Default Manual cam chain tensioner for 636

What's up everyone? So I ordered a manual cam chain tensioner for my 636 last week and recently got it. The problem is, (and I know this sounds dumb) I don't know where the tensioner is on the bike. I've replaced the tensioner on my old F4i when I had it, and it was located on the top right side of the cylinder head by the frame, but apparently Kawasaki has placed it in a different spot. For anyone who has done this install, any advice would be appreciated. Also, if anyone knows a website with a 636 motor diagram on it please let me know- the Kawasaki website has parts diagrams but only of the cams and tensioner itself and doesn't show the relationship of the tensioner to motor.

I think it's in the same spot; top RH aft side of the cylinder head. If you look at the cylinder head diagram, you'll see the spot it goes on. It's most likely next to the RH frame spar beside the intake port.
