What Tom said.
Did my '09 "doo" at 1244 miles and the spring although not loose, did
not have tension either. It was just there. There wasn't enough tension for one
adjustment or if so just barely. Maybe it's just the peace of mind with the doo done,
but all that clatter down south doesn't bother me one bit especially after riding with
other KLR's now. They whirr too. LOL
I keep clean oil in it, ride hard, and never give the engine another thought.
These things are very reliable.
