Damn, wish I read that page more carefully, paid $36[US] for an OEM gasket in case I needed it (which I didn't)
Fitted the APE tensioner today as part of my 10,000km service no bad noise from my bike before doing this but I could push the guide in another 2~3mm by hand with the stock tensioner still fitted.
Also found a 1/2" drive socket (10~14mm) wrapped in a lint free cloth makes a handy wedge between the case and guide to keep tension in the chain while doing the swap.
Anyway bike's back together and there is a slight reduction in mechanical noise via the screwdriver stethoscope test.

Hord great service, the shipping advice email arrived 9 hours after order confirmation and USPS delivered in 5 days to Australia, thanks.

Thanks for all the support everybody, much appreciated. These tensioners are selling amazingly well. I'll try to fix up the web page to make the gaskets easier to find.

So is this something needed for all daytona 675's regardless of year? Or is the issue of the "clanking" noise just on certain model years?

its a problem with all 06-08 675's at one point or another in its lifetime, the 09 on the other hand has the manual tensioner as stock
