Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.
I checked and both tensioners are in stock, $41 and $30. Item #5 and #8

    What you are talking about is small bucks and it is always a good idea to replace a spring. By the way, I looked for a free PDF online repair manual but had no success. At least now you have a parts source.

Your rear wheel is mounted on an offset cam. Part #6 Loosen the bolt on the back of the wheel/cam/bearing holder at the back of the swing arm.Part #16 Use tools Part # 15 and 7or 6 (whichever fits the circumference of the cam) together to rotate the bearing cam until the chain has approximately 1 and 1/2 inches of slack from the top to the bottom of its movement in the middle of the chain slack. Then retighten the bolt on the back of the swing arm. Happy Riding

I need to get to the timing chain for my 1986 threewheeler but i dont know how

Make sure the motor is on TDC.

You'll have to pull the rockers off and then you'll see the timing chain. the chain goes around the gear that is bolted to the camshaft(s) and then down around the crankshaft gear.
There will be a timing chain tensioner on the side of the motor. Lossen that to take the tension off the timing chain.
Now you can remove the chain from the cam gear, you may have to remove the cam gear bolts and the cam gear to get the chain off.
I reccomend that you mark the position of the cam gear so you put it back correctly.

If you just want to inspect the chain, just pull of the rockers and spin the motor to observe the whole chain and if it has any stiff spots or seems stretched.

I have recently purchased a 1984 model 750cc honda magna, how will adjust the cam tensioner

The cam chain tensioner is self adjusting. If the tensioner is worn out, the tensioners are best replaced by a motorcycle shop unless you have the skill, tools, and a manual.

Cam chain tensioners

i replaced mine on my cbr f1 with a salvaged one... a couple of bolts and it took me 20 minutes with fairings off. it was a good thing i replaced it, because the old one was worn down really bad, and its was wobbly. I heard that if you use an aftermarket and you don't know what your doing you could cause damage. can i get some feedback, thanks

Loud tapping coming from the front of my vtr 1000

Some VTR1000's had a problem with the cam chain tensioner on the front cylinder. If this is left the chain can become so loose it skips a few teeth on the cam sprocket and bends the valves. If you can locate the tensioner, remove the centre screw with sealing washer from it, insert a small flat blade screwdriver in and run the engine. you will feel the screwdriver shake about if the tensioner has gone.
