Deadman this is a catastrophic failure of a cct. Usually the spring does not break, it just loosens up too much and the noise, albeit similar, is much much quieter. ;)

I have never heard a broken one before,

I dont want to hear that noise again,

A noise like that is usually big bucks, in any engine,

Glad it was fixed so easily,

have to agree, you can imagine the reaction when my newly built motor let out that (or very similar) sound on the dyno!
I agree with Chris that this thread shows a catastrophic failure, normally the sound does build over time but these things can happen as my CCT failure showed, that one was less than a year old and had less than 1000 miles on it. Guess I found the limit!
I didn't notice my first ever CCT failure starting, I always ride with ear plugs in and the motor isn't normally started until helmet is attached - picked up the rattle when I rode the bike back into the garage having given it a wash down.

When you receive it there will be a metal key in the back of it, you may be tempted to remove or play with it... DONT....

Remove only when the CCT is fitted...

You will only have to find a screwdriver to "unscrew" the tensioner piston and put the key back in if you do....

Ugly, Rene asks about "the key" on a manual CCT. ;)
Well, on manual CCTs, there is NO key! No need for one!
The manual CCT instaed of the plunger and the spring, it uses a bolt and a nut to tension the camchain.
So no "key" there... ;)

On the manual CCT, you adjust the bolt, by screwing it in, to tension the chain. When you reach the desired tension, you lock the nut up against the body of the CCT, holding the bolt secure.

Hope this explains it for you Rene. How long did John(Jaws) say for delivery? He is usually VERY accurate. :)

- I think it might be in the mail tomorrow :)
So what I do is bolt it on "out of the box" and adjust the bolt til it stop rattling?

No man NO! :p
On the new part, there will be a key like a tab. Do not pull it out yet.
1. Install the CCT on the bike with the 2 allen bolts. Fit the new gasket and the crush washers under the allen bolts.
2. When the CCT is installed, pull out the key. You will hear the spring release on the inside.
3. Fit the bolt with the washr on to the CCT, where you removed the key.

DONE!

I can't always understand what is the key essence when installing a manual CCT. Mayby you guys will guide me to a tread on whit this info? Meaning is there any important things i should know... I dont think his comment has anything to do with the key at all I was just giving him a heads up..

exactly Ugly!

- I think I owe it to this tread to make a good video on have to install the new CCT from Jaws.

And I naturally whan´t this video to be 100 % "good" because the CCT is apprently a comen problem for oure belovede BB´s.
SO I am reading through my manual and Haynes book - so I can do the mount in the right way.
So pitch in whit tips and tricks on installing and ajusting it - so we get this video rocking, and help others not hitting the buttom as I did... :)

Hey great video there man!
Thanks for sharing it bud. :)

I think the cct fix is one of the most satisfying ones, as when it goes bad the bike sounds horrible. But 50euros later and voila! RESULT!
:)
Cant argue with that!

Phew!!!! It's sorted:clap::dance:

As others have said thanks Larson for the video. For someone like me who is pretty useless mechanically having a video so I can actually see what needs to be done is soooooo helpful:thumb:.

If we all do this perhaps this could be the start of the most comprehensive online video tutorial for maintaining and repairing our beloved birds :eyebrows:, what do you think folks.

I could contribute classic videos such as 'How to take all the nuts and bolts off your bird and forget where they came from :idunno:' or 'How to undo two bolts, replace the Reg/Rec and replace the two bolts'.

Thanks again for the Video.
Cheers,
Brian,

Yep i am working on my second that has just started the same sound again. First time mine went I had a Dodge cummins diesel setting next to me at a light. So I thought it was him because as my rpm went up it went quiet. Put the old one I had on and the noise went away so I knew it was the tensioner.
