The PO of my 1100 had just changed the timing belts on my bike at 30k miles. That was about a month ago. He had several bikes in his garage and was obviously a knowledgeable person with regards to working on his bikes.How likely was he to have checked the condition or replaced the tensioners when he did the belts? I lost his number so I can't call.

At 30,000 mikes, it is unlikely he replaced the tensioners. Many people do check theirs when new belts are put on, many don't. If it come to replacing these, I would do them around 100,000 miles. Around that, the Wing is finally srarted to get "Broken In". Someone plese correct me if I am wrong.
Good Luck,

They are probably OK..but in setting the tension on them especial the 1/3 side can be a challenge if you don't know the secret and most don't..so they just add tension manually which not good..

PS the tensioners start squeaking before they go out

Your tensioners will "complain" when they are tired.. and they should be good until the next belt change and maybe beyond... assuming your 30k miles is correct..
