Geoff, have you checked your FPR?
"clatter" is the best description yet for what I am hearing, I assume no harm will be done if I don't do it immediatelyYes if the bscklsdj is to much it'll kick back and forth as it's on offset weight.
Yep just be patient and do test runs to access the bolts before you start backing things off.
So that's the one that can cause "clatter" rather than a whine when adjustedIt adjust backlash for the idler balance gear. Because of where the rotation is taken from on the crank that balancer has to run across another gear to get the rotation right. So that adjuster sets the backlash for that gear set.
Yes that I do know - with a little screwdriver you can turn your Auto CCT into a manual one for a while, I have the old one from my old motor in my hand right now lolThanks to beestoys, I discovered that you can add 1-2 turns of the spring to the CCT and give it a new lease on life.
I wound the CCT back up in situ and let it spring back then gave a half a turn to tighten it further but the vibration was intense on the screwdriver - very difficult to even hold it, I don't remember it ever being like thatGeoff, for me, I always find that my troubleshooting ability improves when I bounce ideas off others. All we can do here is to be the other for you to bounce off.
Anyway, re the bike. Before you assume the worst, eliminate all other sources of noise/vibration.
1. You "reset" the CCT? How many turns did you put on the spring? With the CCT off, did you check condition of chain guide?
2. Balance weights may need adjusting.
3. Water pump?
5. Stator bolts loose?
4. Fuel injection badly out of balance, FI intake rubbers incorrectly installed?
5. Engine improperly mounted to frame.
6. Large part ie: subframe, radiator, kickstand etc. loose/broken and vibrating.
