I fitted a manual tensioner to mine a few weeks after I bought the bike.

Does the chain still have that clatter sound and where did you bought it ?

I changed it as a precaution not because of a noise. CPR sold and fitted it. I believe they are locally made in Somerset West.

Do you have contact details for them?

Not yet. I bought a commute bike in the mean time and had to gather some cash before taking it in. I'll probably go drop it off this weekend

Bike was dropped off but they have a bit of a backlog. Should have feedback in a week or two

OK so just got feedback. A bearing collapsed on one of the rockers. I don't have the full quote yet but they need to replace a  cam and bearing plus a couple of other things. The quote is actually surprisingly reasonable considering I asked them to also include a service with all fluids. Bike should be sorted in 3 weeks as they need a couple of parts

Sorted. Exhaust rocker and cam replaced, service plus shims and new brake fluid for a very reasonable amount. Bike runs super quiet again
