Question about kawasaki KLX 300 Motorcycles
Depending of the bike , the tensioner should be a Teflon push plate or a metal plate which pushes on the chain to reduce the slack in the chain .Adjustment can be made manually from the back of the cylinders but all tensioner are different .Some do have a spring which could need replacement . sometimes if the timing chain is too old it make noise due to the tensioner out to the maximum tension and does not apply enough pressure on the chain and therefore noise and slight vibration .

all v twin engines are noisy, if you could totally silence the exhaust noise, you would be horrified how awful the motor sounds, it could probably do with the cam chain tensioner ADJUSTING. i wouldn't think it would need replacing. unfortunately the manual only recomends this being done by a qualified tech, i have a xvs 650 with same trouble. i would adjust myself if i could find out the correct tollerences.

You have a self adjusting cam chain tensioner. It is sold as an assembly. Take out the complete unit and replace it with a new one. The springs are not bad , the device that keeps the pressure on the tensioner is slipping causing a ticking sound.
