    looking for chain tension spanner

    Gday fellas
    I'm looking for a drive chain tension spanner for me 400bros. When I bought the bike it didn't come with a tool kit. Searching wreckers and importers around here I've found it's rare as rocking horse shit! Nobody has anything. Ebay's empty as well. Can someone point me in the right direction in finding one? If someone has a spare can I buy one off you? Ta for that ay. -Alex

        I made mine for free using a hammer and a screwdriver.

        '99 Suzuki GZ250 - the first

        '87 Suzuki GSXR1100/1207cc - traded to get my Hawk back

          Yah the previous owner of my old bike had done that too, chewed the gear all to hell and I almost had to replace it.

          $15 bucks, come on get the right tool. It makes adjustment MUCH easier, It "locks" to the swingarm and you just rotate the wheel the right direction for tighness or loseness.

            That does actually sound pretty sweet. I'd just been skeered off because I'd seen a couple other Hawk-specific tools that were for sale for like $100 and figured "not again".

                    FYI: The one for VFR's for some reason is a little different, and fits the Hawk a little better. The nuts from the sprocket bolts get in the way in some positions.

                      Thanks guys I didn't think of chasing from Duc or trump's. I thought the same thing if I went to honda to find a part it was going to cost me a stack of cash. I had two in a previous vfr4 now i wish i kept one of them...

                      ps-What's a banghead?
