Cam Chain Tensioner Questions

I just read a big article about replacing cam chain adjusters at 30K miles. Any information about the 1100 tensioner that I need to know about?

I looked and looked some more. Could find nothing scheduled in either Owner's or Shop Manuals.

Thanks guys. This is what makes this a great site; the quick honest feedback
Thanks again. The article was actually about a Harley.

Some bikes are notorious about having issues with OE, automatic cam chain tension adjusters. Other bikes don't seem to have any issues with them.
Like the other guys, I have not seen anything about V-Stars having an issue with CCT's.
