660 chain tensioner

so i'm rebuilding my top end due to 3 valves being bent, the timing chain skipped and bent some valves, i'm thinking that it went out of time from the chain skipping, so i beleive that my tensioner is bad, do i just buy a new one from yamaha or is thier a better one to buy? i've seen one on ebay that is just a bolt that keeps tension so no spring, is that a good one to buy? any ideas are helpfull

I went with the Rhino 700 tensioner om my 686 build. Its a much better design and no mods are needed. The 700 is a ratchet design, the 660 is a screw design that does backoff.
