ape cct install

i know its been talked about, and i did some searching, but is there anyting special you need to do while swapping out stock for ape's?

and what is the correct way to adjust tension on the screw?

my bike has 18k on it and im looking to install the manual CCT's very soon.

im assuming you can just remove the stock ones, and toss on the aftermarket, tighten them up and your fine?

thanks.

Re: ape cct install

Ok my bad lol

Its not as simple as a straight re and re

The engine has to be at TDC for each piston to remove the old ones so as to remove them without tension. Setting the tension on the APE's is measured at the cam chain between the two cam gears at 1/4 inch, or was it 1/8th? total slack. There are instructions on the back of the APE package but then erroneously say 1/4 inch "deflection", which is just down and not total slack. They may have changed it after our phone call.

There is another link around with these instructions.

on that it said that ape cct's cause more wear and that the newer cct by honda has the problem fixed... so is the consensus to still use the manual ones or what? I'm nearing 17k soon and will be at 20k come summer... I'd much prefer to do this as preventative then have it break on me...

Re: ape cct install

I am with you on that one.....course is it just miles, or do years play a part....mine is a 99' but only has 6200 miles on her, I put 1200 in the last 4 months....So should I even be thinking about those at this time??? Hmm....

Re: ape cct install

Yeah, I was wondering that too and can't seem to find info anywhere. Is there a difference in the years? Did they fix the design at some point? Mine is an '04 with just over 5k miles, but I would rather prevent a problem than have damage after failure.

Re: ape cct install

I just did the valves/shims the other day and checked the APE CCT's and am happy to report that they did not need any readjustment at all after one year 10k kms.

The spring man
I would refer to my ads for springs and have long think about why manual adjusters are already not an option used by Honda? in SP1 or 2? I dont profess to be the oracle on VTRs or indeed any make of machine, but which modern motorcyle opts to use a nut and bolt to tighten its cam chain? i would be interested to know.
Cheers

Dave
