"How to prep your tensioner to reinstall"

Here is how to replace the Cam Chain Tensioner For Virago 700, 750, 920, 1000, and 1100cc engines. Thanks to Doctor Virago on You Tube. Thanks Bradley:

Doctor Virago's small metal piece is to hold the Adjustment screw so that the tensioner could be screwed back into the cylinder head. Once installed the piece of metal is removed and the plunger slides in to take up the Cam Chain Slack.
