I am not sure if yams came out with different thickness of chain tensioners but i know the 750 honda's did, the earlier 69-76 K series had a wide slotted tensioner and the later 78-82 DOHC models including 750's-900's had a slimmer slotted chain tensioner setup. I am unsure of your axle size or the width of tensioner you need but if u give me some measurements ill be happy to measure the tensioners i have here, they may just work. Good Luck
