chain guide tensioner

Good morning, would anyone have some spare tensoners? Front head. The right one behind the stator pully looks like some of the black by the knuckle is pealed off the rest of them looks fine. Not sure if that would effect anything.

Not sure why you want a new one. Is it making a clacking noise? Is it leaking oil? Can you post a pic? If itsjust some peeling paint why not just pull it, sand it and paint it?

Edit: I'm dumb, guide not tensioner.

Host the pic on photobucket, imgur, etc and use the "Insert Image" function on the forum to insert the image using the direct link.

The guide your looking at has a triangular plate,secured to the case by two 10 mm bolts, the other end of which, has a spring on a pin mounted in the chain guide housing on the barrel. The one I found in spares has the same wear factor,approaching bare metal. Not sure if these are critical.

As it looks the chain does not ride on it that part just moves the chain kinda passes that part as it sits on the lower sprocket behind the stator
