I don't think you can blip it with the starter, because, if I'm not mistaken, you have to rotate the engine backwards to reset the tensioner.

doesn't the stocker work? Is it because the spring is too weak or the teeth
aren't sharp enough on the ratchet?
Has anyone tried shimming the spring with washers (or installing a stronger
spring) or sharpening the ratchet teeth?
It's making quite a clatter when it's cold and the ear plugs just aren't
cuttin it anymore. ;-)
Is the manual BS about removing the left cover to crank the crankshaft? Can
you just blip the starter button (with kill switch off) to settle it without
worrying about it jumping a tooth...
I'm on digest so CC me of list..
