Here's the Powell Peralta chain tensioner mounted and good to go. It took me a minute to mock it up and then re-mock it up over and over to be sure it was going on straight.
I scratched my head a while before figuring out how exactly to do this and where to mount it. It's a tight fit below my seat with the oil bag and battery. I had to cut a section out of the battery box to make room for the action of the tensioner. I ended up welding it to the rear exhaust bracket that mounts to the frame under the battery (you can see it well in the third photo).
