Ok guys, I just replaced the tensioners on my GL1000. I just wanted a couple second opinions before I cover everything back up. I used grade 8, 3/8" hardware torqued to 30lbs. I did my best to center the bolt in the larger opening on the tensioner plate before I torqued them. I assume that once they are tightened it won't really matter if the idler is perfectly centered because the spring will compensate. The only thing that concerns me is the washer sunk into the opening on the plate.

I ground down the spacer plate that goes behind the tensioner to allow it to move as usual with the added material from the hex head. Everything seems to work as intended.

Any reasons I should alter what I've done here?

Trying this on mine shortly. ACDelco 42015's are about $14 shipping on Amazon. Doing the 3/8" Carriage bolt method.

Replaced the timing belts this spring, but I get a whine at idle once hot on my '86 Medicaide.

A whine would indicate that the belt is to tigth , check the tension .

Sorry, wrong word. "chirp" or "high pitched squeal" would be more accurate. Only when hot at idle.

I took the bike apart twice to check belt tension. Both times, it was right.
