I still for the life of me can't figure out after all these years why Harley hasn't gone to a spring loaded or oil pressure based tension gear to keep the slack out. It would never need to be replaced and would last the life of the motor. IMHO

We had a bike come in our service department with almost 50k miles, the shoe was that bad it broke apart and a piece of shoe got in the oil pump and clogged it up.

Chains? No damn stinkin chains!!!
Have to agree with you Max, the spring-loaded design is not the most efficient, and there is more than enough oil pressure in the TC.
