To remove your cam chain tensioner...

1. Put the bike on center stand
2. Remove the spark plugs (this will make it easier to turn the engine over by hand).
3. Remove the screws securing the ignition cover (In front of your left foot).
4. Slowly rotate the crankshaft clockwise several times with a wrench on the nut at the left-hand end of the crankshaft.
Stop the rotation when the "C" mark on the timing plate aligns with the stationary pointer (if you go past this point carry on round until it comes up again, do not wind it back anti-clockwise)
5. Unbolt tensioner

Be not stingy in what costs nothing as courtesy, counsel and countenance.
