SO i WENT K3s...
adjustement is not problem.
they are notorious for dripping oil on rear due to have tread all the way and just O-ring around tread to seal.
I also found good number of them wearing out at contact point.it is metal on metal where they push against chain guide.I don't use them any more for this reasons.

Does your mechanic have no wrists or elbows?

for everyone thinkin of replacing the curvy's CCTs w/ K3 ones-->


you WILL need new gascets AND the tiny screws that come on top of the tensioner (ITS A DIFFERENT Part No... so if you order CCts you'll only get the main body)

I have some gaskets kicking about just in case, but I have never needed to replace one, they tend to stay stuck to one side or the other.
