Cam Chain Tensioner

Anyone try the manual cam chain tensioner on their bike to get rid of the annoying clacking noise? I read MT-07s are known for it and my new R7 after 300miles started doing it. Thanks for any replies

It'll go away, happened on my 2020 Mt03 and it went away after about 600 - 700 miles seemed likes everything gets broken in and sets in place. Until then you'll hear some weird noises but should be normal.
Most of my bikes have been and are air-cooled so I'm used to all the noise. My XV950 makes a lotta racket but the motor is known to be dead reliable. The problem is mostly caused by a quiet exhaust.
