearings. If the chain is too tight for too long, the chain will pull on the mainshaft and the crankshaft and can cause damage to both the transmission and the engine.
