    I had the BMW dealer replace my spring tensioner with the hydrolic one. Clatter disappeared in favor of different noises. I ordered the guide rail in case it needed to be replaced as well, but mine were OK (they have to come from Germany, so rather than let my bike be held hostage for an extra month, it was worth the exercise of staging all the parts first). Bike feels and rides like new again (but that could also be the new tires. There still isn't another scooter in the marketplace that is as pretty.

    Just finished installing the new HYDRAULIC CHAIN TENSIONER, and so far so good.

    Same here (2016 GT). It was under warranty so no charge.
