    Looking for Kona SS chain tensioner stud

    Thanks for checking. I need a replacement tensioner stud as I lost one. And trying to track down this stud is a fiasco. Only option to date is to buy a $30.00 hanger. I've talked to Kona directly - meh, and local dealers with no luck. Anybody swapped hangers and have a spare stud laying around? Oh yea, I've also checked hardware stores/online fastener suppliers.

    I bought a replacement pair from my local hardware store.They were M6 Socket Cap machine bolts at 2.5" or so. I would take in your old remaining one and match the thread pitch. Or I can try to find my oddball one and mail it to you. My Honzo is geared so I don't use them.

    I found capped bolts that will do the trick however in my anal retentive ways, it would be satisfying to have a pair of the rear cover studs. Not first world problem by any means. But I'd gladly sponsor a few pops if you found one. Thanks for the post. The ones I found to fit pretty well were m5 .8 x 1.5 or so, just for the archive.
