I thought I would throw this out and see what kind of response I would get....In my Desmo Leanings magazine MotoReva is advertising a tension meter for $249.
How many of you would be interested in buying 1 meter and splitting the cost? Maybe 10 or so contributors.....would save a lot of $$$ and looks to be a quality tool.
Any suggestions? It would be a solution to owning w/o the expense. Once your in and sell your Ducati and no longer need the tool you forfeit your money. Let me know....

Just get a mic for your laptop and the software to measure frequency--cheap. Or even an iPhone.

My iPhone has a built in decimeter that is very accurate. What is the recommended belt tension frequency?

Different if you have some "R" models but most superbikes it is 110hz +/-5hz.

Well that's far cheaper than the MotoReva meter for sure! There's even a fail safe method using an allen head wrench to check tension. Anybody know of this method?
