Based on what you have written it does not take a mechanical engineer to determine that the replacement chain tensioner is the way to go. I think I will get one. Nice writeup and graphics. It is folks like you that make this forum the best.

I visited the Skunk2 website and was unable to locate the tensioner you are referring to. Perhaps you could could point me in the right direction. Thanks again.

I'm not an expert. Therefore can not dispute their claim...
However, I think the photographic "evidence" is a bit misleading. In the top photo is seems fairly obvious that there is NO tension on the chain at all - it is not even ON the right side gear....
I believe in the static state, either tensioner would make the chain taught.

Again, I am not disputing the claim of the original post... Just pointing out my observation of the photos.....
Good points based on your observations.
