    Cam chain tensioner plus other items

    My newly acquired Tornado 900 has completed 7273 miles. I'm changing oil and filter. Also checked cam chain tensioner unit. Free spring length is 73.5mm and plunger depth is 48.3mm. Is it unusual for 900 to have the longer 75mm spring? Also Bennetts confirmed to me today that the Z25 shaft and gear were updated. Replacing clutch housing gasket as it had a small oil leak. Any recommendation from experienced Benelli riders would be greatly appreciated. 😂

    Good choice and welcome. Hopefully its a red one or are you one with the loss of taste symptom of Covid who thinks green is good? Put a picture up and give your location, there might be some local members to you .

    Yes thats great. I'm over in Ireland from 28th on holiday but we're only going as far as Galway travelling on coast from Larne. Looking forward to it, not on Benelli we'll be on ZZR1400

    Thanks for your welcome to the forum. Would love to visit Yorkshire on my bike someday. You produced some great roadracers. Enjoy Ireland. Are you doing part of the Wild Atlantic Way, between Donegal and Galway?

    Bring the bike over Yorkshire is good but then i would say that. Yes doing Antrim coast road & Wild Atlantic as far as Galway is the plan. Staying Letterkenny, Killybegs, Clifden

    Someone must have changed it. Even the RS' had the shorter spring. It's only with the advent of the 1130's that the longer spring became available. (AFAiK)
    Replacing clutch housing gasket as it had a small oil leak. Any recommendation from experienced Benelli riders would be greatly appreciated.
    I've re-used mine dozens of times, ensuring a seal with a non-hardening resin (Permatex #3). The gasket is metal based, so it is quite resilient.
    I use the same stuff on the cam cover seals. It's only after 17 years that those seals are starting to harden up making the resin's job a bit tougher.
    If you replace the gasket, I think the only ones you can get now are for the later tre's which don't have the two location holes for the shoulder bolts. You'd have to check that.
