    I have a 2003 Road King Anniversary,103, I believe. Is there a hydraulic cam tensioner for this motor?

    I bought a used 2010 FLHTK that came with a PSP service Gold Plan that is almost up. How often should I inspect the cam chain tensioners? As far as I know that hasn’t happened and there is 40K miles on the bike. Do you have a video that shows the inspection precedure?

      Hello Richard,

      Here’s what our expert has to say:

      Your 2010 m/c has hydraulic cam chain tensioners. There is really no need to inspect until the motor is being rebuilt. Your 2010 should be fine until somewhere between 60k & 80k. Depending on how m/c has been maintained. You should be able to go well past 60k before rebuild is needed on your 2010.
      Unless gaskets are beginning to leak, and making you nuts.
