The CCT is a spring loaded screw type tensioner on the RHS of the motor that automatically adjusts the camchain tension :thumb:I'm having this same problem too, I'm "thinking" that the chain is loose and when you downshift/clutch in the top chain is sinking and dragging against the bar (what the hell is it called?) but when my bike is stationary the chain is touching this bar...
Not sure what "bar" you are talking about Not the swingarm?
There should be a rubber guide over the top and front pivot and returning under the swingarm to protect it :hmm:
Or are you talking about the centrestand, as I had my old chain wear slightly on the CS when I didn't have a rubber "bump stop" on the LH can
Do you have a std can and bump stop or aftermarket can with no stop :idunno:
While sitting on the bike the lower part of the chain should only have ~1 1/4" of travel or slack
Adjusting the slack while sitting on the bike is more important if you are heavy especially if you have a shim on the shock as the suspension compresses and tightens the chain :crap:
and whats up w/ this CCT i keep hearing about... how do you test it to make sure its good/bad... as far as i know its just a (well name implies) tensioner for the cam chain (honestly i didn't know they had one, i thought the cam chain was basically a "timing belt" <shrugs> I'm gonna lay down, now i just feel retarded...:loony:
Only trouble is the springs seem slightly week sometimes and the tension goes off and the efect is usually a bad rattle "like marbles in a can", usually won't damage the engine unless it's left for so long it actually completely fails
John01XX on here sells them for ~$40US, changing is just a matter of taking the RH lower fairng off and undoing 2 bolts, putting a new one in and bolting up and THEN removing the locking key, look HERE :thumb:
