Is the timing chain tensioner on the WR 450 automatic all the time or do you need to loosen the nut on the out side for it to work then tighten nut? I know this is probable a stupid question but looked in manual and seamed a little vague to me. HELP :)

It is a fixed postion tensioner with a heavy spring. No need to ever adjust. :)
