Has anyone ever disassembled the tensioners to replace the bearing itself with a Timken or repack? I did a quick forum search and didn't find anything related. They are available through Partzilla at $112.84 each. Ouch.
I don't want to replace the belts on unserviced tensioners.

Thanks! I ordered two at $19.69 ea, there are two left if anyone else is interested
I did this as I mentioned on my 1200. Here's a link to the maintenance I did, page scroll down: https://goldwingdocs.com/forum/viewtopic ... &start=100
And thank you sir for that link. I need to find the 10mm countersunk bolt somewhere. Edit: will reuse the one on the tensioner should be ok.
