Re: CCT Install....

I ended up taking bladeracer's advice and installed 2 socket head bolts into the CCT. I also then used the ball-ended allen wrenches to torque it. Thanks a bunch bladeracer for helping me out once again

I replace all the fasteners with stainless socketheads the first time I remove them.

When i get off from work I'll see if I can get it with a small screw driver.

Re: CCT Install....

You may have read that I took my cct off to inspect it. To replace it i made a short screwdriver out of some scrap tin. I used this to turn the recessed screw so that the tensioner retracted. I then lodged the edge of the tin in one of the slots. The tension on the spring loaded screw held the tin in place.

Then remove the timing inspection cover and use a wrench to turn the crankshaft clockwise until the line next to the 'T' mark aligns with little notch in the top of where the timing cover sits.

Now re-install the CCT. Fasten the securing bolts. When it's in position simply pull out the piece of tin. The tensioner arm will spring forward into position. Replace the end cap screw. Replace the timing cover. Job done.

Re: CCT Install....

I used a small flat blade screwdriver to wind mine in.
Of course, if you have limited room once on the bike, that wont really be possible, but at least with it off, you can see how it works.
AS said,
remove the small bolt in the end, and insert a very small flat screwdriver.
turn the driver and you will see the plunger retract.
Once you understand the concept and see it in action, you may well be able to find something else you can use to hold it in.

Ahh I understand now, I thought you used it to push the chain, and didn't realize it was actully in the CCT itself!

stopsign: if you could make one that'd be great let me know how I can repay you some how!

Re: CCT Install....

There is a drawing in the service manual of a small tool you can make to "preload" the stock CCT.

edit: I think the drawing has been posted here in the past...you might do a search.
edit #2: Here's the post that shows the tool: https://www.fireblades.org/forums/sho...20&postcount=8
