I'm pretty sure the QA Engineers with my company are mostly Chem or Mechanical Engineers by degree. Some worked their way up degree-less. They do have to go through all sorts of off-site training once in the department though, given we're under FD

Glancing again at your pic, it looks like the end of the tensioner, closest to the engine is worn down to a smaller diameter than the rest of the pulley? Is it coming into contact with the drive pulley on the engine?

Use the recommended viscosity the engineers call for in regards to operating temp. If Suzuki says it needs a 40 weight when the bike is up to temp, run a 40 weight. The engineers who worked to get all that power out of the engine know it well...and

So there is no cable internet near you? No ATT uverse, or similar fiber provider? So I had a friend who had this deal called clear. It was very slow and he got rid of it. Can you get a dsl connection? Even that may be better than clear.

UOA does not measure exactly engine wear. The amount of data to compare two oils significantly is extreme and can't be done at this level.
