I think you will find an overwhelming majority of people in this forum will recommend going to gear cams. The additional expense of the gears (about 300 bucks or so, give or take) will more than off set any expense down the road of changing out tensioners and chains. How many miles do you ride each year? Do you plan on keeping this bike for a long time? If you are a 3000 or 4000 mile a year rider, save your dough and keep it stock. If you pile on the miles, go with gears. If your dealer hasn't seen any problems with tensioners, then they haven't worked on any bikes with miles in the 20K + range. I have gears in mine. I have over 20K on the gears, and there are no problems. The way I ride, I would have been into my cam chest for repairs if I didn't have gear drive. Just my -2$en#e- You'll get other opinions too.
