Top end rebuilding on 2000 FC501, q's

Friend is rebuilding his 2000 FC501, mostly on the top end where it needs attention.

He's replaced the cam, cam bearings, and will be replacing the cam chain....and was asking if it was necessary or even worth while to replace the mechanical cam tensioner??

He said while he's in there he wants to do it right, so I told him I would ask on this forum...

Also, is there anything else he needs to attack while he's in there on top?

Thanks!
