Default Kraken 700 tail belt tensioner

I was looking through the kraken manual and saw an optional part (H1064-S) for a tail belt tensioner. The ole google machine didnt yield any results, so I was wondering if anyone knew where to get the part?

I cant find that part number nor any reference in the manual. The only tail belt tensioner I know of is for the Raw.

They never produced it.

Its not really needed on the Kraken with its wide belt spacing.

Yes - just heard back from someone at SAB. The part wasn't produced - just like the tail belt tension for the original G570 - shown in the manual, but never produced.

This question comes up annually at this time of year. Back in early 2019 when the Kraken was introduced the tensioner was advertised at 'available end of June'. Of course it was never in fact produced, but every year someone finds that original advertising and assumes it's coming in 'this' June.

It's because the page comes with the manual so owners justifiably assume its current.
