I normally carry the pre-98's, but the 98+ are in very low demand so I haven't started stocking them. If I had one for you, it'd be on your doorstep in about 2 days...

If you can wait a few days I'll know if I have one for sale.
Bought a bunch of stuff to put on my 01 Kat, but wiped out a few days ago.
Been riding 30 years and my first street crash. If the insurance totals out the bike I may have some new parts to sell.

are you sure you need a tensioner? (is it missing or is it 'sticking'?)
remove end plug, remove tensioner and see how much further movement you have.
If chain is Ok you may find tensioner works fine after a re-set
I'm not a complete idiot, but I'm working on it.
